Selection Reminder: Rasa-Lila yoga fest today!




Saturday, September 10Rasa-Lila Fest

There’s something to be said about people who are capable of clearing the mind of life’s many distractions. And for some, yoga is the perfect way to do just that. This weekend, Orlando yoga enthusiasts converge at lakeside recreation area the Pines at Windermere for the Rasa-Lila Fest. What’s ironic is how a festival that was initially intended as a day of R&R, at first glance, appears somewhat overwhelming: The one-day event packs an extensive schedule of more than 10 yoga classes presented by local studios, a dozen health-related workshops and lectures by licensed massage therapists and certified laughter yoga leaders, and a slew of meditation and breath-work sessions. Consider this outdoor health and wellness fair an energized version of a steamy Bikram session, only stretching a bit deeper with sand volleyball, paddle boarding, Flammable Babylon Crew drum circles and DJ music. – Aimee Shea (9 a.m.-11 p.m. at the Pines at Windermere, 3409 Maguire Road, Windermere; free-$50; 813-644-9642;
