Peace Love RVA
Peace Love RVA is a locally owned, grassroots effort between two local friends with a shared vision of bringing an all day community yoga festival to Richmond. The timeless, ancient practice of yoga promotes health & happiness and infuses a greater sense of well-being and purpose.
Our goal is to foster a safe and nurturing environment in which participants of all levels can explore the art and wisdom of yoga and meditation. Working with some of Richmond's most talented yoga teachers, artists, small businesses and vendors, we hope to unite Richmond for a day of peace while exploring yoga together as a community.
Join us at Maymont Park on Saturday, June 2, 2018 for a full day of music, local food, vendors, and classes led by some of Richmond's finest yoga instructors.

Born and raised in Richmond, Sue worked for years as a NICU nurse before teaching yoga. As a yoga teacher to the teachers, she remains passionate about the inner calm and strength that yoga can bring.
"PeaceLoveRVA will bring our community together with a call for compassion and love for all. Collaborate and Elevate!"
Stephanie has called RVA home for the past sixteen years and for almost a decade, she has proudly served the community as a yoga instructor and massage therapist.
"This festival will celebrate and highlight our growing RVA yoga community and beautiful river city. We have an amazing representation of local teachers, artisans, and practitioners gathering on Brown's Island for a full day of yoga, meditation, friends, food, music and more. Hope you'll join us!"

“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.”
