Santa Barbara Yoga Fest Feeds your Soul… and the Hungry

By Steven Libowitz   |   May 14, 2020

Enjoy a full day of yoga with a wide swath of Santa Barbara County yoga teachers from Carpinteria to Santa Maria – including many of your favorites and lots of chances to practice with someone new – in a special participatory benefit to raise money for the Santa Barbara County Foodbank, whose goal is “moving the community from hunger to health.” The classes are offered on a donation basis – just $25 gets you admission into any or all of the sessions – with 100% of the proceeds going to the Foodbank, which has put forth an extraordinary effort to make sure everyone in the community is taken care of at this time of unprecedented need.

All of Santa Barbara’s major yoga studios – Santa Barbara Yoga Center, Yoga Soup, and Divinitree – are joined by a handful of other more specialized ones in participating in offering simultaneous half-hour yoga sessions from 9 am to 5 pm on Sunday, May 17. Each studio is conducting their own registration and producing a schedule of events, with the total sessions numbering just shy of 60. Included are all variations of the practices, including Yin Yoga with Live Guitar, meditation, sound immersions, glow yoga, kids’ classes, Baptiste power yoga, acro yoga, and even aerials.

Santa Barbara Yoga Center, which is hosting the undertaking, has created a full schedule of events at, which also features links for each of the studio’s offerings, or visit the event page on Facebook at
