I was not sure what to expect at Barefoot & Free upon my first day. I arrived skeptical, uncomfortable, and assumed I would not belong as I was a casual yogi. Instead, I was met with complete acceptance. I noticed a diverse group of attendees that made me feel as though everyone had a place here. On top of that the well-curated experiences are transformational and the teachers are some of the most talented, intelligent, insightful, and inspirational teachers I have ever come across. Every class was the best class I’ve ever had.  Every day, I felt fulfilled — mind, body, and soul. Before attending, I was not aware how much I needed a weekend like this to become reacquainted with myself. To notice how powerful my body is, how thoughtful my mind is, and how connected my soul is. Barefoot and Free did that for me. I was reacquainted with and fell in love with myself again. And I am so so grateful to Beth and to the incredible volunteers, staff, and teachers who bring this experience to life. They are changing lives for the better — I know they did that for me. I have already bought my ticket for next year and urge you to do the same. You will be better for it. And you deserve it.

Barefoot and Free Yoga Festival is nothing short of magical!! As a yoga teacher, I have been to several yoga festivals and events and this is by far my favorite! The location has natural charm, there is a vast selection of classes and workshops, and the event is well organized and put together. I felt so joyful and connected being in the woods and everyone I met at the event was kind and welcoming. I will definitely be returning!

I went to Barefoot and Free their first year and obviously didn’t know what to expect. I was supposed to go with a friend but their life was so crazy at the time I ended up going by myself. I had an entire weekend pass and was alone. As soon as I got there it felt like home. A weight was instantly lifted. I saw friends that I already had, and was constantly being connected to new amazing people. It was just so natural, and peaceful. I ended up going from class to class and basically just bouncing around from one thing to another and never once felt alone. I have been impatiently waiting for July to come again since before the festival was even over. I’m so happy Beth, and company have created this magical weekend, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year!
