Our vision is to foster heath and wellness in our community and beyond by creating an intimate, authentic, world-class yoga festival filled with yoga, music, meditation, hikes, dinners, wellness vendors and more. 

We aim to make yoga, health, and wellness accessible to every BODY, build a sense of commUNITY, and we are dedicated to creating unique programming that can only be experienced in Telluride.


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.

Our goal is to create an intimate and authentic weekend of workshops, classes, discussions and gatherings that celebrates yoga.  We 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 950 participants to Telluride each year with 40+ presenters, over 100 offerings and offering  spectacular venues with our hub at the Telluride High School.
