How it all started...
OMY, with a hOMebase studio in Springfield, Missouri was created in 2006 to celebrate the incredible beauty and energy of the Ozark Mountains by providing Yoga nature retreats that included activities such as hiking, camping, rock climbing and paddling all across the greater Ozarks region. As more like-minded people joined in these interests, getting them all together for a festival was the next step.
The Ozark Mountain Yoga Festival is a growing, unique grassroots event which was held for the first several years in NW Arkansas at the Circle Yoga Shala a residential Yoga training facility and organic farm representing the deepest values of compassion, Yoga education and union with nature. As the popularity of the Ozark Mountain Yoga Festival grows more people are seeking access to this one-of-a-kind event and more presenters eager to share. We are blessed that Echo Bluff State Park is anxious to facilitate this natural process.
Echo Bluff State Park, nestled in Mark Twain National Forest has a lodge with conference areas, deluxe rooms, cabins and a 62 site campground. It also features a full-service restaurant and snack/gift shop. The grounds include a mountaintop covered pavilion, amphitheater, trail system and a large spring that creates "Sinking Creek" which flows into the Current River. Numerous other public and private campgrounds and lodging options are very nearby.
During the festival we envision several pavilion tents, the mountaintop pavilion and amphitheater all busy with presentations as well as interesting venders, guided hikes and children's activities all available. Attendees may attend workshops and presentations by featured teachers within one of the three large conference areas of the new lodge which will be scheduled throughout the weekend.
