Are you yoga lover?
Why don’t you join Namaste Festival in Sultan Hotel, Jakarta Indonesia. Almost similar with the Bali Spirit Festival only they held it in the big city, capital of Indonesia, Jakarta. Those of you who like to hang, after a long day of Yoga classes you can continue relaxing in the malls around Jakarta, there are many malls, most famous is Grand Indonesia, Thamrin. Or if you prefer walking from Sultan , you can go to FX where it is not too crowded, or Plaza Senayan, Senayan City. There is also Semanggi. or you want to continue jogging you can go to GOR Bung Karno.
Namaste Festival is an annual event of Yoga, Healing, and Well-being which is dedicated to serve the soaring interest for knowledge in yoga and well being activities in Indonesia. It hopes to bring together a community of renowned international and Indonesian yoga and healing masters, practitioners, and health enthusiasts. I had my experience few years ago and they have made it better by having all the yoga classes outside outdoor instead of inseide, because if it is inside the classes are a bit too small. You can read my previous posts about it. You can rent a mat but better to bring your own, right. There will also be food stalls and other stalls for you to enjoy. Here are the info of the event.
