Yoga comes to Riverrock

February 26, 2013 6:41am

The Sports Backers announced last week that Dominion Riverrock will feature yoga this year. They’ll be partnering with Project Yoga Richmond to introduce “yogaROCK” to the three-day festival scheduled for May 17-19. YogaROCK is a one-hour yoga session on Brown’s Island and will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 18.

“Yoga is something that people are doing down by the river every day, so the partnership with Project Yoga Richmond was a perfect addition to Dominion Riverrock,” said Megan Schultz, Dominion Riverrock event director.

The class is a mixed-level flow and is billed as being great for beginner to advanced yoga practitioners. In addition to the session led by certified yoga instructors, all participants will receive an event t-shirt, a goodie bag, a post-event beer or soda, and access to the rest of the happenings including live concerts at the festival.

“We are so excited to be a part of this year’s Dominion Riverrock festivities and grateful for the opportunity to share yoga on a large scale,” said Elizabeth Sobka, an instructor at Project Yoga Richmond. “For me personally, a regular yoga practice has provided benefits including flexibility, focus, breath control, and strength in muscles I didn’t even know I had.”

Sobka guarantees yogaROCK participants will leave feeling “more open, stretched, and ready to take on the rest of the weekend’s events.”

Registration for yogaROCK is now open at www.dominionriverrock.com. The cost of registration is $25 through May 14. All participants must bring a yoga mat.
