ABOUT YOGAFEST

Yogafest is about Community, Connection and Contribution.

COMMUNITY

We create events that bring Communities together in beautiful green spaces. Whether it’s for one class or a 2-day festival, come and meet like-minded people in your local community in green spaces that provide a place to relax, learn, breathe and enjoy being you.

CONNECTION

Yogafest is about connecting you to nature, to yourself and to like minded people in a beautiful outdoor setting.

CONTRIBUTION

We believe in karma yoga, giving without expectation. It’s our way of paying it forward. By keeping our events free, you have the opportunity to donate to our charity so you too can feel the joy of giving.

MEET THE FOUNDER – ELAINE KELLY

Elaine founded Yogafest in 2010 while working for Microsoft. Driven by her life-long passion for health and wellness, she wanted to support her fellow employees with their work life balance. Her plan was to organise free yoga classes to encourage employees to go outside and stretch and breathe in the beautiful grounds behind their offices in Dubai internet city. On 21st December, 2010 in celebration of the winter solstice, Yogafest was born. Today Elaine organizes many wellness events, always outside and always free and since 2013, in support of local charities.
