Friday | Kickoff Party
Start the weekend in style and bliss at our Festival Kick-Off Party and VIP check-in. VIP festival guests will receive a VIP gift bag, but this is no ordinary check-in. The Kick-Off Party is held on iconic lower Duval Street, just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, at the Green Pineapple Wellness Center and its beautiful Anahara Spa, a natural and holistic retreat in the heart of Old Town Key West. VIP guests will enjoy a soothing hand treatment, chair massage, or mini spa treatment while sipping on fresh juice or biodynamic wine or champagne. Nibble on nutritious vegetarian appetizers and organic chocolates while discussing the weekend festivities with other Festival goers.
In your blissful state, continue chilling out to live soulful music in the Wellness Center. Or, take the opportunity to privately explore its inspirational lifestyle boutique offering chic island apparel, yoga wear, handmade jewelry, stones, essential oils and organic skincare. Take a seat at the café for a fresh kombucha on draft. If you are ready to slip into your yogic state of mind, enjoy a gentle yoga class in its peaceful Yoga Sanctuary (pre-registration required). After the party, take a moonlight stroll down Duval Street or dip your toes in the sand at South Beach. But do not forget to rest for the exciting weekend ahead!

Begin the day with an opening group mediation and time for mindfulness and reflection. At 11:00 a.m., yoga classes and workshops begin and will continue at fixed times throughout the day. On the grand stage, kick off the day with an energetic and musical class taught by Dawn B. Feinberg (known as “Dawn B” and founder of Ahana Yoga studio in Miami), certified Jivamukti teacher and licensed movement therapist who is widely recognized as one of the most charismatic and highly respected yoga teachers in South Florida. Learn ashtanga yoga from Emilia Arenas, student of R. Sharath Jois in Mysore, India and one of the dedicated teachers from the ashtanga-based Miami Life Center. If you are in a playful mood, experiment with soaring in acro yoga, or learn how to “walk the line” in a slacklining worshop. Play with handstands and inversions under the careful watch of our trained yoga professionals. If you are new to yoga, take a fundamentals class to learn the basics or a gentle class designed for any age group. If you have always wanted to try tai chi, this is the perfect opportunity. And do not leave the children at home – they have an entire area dedicated to play, fun, laughter, and, of course, a healthy dose of yoga and movement.
VIP guests will have exclusive access to the most coveted location at the event – the Spa Village. Take a break from yoga and be transported to a relaxing and rejuvenating wellness spa created just for VIP guests in the heart of the festival event. In the privacy of the Spa Village tent, enjoy one relaxing mini-spa treatment of your choice (advance sign-ups preferred) or experiment with sound meditation or aromatherapy. Relax and enjoy a moment of peaceful serenity while sipping on a sparkling beverage in your secluded oasis before returning to the festival activities.
During the day, take some time to shop in the Festival Marketplace with its unique array of vendor booths offering yoga and fitness apparel, organic products, local art, aromatherapy, ayurvedic medicine, crystals and stones, and healthy and organic food. At the end of the day, watch the moon rise and the sun set over Key West Harbor (one of the most spectacular and iconic places to witness the sun melting into the sea), all while enjoying live music on the grand stage. This will be a celebration of yoga and wellness that only Key West can deliver.
Sunday Funday | Yoga with Dawn B Feinberg
Enjoy an unforgettable invigorating morning yoga class taught by our rock star yogi “Dawn B” Feinberg, founder of Ahana Yoga in Miami and widely regarded as one of the most charismatic and highly respected yoga teachers in South Florida. Once you meet Dawn B, she will be hard to forget. Dawn’s inspiration for her teachings come from a blend of the breath-based essence of ashtanga and the evolving freedom of Jivamukti Yoga. In Dawn’s class you will find inspiring asana topped off with great music and her signature sense of humor.
Dawn is thrilled to be teaching in Key West at the first annual Yoga and Wellness Fest. The lively class will be held on the spectacular Great Lawn of the 24 North Hotel, providing an idyllic setting to experience Dawn’s fun, playful and energetic teaching style with a Key West flair.
