In 2010, Kathy Bega with the generosity of Sarah Nixon founded the Martha’s Vineyard Yoga Festival to celebrate the island’s yoga community.

Three years later, while the heart of the festival’s mission is to offer world class yoga in a spectacular natural setting, we are more inspired than ever by our community and it’s dedication to local food, alternative healing and maintaining a genuine relationship with the land we live on. We believe our farmers, fisherman and all those who live here and engage with each other and the land are also yogis and yoginis - even if they have never stepped on a sticky mat.
