Telluride Yoga Festival
In the summer of 2007, in a beautiful little mountain town in Colorado an inspired Jivamukti Yoga Instructor, Aubrey Hackman had a vision. Her vision was to create a Yoga event in the magnificent setting in which she was so fortunate to call home. But her vision went beyond the physical yoga experience.
Having just returned from training with her teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life, whose strong message of vegetarianism and environmentalism rings through all of their yoga teachings, Aubrey was inspired to create an event that would not only provide yoga students of all levels an enriching experience but also offer them the opportunity to have a positive impact on the world.
A passionate advocate for animal rights and environmentalism, Aubrey wanted to create a Yoga event based on the teachings of karma yoga. She partnered with one of her students, Elaine Demas and her vision began to take shape. The 1st Annual Telluride Festival in the summer of 2008 was the the culmination of that vision.
