the encounter Phe Yoga, which will be held in Puerto de la Cruz on August 20 and 21 within the parallel programming of Phe Festival, doubles its offer this year with eight sessions, instead of the four programmed in the previous edition. The meeting will take place on the island of Lago Martiánez, which It will become a meeting and coexistence space for all the participants..
It is a response to the success of the call in 2020 and the commitment of the organization of Phe Festival with the development of transversal activities that complement the purely musical offer. The program takes place in two parallel blocks from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and attendees will be able to choose between different styles whatever their level of practice. The intention is to bring the different disciplines closer to both people who already practice yoga and those who are about to discover this activity for the first time and cultivate both the physical and the spirit at the same time.
Other more heterodox proposals that are combined with dance are incorporated into the traditional practices of breathing, meditation and relaxation, resulting in an ideal combo for those more restless spirits. As an example, the surf + yoga practice that will take place on Friday from 2:00 p.m. In addition, an inversion workshop with feetup, a Thai yoga session, the renewal of Ashtanga yoga and the dynamism of Yoga Dance, will be the showcase for this activity that has recruited so many followers during confinement.
Phe Yoga will culminate on Saturday with a vegan picnic of coexistence among the participants, by The Dog is Hot and 81 Foods, with the intention of prolonging the experience and developing themes related to the spirit of the meeting, such as conscious eating.
In accordance with health recommendations, the number of places is limited and the sessions will be held scrupulously contemplating all current security measures depending on the level of restrictions in which Tenerife is at that time. Even so, the organization recommends, above all, responsibility and caution. Registration for Phe Yoga can be done on the same Phe Festival page or at Tickety.es.
Commitment to sustainable development
Phe Yoga is an activity directly related to some of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, with which the organization of Phe Festival is firmly committed. Health and well-being and responsible production and consumption are some of the axes on which to reflect and put into practice during the sessions, although Phe's daily activity can influence up to eleven of the objectives set by the United Nations. Thus, for example, in collaboration with the Sustainable City and Planning Area of Puerto de la Cruz, Ecoembes, Ecovidrio and Tenerife + Sustainable, a Waste Management Plan is carried out that guarantees sustainable consumption and production methods, incorporating a circular economy approach that goes beyond waste management.
In accordance with this line of sustainable action, Phe Festival prioritizes issues such as health and well-being, with a self-protection and occupational risk prevention plan managed in collaboration with the Porto corporation and presented, since the previous edition, in the context of the health crisis derived from COVID-19 and in the that all phases of the event are contemplated.
What's more, Phe Festival commitment to gender equality both in the organization and in programming, with policies and measures that promote gender equality in the cultural and communication sector. In this sense, it tries to go one step further as an organization by dealing with equality, or its lack, in these sectors to detect problematic situations and propose solutions.
Clean water and sanitation, with accessible drinking water and adequate resource management in sanitation and the prioritization of clean energy during the festival are other actions in which Phe Festival is committed to sustainable development. To these actions we must also add those focused on economic growth through the supply of quality work, guaranteeing job security, continuity and access under equal conditions.
Definitely, Phe Festival and the City Council of Puerto de la Cruz work together in an inclusive, safe and sustainable city project, taking into account criteria such as well-being, justice and social equality.
Phe Yoga is a sustainable development activity of Phe Festival, organized and directed by Phenomenal and Imoa Productions, and has the support of the Puerto de la Cruz City Council through the Department of Culture. Among the outstanding collaborators are BB Agua, Ecoembes, Ecovidrio and Tenerife + Sustainable.
