Peace, Love, RVA Yoga festival debuts in Richmond Saturday

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The first ever Peace, Love, RVA Yoga Festival happened Saturday on Brown’s Island in Richmond.

The festival featured free yoga classes and workshops all day long from Richmond yoga instructors.

Kids also got the chance to try their hand at the exercise and spiritual practice.

Organizers said it was a chance to show off all the resources in the Richmond community.

“For years we’ve been hearing that people are going out of town and paying a lot of money to go to different festivals and we really decided we wanted to highlight all the good things people are doing here in Richmond,” organizer and founder Sue Agee said.

This was the first year of the festival but organizers say next year’s event will be bigger and better.
