A portion of the festival’s proceeds will benefit Memphis Rox, a nonprofit that brings rehabilitation, healing, and hope to the community. Located in the Soulsville neighborhood, the Memphis Rox climbing facility strives to build relationships across different cultural, racial, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. No one is excluded from using the facility, regardless of ability to pay.
“The Memphis Rox Yoga Festival is an invitation to salute our remarkable city, our amazing yoga community, and our partnership with Memphis Rox,” says festival co-chair and owner of Delta Groove Yoga Olivia Lomax. “The offerings that day range from goal setting and herbalism workshops to every type of yoga class, SUP yoga, music, discussion, community, and celebration.”
