What to bring

What should I bring?

Check your class descriptions for specifically requested items like tennis balls, bolsters, etc., but for most classes you will need comfortable clothes, a water bottle, your mat, any yoga props you like (a towel, a block, a strap – Hanuman Festival does not provide props), and your amazing heart. Jai!

 

Boulder is situated at an elevation of 5,400 feet, and for those of you who are not used to the high altitude, you will want to plan carefully and take extra precautions upon your arrival.

 

Packing Checklist

  • Yoga Mat. Our vendors will have them for sale in case you don’t bring one with you.
  • SPF30+ Sunscreen. With 300 days of sunshine a year, it is sure to be sunny during the festival. Stock up on sunscreen and reapply every few hours to protect yourself from the intense Colorado rays.
  • Sun Hat. You’ll be glad you brought one in the heat of the day.
  • Water Bottle. Staying hydrated is essential. You’ll find that you need to drink a lot more water than normal at higher altitudes, especially when exercising. Keeping the water flowing through your system will also help you flush the toxins you release during your yoga practices.
  • Yoga Props. If you know you need them, bring them with you. Hanuman Festival does not provide props.
  • Layers. It’s sunny and warm most days in June, but when the sun goes away the temperature can change quickly. Come with layers so that you can adjust as needed. You’ll want to have a light jacket just in case.
  • Camera. The friends and memories you make at the Hanuman Festival will last forever.
  • Photo ID. We will need to see your ID at registration and at other times throughout the festival.
  • Ear Plugs. If you have sensitive ears, earplugs are always a good idea.
  • Small Backpack or Bag. All of your belongings will need a safe home to be schlepped around in.

 

What NOT to Bring

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia
  • Glass bottles and cans
  • Video equipment
  • Audio recording equipment
  • Items intended for sale/promotion
Are dogs allowed?

We love all the dogs, up dogs and down dogs, but unfortunately your four-legged friend is not allowed at Hanuman Festival.

Can kids come?

Hanuman Festival is kid-friendly. Vendor Village features kid-friendly activities and children who have practiced yoga before are welcome to buy a pass and attend the festival classes under the supervision of their parent/guardian. We do not offer a discounted child rate. Check our Vendor Village schedule for details.

Misc

Is Community Village Open to the Public?

Community Village is open to the public; donations graciously accepted. Come and enjoy the amazing collection of conscious vendors, food trucks, and community gathering.

Are meals provided?

The VIP Pass is the only pass with meals included. However, NEW to Hanuman Festival 2018, we are excited to offer breakfast and lunch daily Friday through Sunday. Meal tickets are available for purchase.

 

Food trucks and a few vendors will also be on site offering yummy snacks and samples, so bring your appetite!

 

Additionally, Boulder offers a wealth of healthy restaurants within walking distance of the main festival areas.
