At Bhakti Fest, we believe in the power of community and collaboration. Our Work Exchange program offers an opportunity for individuals to play a vital role in creating and maintaining the sacred spaces, flow, and function of our festivals. We deeply appreciate the dedication and support of our volunteers, as their contributions make it possible for countless people to come together to play, practice, heal, and experience the true union of yoga with themselves and others. As a gesture of gratitude, we exchange a festival ticket to those participating in the program, understanding that it can be particularly beneficial to those facing financial challenges. Join our village and be a part of making Bhakti Fest an unforgettable experience for all!
