Festival Program 2019

This, our third festival, promises to have something to delight everyone and then some. This year we are packing in even more with four main workshop spaces, a dedicated mens space and chill out space, all packed with workshops and activities across the weekend.

Highlights of our program include a concert with Jai Jagdeesh Saturday night, all night Kirtan Sunday night and gong baths every night. Our workshop program features the most international teachers we have ever hosted and includes the healing practices of Kundalini Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda, as well as the return of Sat Nam Rasayan (more to come on that). For more information about workshops visit our Workshops page.

All meals are included in the program from Friday dinner to Monday breakfast. Dinner will be langar style in the Sadhana Tent. This is where we all sit together in long rows while our food is served with grace by the kitchen seva team. It’s a great way to share while getting to know someone new. Breakfast and lunch will be buffet style. For those arriving early on Friday there will be a light lunch available by donation.

Program extras

In addition to the great program of activities and workshops in the tables below, you can sample some of the healing arts within Kundalini Yoga with an individual Sat Nam Rasayan healing session or Karam Kriya consultation. Bookings will be available throughout the festival.

The Gurdwara is where the Siri Guru Granth Sahib is held and read each day. There will be reading of this sacred text throughout the festival and workshops to share what this sacred text means, how to read it and why we honour it in Kundalini Yoga. These workshops will be relaxed, informative of the processes and protocols required and also incorporate the teachings of Kundalini Yoga so participants develop understanding of how the technology of Kundalini Yoga prepares us to be receptive to the the prayer that flowers from our own hearts, and the divine wisdom of the SGGS. Read more in this blog post.

Unfortunately Parvinder Singh, who was bringing his heart and wisdom to the Gurdwara and the festival as a whole, will no longer be joining us at this years festival. He is unwell after a long period of travelling and giving workshops and just needs to rest now for his health. We are sending our love and healing energy and hope he will be able to be with us at a future festival.

All Days - Kidalini

Bring your kids along to the Kidalini Camp at Kundalini Yoga Festival Australasia 2019! Suitable for children 4-12 years of age, Kidalini Camp will enable parents to drop their children off during the day and delve more deeply into their own retreat.

In the mornings, children gather together for a daily festival style yoga and meditation class, designed so kids can have a positive, uplifting and interactive group Kundalini yoga and chanting experience.

The rest of the day is packed with engaging, age appropriate activities like non-competitive games, music, art projects, play time and more. Depending on the mix of ages, some past activities have included mandala making, shadow sculptures, picture book readings, and stone paintings, to name a few.

Note: All meals at the festival will be eaten with parents, and children are welcome to join morning Sadhana and evening concerts with their parents. We gracefully ask parents/guardians planning to engage with Kidalini Camp to provide Seva such as sharing one of your skills or simply being an an extra set of hands with the children for a session or two over the course of the festival.

Parent Orientation and Information

At Kidalini, your child/ren have an opportunity to participate in the yoga festival in a kid-friendly way through yoga, play, and connecting with nature. They will be involved in a variety of fun activities so they too have a special festival experience, make new friends and memories.

Central to the Kidalini experience is building a community of parents who can support each other and each other’s children to ensure everyone has a great festival experience.
