Planning an outdoor event in Eagle during October can be a bit dicey, but much to the relief of Eagle Yogafest organizer Yvonne Schwartz this year sunny skies are forecast this weekend.

“I feel like I am getting married again. I have really been watching the 10-day forecast,” said Schwartz. “I am very excited about the weather forecast for this weekend. It’s looking great. ”

Eagle Yogafest is slated to begin Friday, Oct. 3 and run through Sunday, Oct. 5 at the Brush Creek Park. While a number of the classes are slated for the Brush Creek Pavilion, other festival activities are set to happen outside. With the forecast calling for sunny skies and temperatures around 70 degrees, it ought to be a picture perfect weekend in the Colorado high country.

Schwartz describes Eagle Yogafest as a community-oriented event that will feature “The best of local, regional and national yoga teachers such as Shannon Paige, The Yogaslackers, R.R. Shakti, Gina Caputo and more.”

The event website encourages attendees to enjoy both the festival activities as well as Eagle’s recreational amenities.

“We have all kinds of yoga opportunities and anyone can participate, regardless of their level of expertise,” said Schwartz. We have both ends of the spectrum. That is something I am passionate about.”

As the weekend approaches, Schwartz said some of the events premiere offerings are filling up fast. All of the classes at Eagle Yogafest will have limited numbers. Schwartz noted that in addition to three-day and one day passes, individual passes are available for those who can only sign up for one or two classes. There is still time to register for the event at http://www.eagleyogafest.com and registration will also be accepted on site at the event.
