Keeping it Fresh…
“It’s going to be an even bigger, better and more exciting event than last year,” promises James Miller, festival producer and director of Treehouse Yoga Studio, Iowa City. “We listened to what people want and we’ve made those changes.”
Among those changes is a move to the luxurious Coralville Hotel & Conference Center, 300 E. Ninth St., Coralville. The hotel, built in 2006, offers a larger venue to accommodate the more than 400 people who are anticipated to attend the festival. The hotel offers 280 oversized guest rooms, six suites, an on-site walking trail, indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, and easy access to downtown Iowa City and area attractions.
This year’s festival will feature more than 25 internationally acclaimed yoga teachers, including 2010 festival favorites, Iowa City’s own Sadie Nardini, Jim Bennitt, and Hemalayaa Behl. Additionally, the festival will include the Midwestern debut of comedian Alicia Dattner. Her solo show, “Eat, Pray, Laugh!” has played to sold-out audiences in San Francisco, London and Bombay.
“You’ll see a lot of new faces this year,” Miller says. “I want to keep it fresh.”
The festival also will bring together John Kepner and Matthew Taylor, current and past executive directors, respectfully, of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. The two will lead a roundtable discussion concerning Iowa’s efforts to regulate yoga teachers.
