The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival is the annual Gulf Coast gathering for yogis. Join Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band and yogis from all over the Gulf Coast region for yoga, kirtan, and community!

The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival is a celebration honoring our Gulf Coast community where we join together our families to access the timeless expression of love. Love expresses itself at the Mahabhuta Yoga Festival through laughter, asana, dance, breath, meditation, essential oils, children, nature, song, art, bodywork, high vibrational cuisine, and community. The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival welcomes everyone to take the time to celebrate and experience the love we have to give.

This year, we honor the Earth Pig. Buddha invited all of the animals in the world to join him for the New Year celebration, but only 12 animals turned up. Buddha decided to honor each of the animals who showed up by naming a year after each one of them, in the order that each animal arrived to celebrate with Buddha. The last guest was the Pig, so this year completes the full rotation of the 12 zodiac signs.

“2019 is the year of the Earth Pig, the fortunate golden Pig, a time to make peace and enjoy life. Pig is a year for harmony and fellowship when kind actions are rewarded. People can work together with good will and enjoy community.

Under the influence of the Earth Pig, we can find some peace, happiness, and contentment in life. Artistic endeavors are successful, including all things foodie and gourmet. There’s more emphasis on the earthly pleasures of sex, the beauty of nature, fine food, and beautiful things. If you’ve been stressed out, this Earth Pig year is good to take a vacation, relax, and not work so hard.

After serious Dog year 2018, Pig loves a party! It’s time for celebration, and appreciation for the fine things in life, especially good food. Ease and enjoyment are valued more than power and status. Power and status make their comeback in Metal Rat year 2020.” ~ Susan Levitt, astrologer
