Summer is nearly upon us and with that brings the Island Tides Yoga & Wellness Festival right here in downtown Charlottetown. From rooftop fitness classes and SUP yoga sessions to intimate culinary experiences and gentle sunset yoga, there is something for everyone at this year’s festival.
Here are 10 reasons you don’t want to miss coming to chill in Charlottetown June 16 – 19.
With 30 unique yoga classes happening over four days, there is literally something for every style, practice and preference. Ready for an ideal day? Start off with a gentle yoga class overlooking the water, head to an in-studio kundalini workshop in the afternoon, then finish the day with a yin & reiki class in Victoria Park.
Enjoy getting to know a different side of Charlottetown while expanding your personal horizons and exploring your inner landscape in the heart of Prince Edward Island. From lush courtyards, rooftop patios, and cozy studios to harbourside green spaces, wooded parks, and cool, urban environments – the list is endless for unique spaces to deepen your practice.
The island is known for its incredible cuisine. Experience a taste of it through the plant-forward eyes of Chef Brittany Boothroyd at A Garden Party for Strangers at Fairholm Boutique Inns. Or head to Salt & Sol for the Soulful Living Breakfast, featuring a nutritious breakfast and healthy living talks overlooking the harbour.
Island Tides is a place to learn, connect and engage with ideas that light you up. We’ll have thought-leaders hosting informal and intimate workshops that range from clean beauty and self love to mindfulness and healthy living. Come discover something new, dig deeper into your personal practice, and have a whole lot of fun.
Fitness doesn’t always have to involve dumbbells and downward dogs. Take part in Monelli’s Persian Dance workshop or Polina’s Zumba class on Saturday afternoon, learn to Shuffle at Mel’s Sweat & Shuffle workshop Thursday & Friday evenings, or shake your booty through the streets with the Silent Disco on Friday night.
Sit back and enjoy the variety of entertainment on offer during the Happy Hour Dance Performances on Victoria Row Friday & Saturday nights. Kick off your weekend with an interactive dance performance with Monelli. Then take in a performance by the Xclusiv Crew, a joyful and creative HipHop & Caribbean dance group. Their vibrant shows features dancers of all shapes, sizes, skin tones and cultures.
Whether it’s a hot yoga session, a 5k run, a rooftop workout, or an outdoor fitness & flow class, there are countless ways to get your sweat on and feel great time doing it. Endorphins are powerful hormones that will only add to your overall enjoyment of your time in Charlottetown.
One of the best things about travelling is the opportunity to meet new people. Island Tides attracts people in search of new experiences, interesting ideas and feel-good times. What better place to do it than in a place that’s already naturally therapeutic, beautiful and inspiring?
Get ready to have your perspective shifted after attending various classes & workshops in interesting spaces. From unique events like ecstatic dance & cacao to human design workshops to oracle card readings, you’ll discover a fresh side of Charlottetown while learning new things about yourself in the process.
Charlottetown has a calm vibe that relaxes the nervous system and offers so many ways to recharge. Get out on the harbour with a Stand Up Paddleboarding Yoga class or book a spot on the Sol Paddle Tavern, a solar and human powered pontoon-style cycle boat, for an experience unlike any other.
