Namas Day Yoga & Wellness Festival at West Chester University

Namas Day, Philadelphia’s premier biannual independent yoga festival, will take place at West Chester University Sykes Student Union on October 19. Philly Area Yoga, an online directory for yoga and wellness in the Philadelphia area, hosts the full day of workshops, networking and information exchange.

This fall’s lineup features 17 workshop leaders from fields of ayurveda to acrobatics, including Baptiste-certified teacher Colleen Devirgiliis of West Chester; Alison Donley, director of West Chester University’s student yoga curriculum; Justin Reilly, the tattooed yogi; and sports coaches Ed Harrold and Cara Bradley. Swag from local wellness businesses, including sponsor Whole Foods Market, will be given away while supplies last.

The event will benefit the Transformation Yoga Project, a local nonprofit outreach program that teaches people in drug and alcohol rehabilitation institutions, the criminal justice system and community transitional centers how to use yoga and mindfulness for personal change.

Cost: Full-day pass, $115; half-day pass, $65. Address: 700 S. High St., West Chester. For registration and more information, call 484-947-6072, email [email protected] or visit or
