Local yogis and health enthusiasts will find something to enjoy when the Interior Wellness: Mountain Spirit Festival heads to Sun Peaks on Sunday, July 19.

The festival will begin with an early morning, lift-accessed yoga and meditation retreat at mid-mountain, providing a unique opportunity for guests to beat the crowds up onto the mountain.

“Guests will get around a three-hour, on-mountain experience, with the Sunburst chairlift opening early, where they’ll get to ride up to Sunburst Lodge, enjoy a guided hike, breakfast, yoga and meditation, and catch the chair back down in time for the Farmers’ Market,” said Carissa Hayes, events manager for Tourism Sun Peaks.

Interior Wellness vendors will also join the Farmers’ Market, with stalls offering information and products focusing on nutrition, yoga, organic produce, and activities tied to health and well-being.

“We’re expecting to have quite a few more vendors than a normal market day. There are also sessions and seminars taking place during the day.

“It’s about promoting healthy living, and giving visitors a chance to experience the mountain in a different way,” Hayes said.
