“So many incredible teachers and wisdom keepers are coming together for the lecture series,” says Tadasana co-founder Fabian Alsultany. “We’re especially excited about the partnership with The Daily Love. The site does great work in the world; it is a beacon of light and inspiration to so many. With yoga going far beyond the practice that happens on the mat, I’m excited that we are able to provide a space where these great minds can congregate to share their wisdom.”
The Daily Love was created by Mastin Kipp in 2005 under the original name “Thoughts for the Day.” He had embarked upon a journey in 2004 to find his true purpose and figure out the techniques to best manifest Highest Potential. He found that all people throughout history and all walks of life had different morsels of wisdom to offer, finding a common thread shared by philosophers, artists, authors, mystics, religious leaders, inventors, entrepreneurs, musicians, politicians, athletes, actors, polymaths, prophets, media moguls and every day people alike. The Daily Love blends wisdom with style and delivers a daily email and Twitter messages for a fast paced lifestyle. For more information visit thedailylove.com.
Tadasana Festival was founded on the premise of producing a large-scale yoga and music festival in which there is direct interaction with incredible teachers and amazing musicians from around the planet. Never before have yogis been able to experience such a breadth of sonic craftsmen and movement specialists in one place: Santa Monica, the mecca of American yoga. The fully improvised collaborations between yogis and musicians—many of whom have never met before—are certain produce lasting bonds and powerful experiences for everyone in attendance. Tadasana Festival takes place April 20th through 22nd beachfront in Santa Monica at 2600 Barnard Way, Santa Monica, CA 90405 near the corner of Ocean Park Blvd and the beach.
