Since 2007, The Telluride Yoga Festival has been working to bring the gift of yoga, in all of its many forms, to Telluride for a weekend filled with world-class instructors, philosophers, scholars, artists and musicians.
Their goal is to create an intimate and authentic weekend of workshops, classes, discussions and gatherings that celebrates yoga. They believe that yoga (including asana, breathing, and meditation) is a tangible tool for transforming human consciousness and that there is no better place to celebrate the benefits of yoga than in Telluride.
Co-owners Albert Roer and Erika Henschel, purchased the festival from the founder in 2013 with the goal of retaining the intimacy that has made it a success while expanding its reach and growing what the Telluride Yoga Festival offers.
Today, the festival brings over 750 participants to Telluride each year with 40+ presenters, over 100 offerings and offering spectacular venues in both Telluride and Mountain Village.

Telluride, a former Victorian mining town in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, is set in a box canyon amid forested peaks at the base of a popular ski-and-golf resort. Nestled at the end of a lush canyon and surrounded by some of Colorado’s most rugged peaks, Telluride is majestic, beautiful and removed from the usual. 45 miles from the nearest stoplight, you can’t help but feel like you’ve stepped away from it all. The pure mountain air and blue-bird skies inspire you to realign with nature and breathe life in full. Nowhere else in the country or perhaps the world, does such place exist.
