What is Barefoot & Free?

Our mission is to create immersive gatherings in nature. Gatherings centered on yoga, conscious evolution, play, and a remembrance of what it feels like to truly feel free.

Each event we offer is carefully crafted around our mission. Our end goal is about YOU finding your AUTHENTIC voice. We believe each person is here on earth to THRIVE. We provide gatherings centered on practices that help each one of us connect to who we really are.

This involves; healing our bodies, hearts and minds. Releasing lineage trauma and past experiences that keep us playing small.
Then opening ourselves up to source energy. Creativity, vitality, bounding passion-  channeling the nectar of being ALIVE!

We bring together conscious high vibrational people. We meticulously choose our presenters. We don’t go for the “yoga famous “ but rather those fully embodying their true self. Teaching with passion, sharing from their heart. We bring people together that will excite you to live your DREAM life.

We pick places on Earth where the land speaks to us. We prefer forests, beaches, trees, rivers, rocks, dirt and sky over conference rooms and cities. We feel we are inside enough, in cities enough. Barefoot, is about getting back to the places both inner and outter that beacon you to listen to your guides.

Our mission is about FEELING FREE. And YES, we love being Barefoot!
