What: V Elements (pronounced Five Elements) is a one-day sustainable yoga, music and arts festival. There will be yoga classes by day, led by some of the most sought after instructors California and beyond have to offer, and electronic, funk, hip hop, soul and world music by night from local, regional and national touring artists.
When: April 6, 2013 (03/23/13)—This date represents the first weekend of the vernal (spring) equinox when the length of day and night is equal, emphasizing balance.
Where: The heart of San Diego at the Liberty Station Green: http://libertystation.com/directory-type/parks-recreation. This space is an expansive, grassy, outdoor field that is centrally located within San Diego. It is easily accessible both by bike and car, from beach areas and from downtown, and offers plenty of parking. There is an incredible view of the San Diego bay from “the green”.
Why: V Elements Festival will focus on balancing the five elements represented by earth, wind, fire, water, and space. We will display this through the use of yoga, music, community, health and environment.
