As any trend, person, ideology, etc. mounts in popularity, it can easily diverge from its original state.

Perhaps this is simply a flexibility that allows for such expansion and appeal to a broader audience. Perhaps it is an imminent fall from grace that occurs once the subject is spread too thin. Yoga today is a $27 billion dollar industry. This is big business and a number that reflects its quick rise in popularity.

One of the highlights of summer in Boulder, Colo., is the Hanuman Yoga and Music Festival, held on the banks of the Boulder Creek. Boulder is a spiritual Mecca and hot spot for yoga, and the festival is a representation of that booming community and its impact in the greater yoga world.

Yoga teachers from all over the country are brought in to teach alongside extraordinary local teachers to “raise the vibration” on a personal and collective level. Rain or shine, this event lights up the Front Range with music, dance, service and spirit.

Hanuman Presents is an on-going event presentation that brings Hanuman Festival teachers into local yoga studios across Colorado in an effort to keep the essence of the festival alive throughout the rest of the year. This weekend, Hanuman Presents welcomes guest teacher Giselle Mari.
