Our Story


A Seed Was Planted....

A seed was planted after Sam attended several festivals in 2012 in California and was smitten by the festival experience. Sam wanted to curate and create an epic event in her home state of  Vermont but needed to find other like minded folks and a true dream team with the same passion for creating a transformational 5 day yoga and wellness  festival.  Sam jumped into action and created, Yoga Fun Day which was born in San Francisco. Yoga Fun Day are one day and multi day events held across the country.

Her first one day festival kicked off in San Francisco with over 40+ classes, vendors and more.  Although, these one day festivals have been amazing Sam really wanted to create a multi day festival in a remote destination location.

Recently,  Sam was able to move  back to her hometown of Arlington, Vermont.  Sam now splits her time between the Florida Keys and Southern Vermont where she is passionate about building strong communities, conscious living, farm-to-table experiences and bringing more flow arts into her local communities.

Sam immediately called Aime at The West Mountain Inn where she pitched the idea of a “Vermont Yoga Festival” at the historic Inn. Amie loved the idea of creating a yoga and wellness festival and instantly was on board.
