Yoga Hub Fest is a kick-ass experience with the potential to become one of the highlights of your life… if you’re prepared. To help you make the most of it, we’ve compiled some tips for first-timers (and returning visitors alike). With a little preparation your enjoyment will be as high as your handstand.
DON'T TRY TO DO ASANA ALL DAY LONG.
It’s a natural impulse to want to try everything on offer, but it’s a rookie mistake to sign up for class after class after class of vinyasa/power yoga/hard-core flow. Just. Don’t. Do. It. Instead, take this opportunity to rethink what yoga is and how to get the most from the experience.
Mix your days up with listening to our talks, the chance to indulge in some retail therapy or getting a massage. You’ll not only leave the day feeling fabulous; you'll be able to actually enjoy whatever classes you do take because you won’t be falling asleep on your mat out of complete physical exhaustion.
BE THE (WO)MAN WITH A PLAN.
Research the events well ahead of time and note down classes that intrigue you. What are you interested in learning more about? Read the class descriptions online. Which resonate with you? Which are in alignment with your style of practice and approach to yoga?
Even if you’re going with friends, it’s fun to meet other Yoga Hubsters. One of the greatest things about Yoga Hub Fest is being a part of one another’s unique experiences!
Don’t get discouraged by the contortionist practising beside you. They don’t get bonus yoga points and are no closer to being enlightened.
EMBRACE THE MOMENT
Grab a friend, hula-hoop, dance, move that body and get your groove on! This is a festival–not a football game. Have a go even if it feels weird, chances are it well feel weird at first, but then your having a blast 30 seconds later.
Post on social media to see which friends are also going, and carpool or share accommodation.
PACK THE ESSENTIALS
Don't leave home without:
Please bring Cash. The nearest cash machines are in Newquay Town which is about 15 minutes drive. Most of our vendors will not be able to accept cards.
We will have some yoga mats available to hire, you will need to pay a £15 deposit to hire a mat which will be given back to you when the mat is returned.
Bring clothing for all weather conditions - particularly as you might be standing / sitting in one place for a time - extra layers including hats, scarves, gloves are a good idea.

There are water points around site so please bring a refillable bottle to save on plastic waste.
LEAVE NO TRACE!

CHARGING POINTS ON SITE WILL BE NON EXISTENT, BE PREPARED FOR THIS.
Keep your valuables (money, cards, phone, car keys) on your person if you can. Although we have a strict admission policy, it’s important that you don’t leave valuables in your tents and that you take personal responsibility for what you bring onto site.
Now wild ones, the following are not allowed through (or above) the festival gates:
All items handed in will be taken to the Information Tent, so please enquire there. However, we will need proof that the item is yours.
