Soul Fuel Yoga Fest returns to benefit homeless youth

Ocean views, calming music and healthy living: There’s not much more that could perfect a Saturday morning.

For its second year, the Soul Fuel Yoga Fest will return on Saturday, March 18 to the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., attendees can participate in free yoga classes on the Marina Terrace or check out the local artists, vendors and musicians that will enhance the day’s experience.

Classes will be led in two parts. The first begins at 10:30 by Wellness Warrior Hella Neumann; the second begins at noon by Steven Cummings and Gina Shiotani.

Throughout the day, guests can also enjoy live performances by Steve Gold, DJ Kanoya and Joshua Brinks, all of whom have well known music in the yoga culture.

Although the event is free, guests are encouraged to donate $10, with the proceeds to benefit the Monarch School, a unique school that focuses on educating homeless youth.

Yoga mats will be onsite, but guests are encouraged to bring their own. Space and mats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
