Bella Luna Yoga is on a mission to celebrate a global, ever-expanding yoga consciousness. It’s first stop is the Caribbean Yoga Conference, February 2-5, 2012 at the Rose Hall Resort and Spa in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Bella Luna founder, Kimberly Moon, is excited to announce the addition of the Caribbean Yoga Conference to Bella Luna Yoga’s agenda to enhance the world’s passion for yoga. “We are excited to bring people together from around the world who are inspired by the practice of yoga, curious about exploring our planet, and ready to embrace a growing community of practitioners from all walks of life,” says Moon of the warm celebration of sun, sadhana, sand and sangha.
The conference lineup includes workshops for all abilities with world-class instructors including Seane Corn, Sharon McConnell-Feanny, Nadine McNeil, Simon Park, Gaia Budhai, Stacey Shanks, Jenny Sauer-Klein, Jason Nemer, Sadie Nardini and Toni Bergins. Topics range from Vinyasa Flow and Journey Dance to Core Strength and Kudalini. The conference will offer two 2.5-hour sessions each day with opportunities for morning meditation and Noon yoga on the beach.
A unique element to this conference is the outreach to the community, and country, where the conference is being hosted. In partnership with Shakti Mind Body Fitness in Kingston, Jamaica, The Caribbean Yoga Conference is pleased to offer The Shakti Love Scholarship. Through The Shakti Love Scholarship, Jamaican youth councilors, social workers, and teachers are invited to bring their passion, knowledge and curiosity to the conference at absolutely no cost. In addition to their own restorative R&R, each scholarship recipient will have the opportunity to learn to yoga-related skills to bring back to their professional lives from some of the world’s most beloved yoga teachers.
“Through creating Bella Luna Yoga I was beginning to realize the presence of an emerging yoga community within the various islands were I was traveling. I developed the Caribbean Yoga Conference as a vehicle for bringing the global yoga community together. By creating a scholarship program for the local community members, we support the continued growth of the yoga community on the island and the yoga culture of the Caribbean,” Moon says of the scholarship program.
Sponsorship opportunities are available starting at $700. The yoga community is an economic power house spending $5.7 billion a year in the US alone, becoming a part of the Caribbean Yoga Conference will give any company’s services and products international recognition, marketing power, and an audience of approximately 500 participants.

Conference registration includes access to all the conference events including your classes, morning meditations, Noon yoga sessions, keynote address, closing address and evening events.
