10 Reasons to Attend the Island Tides Yoga & Wellness Festival 8

1) Try a Variety of Yoga Classes
With 30+ unique yoga classes happening over four days, there is literally something for every style, practice and preference. Ready for an ideal day? Wake up with an in-studio hot yoga & live music session, head to one of Charlottetown’s green spaces for a soulful flow class in the afternoon, then finish the day with a candlelit stretch or relaxing sound bath.

2) Discover Charlottetown in A Whole New Way
Enjoy getting to know a different side of Charlottetown while expanding your horizons and exploring your inner landscape in the heart of Prince Edward Island. From healing circles in lush courtyards and cozy studios to sun salutations in harbourside green spaces, wooded parks, and cool, urban environments – Get ready to have your perspective shifted while learning new things about yourself in the process.

3) Indulge in Intimate Culinary Experiences
The Island is known for its incredible cuisine. Experience a taste of it tapas-style at this year’s Tides Penthouse Poetry Social or treat your senses to a multiple-course menu by some of the city’s best chefs (more info on this event coming very soon).

4) Connect with People & Ideas that Light You Up
Island Tides is a place to learn, connect and engage. We’ll have thought leaders hosting informal and intimate workshops that range from recovery and healthy living to intuition and the art of breathwork. Get your creative juices flowing through the several journaling workshops on offer. 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 inspiring?

5) Dance Your Heart Open
Fitness doesn’t always have to involve dumbbells and downward dogs. Take part in Polina’s Zumba class or Monelli’s Persian Dance workshop on Saturday afternoon, or shake your booty through the streets with the infamous Island Tides Silent Disco on Saturday night.

6) Take in Free Dance & Music Performances
Sit back and enjoy the variety of entertainment on offer throughout the festival. Snag a patio seat on Victoria Row for Happy Hour dance entertainment, or pop by Founders’ Food Hall & Market on Saturday afternoon for live cultural performances & local music.

7) Get Your Endorphins Flowing
Whether it’s a hot yoga session, a 5k fun run, an invigorating pilates class, or a spin class on the water, there are countless ways to get your sweat on and feel great doing it. Endorphins are powerful hormones that will only add to your overall enjoyment of your time in Charlottetown.

8) Soak Up Some Vitamin Sea
Charlottetown has a calm vibe that relaxes the nervous system and offers so many ways to recharge. Get out on the harbour with a SUP yoga class or book a Spin & Yin class held on the Sol Paddle Tavern, a solar and human-powered pontoon-style cycle boat, for an experience unlike any other.
