Where does the Mammoth Yoga Festival take place?
You’ll be practicing all over Mammoth Lakes, but the Festival base camp is in the Village at Mammoth Lakes, surrounded by nightlife, restaurants and where some of our indoor yoga sessions and live entertainment will take place.
How do I apply to be a Presenter/teach at the Mammoth Yoga Festival?
MYF does not have an open application process. Presenter selection is based on very specific criteria and is by invitation only. If you are connected to a yoga studio, and your studio is interested in partnering with the festival, we are happy to open the opportunity of volunteer based teaching on our Community class schedule (open to the public). Check out our studio partner page for more info.
Where can I purchase my pass?
Purchase your tickets here. Once you've purchased, you'll receive an email from sched.com inviting you to create an account where you can create your Festival schedule once we have released the live schedule. Make sure, if you're getting more than one pass, that each has a unique email associated with it so that you can each create different schedules.
How do I create my schedule?
Once you've purchased your pass and the schedule goes live, you'll receive an email from Sched.com inviting you to create an account/profile. Remember to use a unique email for each pass purchased. If you've already got an account with Sched.com, your account will be linked to your purchased pass. If you are hearing that registration is up but you haven't received an email from Sched.com, make sure you check your spam folder.
Where can I find my schedule?
To view your schedule, once released and you have already selected your sessions, log in here. Make sure you use the same email you purchased your ticket under. You can also click on your profile picture in the navigation menu, which will take you to your profile page and schedule.
All ticket sales are final and non refundable. No refunds will be issued for any reason. However, you may transfer your pass(es) to another attendee. For instructions on how to transfer your tickets, click here. Any customer feedback on and off-site may speak with April and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What should I bring?
Please bring your yoga mat and any additional needed props (i.e. meditation cushion/back jack chair, mat towel, block(s), strap(s), blanket(s), etc...). Make sure you bring a water bottle to hydrate, sunglasses, sunscreen, and clothing for any weather. Mammoth can be unpredictable this time of year!
Can I bring my own Stand Up Paddleboard for SUP Yoga?
No. Boards are provided by our SUP Yoga Paddleboard company sponsor and are designed specifically for Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga. Additionally, equipment is set up specifically to provide smooth class experiences and and transitions between sessions.
Why are we practicing in conference rooms on carpet?
The use of conference rooms at yoga festivals and conferences is standard across the globe. We are working with the best that we are able in order to provide ample indoor space that accommodates the large numbers of students in attendance. This is a prime opportunity for Yogis to tap more deeply into the practice, shift perspective, move past distraction/expectation, and learn how to flow with the challenges that life often presents.
Is this event kid friendly?
All free community classes welcome families with children. Our main Festival event classes are 18+. However, children ages 14+ are welcomed and must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of entire sessions.
Why are classes not marked beginner/intermediate/advanced?
One of MYF’s main missions is to create an environment in which Yogis of all levels, whether novice or seasoned, may experience a class that is accessible, challenges everyone at their individual level, and invites in a new level of awareness. Our presenters have been carefully selected and invited to teach at MYF because they have demonstrated the capability to see every single student in the room and meet them exactly where they are in both body and mind. We encourage attendees to practice with honesty as to where they are both physically and emotionally and choose the specific postural adjustments and/or progressions that serve your unique range of motion and practice level.
Will there be food?
Yes. Food vendors will be available. While we try to accommodate dietary restrictions, we cannot guarantee perfection. So, please plan ahead if necessary. Our vendor booths will be listed on our exhibitor page and a list of restaurants may be found here.
How far is lodging from activity?
Most lodging facilities in Mammoth are less than 2 miles away and complimentary public transportation is offered and runs from 9:00am to 6:00pm. Find our Summer schedule here. Check out our Lodging & Camping pages for exact mileage from each of our lodging partner locations.
Is there RV Parking available?
In most on-site lots, yes. Again, we highly recommend utilizing Mammoth's public transit system. A short list of RV Parks (with and without hookups) is available on our Camping page.
Where do I check in?
Check in location will be announced for 2019 later this year.
What if it rains?
The weather in Mammoth Lakes can be super unpredictable, however this is a rain or shine event. Events may be held regardless of weather conditions as determined by venue operators and management. Where events are held outdoors, the risk of weather conditions is assumed by the Attendee. Mammoth Yoga Festival may modify the terms of this Agreement and reserves the right to do so at any time.
Where do I park?
We highly recommend taking Mammoth's complimentary public transportation for all sessions inside of running hours. For sessions taking place in outdoor locations, street and on-site parking are available. However, you will want to arrive early to be sure you make your session on time. Summers in Mammoth can be crowded, and the early bird gets the worm! Early morning parking will be much easier than late afternoon/evening.
