They’re passionate about a few things. The Earth, The Yoga Tradition, Genuine Human Connection and assisting in your Growth and Development. South Coast Soul Festival is a life event. They don’t care about the new range of yoga pants, how long you can hold your handstand or who has the greatest social media following. They want to know what get’s you out of bed in the morning, what thoughts follow you to sleep at night, which beliefs place a limitation on your capacity for growth, and what you plan on doing with this life? SCSF isn’t just for yoga teachers. It’s for students, non-yogi’s, creatives, seekers, men, women, the LGBTQ community, the ‘old’, the ‘young’. It’s an event for the open-minded, the curious, the hopeful, the doers, the feelers, the thinkers, the dreamers.
They’re an all inclusive event. Their guest list and their ticket holders will practice, laugh, breath, eat, sing, dance, learn, experience and grow alongside each other. Bring your guitar, poetry, hula hoop, art, creative writing, voice, heart, lungs, beautiful mind, and smiling face to South Coast Soul Festival 2019.
Cooler weather means unspoilt, uncrowded beaches and it’s a great time to head to the coast. During the winter months, the coastline quietens down a lot and you might even find yourself at a beach without another person in sight. Pack a picnic, grab the kids and take advantage of the cooler weather and fewer crowds.
