Peace Love RVA
Peace Love RVA is a homegrown effort between two local friends with deeply rooted ties to the Richmond yoga community.
From the beginning stages, our primary vision was a resounding commitment to keep this yoga festival free to the public. It was a massive undertaking, but, completely a labor of love! We are here to inspire each other.
We wanted to create a time and place for yoga studios, students, teachers, and newcomers to gather and experience a community united in this peaceful and authentic practice. To honor our practice and our community, all local teachers and musicians donate their time and services.
Join us at Maymont Park on Saturday, June 2nd, from 10am-4pm for a day of music, vegetarian food, local merchants, and classes led by some of Richmond's finest yoga instructors.
We can lift up our community and unify our message. Peace. Love. RVA.

“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”
— T.K.V. DESIKACHAR
“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.”
— AADIL PALKHIVALA
“I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul”
“Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.”
