2019: Year of the Earth Pig
THE YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG 2019
This year, we honor the Earth Pig. Buddha invited all of the animals in the world to join him for the New Year celebration, but only 12 animals turned up. Buddha decided to honor each of the animals who showed up by naming a year after each one of them, in the order that each animal arrived to celebrate with Buddha. The last guest was the Pig, so this year completes the full rotation of the 12 zodiac signs.
“2019 is the year of the Earth Pig, the fortunate golden Pig, a time to make peace and enjoy life. Pig is a year for harmony and fellowship when kind actions are rewarded. People can work together with good will and enjoy community.
Under the influence of the Earth Pig, we can find some peace, happiness, and contentment in life. Artistic endeavors are successful, including all things foodie and gourmet. There’s more emphasis on the earthly pleasures of sex, the beauty of nature, fine food, and beautiful things. If you’ve been stressed out, this Earth Pig year is good to take a vacation, relax, and not work so hard.
After serious Dog year 2018, Pig loves a party! It’s time for celebration, and appreciation for the fine things in life, especially good food. Ease and enjoyment are valued more than power and status. Power and status make their comeback in Metal Rat year 2020.” ~ Susan Levitt, astrologer

The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival is a celebration honoring our Gulf Coast community where we join together our families to access the timeless expression of love.

The Mahabhuta Yoga Festival welcomes everyone to take the time to celebrate and experience the love we have to give.
We are so grateful for your support by attending the 7th annual Mahabhuta Yoga Festival. Bring friends, bring family, or just bring yourself and meet beautiful people who love yoga, dancing and eating good food as much as you do. Kids under 13 are free and welcome to attend the Galactic Child Yoga village.
This is an event highlighting the talents of regional yoga teachers, artists, healers, and musicians from the SouthEast Region. There will be yoga workshops and educational seminars on wellness over the weekend with the “Pig” room suitable for 300 people and the “Earth” room suitable for 75 people. Music is alive in a majority of our daytime workshops with Friday and Saturday evening concerts that leave everyone in bliss and refreshed for the next day of celebration. Feel the love, Share the love, Be the love. Namaste
