The new White Elephant Village is celebrating the second annual Nantucket Yoga Festival by offering a special rate with savings of $325/person. Guests looking to perfect their sun salutations will find this year’s festival schedule, July 12-14, full of wellbeing classes, lectures, a special farm-to-table dinner, and yoga (of course)!

A natural extension of the top-rated White Elephant, sister hotel White Elephant Village offers guests who book a two-bedroom residence for the weekend a special rate of $450/person per night, as well as one $25 spa voucher per person to the White Elephant Spa.* The hotel offers a bevy of complimentary amenities to every guest, including: morning coffee and pastries; poolside snacks; beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, and boogie boards; beach and ferry shuttles; WiFi; and more.

The weekend kicks off with The Westmoor Club’s Opening Ceremony, featuring an organic buffet dinner, local wine, beer, and fresh pressed juice, and live entertainment such as an AcroYoga performance, inspiring live music, and a performance painting show. Bartlett’s Farm, Nantucket’s oldest and largest family farm, will host all workshops, classes, and an exclusive farm-to-table dinner. The Festival is offering an amazing array of classes with experiences such as:

  • Dharma Yoga Nidra: Experience “after death” while still living – the experience of complete peace, the loss of physical and mental consciousness while still embodied. Follow divine guidance in this precise method of specific relaxation techniques developed by the Enlightened Ones, quickly resulting in mental and physical pacification, rejuvenation, recharging, and healing. Yoga Nidra is the best antidote for impurities and just a few minutes of it corresponds to an hour or more of regular deep sleep.
  • Mangalam Yantra Yoga: Rarely taught outside of Tibetan Monasteries, this workshop will introduce participants to the basics of Mangalam Yantra Yoga, a Buddhist yoga practice that was originally introduced to Tibet by Indian Masters in the 10th century. This profound technique will help one discover one’s own inner Buddha nature through a series of heart opening meditations, guided breath work, and simple physical exercises designed to increase one’s life force and release emotional and energetic blockages.
  • Slackline Yoga FUNdamentals: This entertaining class combines the art of slacklining (tightrope walking) and yoga to learn complete body awareness and redefine sense of balance and mental focus. Not only is it an impressive skill to have, but great training for yoga, surfing, climbing, and just about any other activity!
  • Acro Yoga: This engaging class blends yoga with acrobatics to create a playful partner practice.  Students will learn the fundamentals of acrobatics through partner yoga, basic human pyramids, counterbalances, and collaborate conditioning skills.
