New this year to the Gasparilla Music Fest is a unique, super chill third stage at the MacDill Park along the beautiful downtown Tampa Riverwalk. Kick off the Saturday festivities with this innovative lineup:
• 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. Ambient meditation by Chay Prieto and Sonic Explorer – Infinite Third
• 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Acoustic yoga flow class by Body Electric Yoga Company’s Rachel Miller and Christie Lenée on guitar
• 12:45 – 1:45 p.m. Yoga Rhythm Lounge, a one-of-a-kind experience that combines DJ grooves, drummers, and yoga
• Chill Zone with special Acro Yoga Tampa Bay demonstrations, Purple Dot Yoga Project, and Thai Massage
After the meditation and yoga, rev it up for Gwan Massive and reggae-inspired Island vibes. The yoga, dance and live music stages help to keep Tampa Bay on the map with hybrid events going on in the U.S. Okeechobee Music X Arts Festival’s upcoming Yogachobee stage is the site for 30+ workshops to center yourself while amongst top music acts and art. Bonaroo is the site this summer for Yoga-Roo, a yoga and music component to the popular music festival. Miami recently turned the Art Basel conference into a big yogi meets music and art fest at YogArt. And six global hotspots have been the site of major yoga and music festivals such as Wanderlust. So it’s only natural that as GMF expands, so do the special offerings for rest, relaxation and revving up.
Yoga, meditation and hybrid classes reflect the scene’s expansion into multisensory events and taking these mind and body enhancing practices into unique settings. “These arts are essential to us feeling creative and unlocking our spirit,” said Sarah Lesch, Yoga Rhythm Lounge co-founder and lead yoga instructor. “We feel better when we incorporate healthy, fun events into full-on stellar music festivals.”
The MacDill Park stage lineup has been carefully selected to awaken, stimulate, and balance your being. You don’t need to be the next dancer extraordinaire or have any yoga or meditation experience to attend as the event is for all levels.
