Surrounded by mount Yotei and Annupuri mountain range,
Niseko is the ideal location to practice yoga.
We have started this Yoga Fest to let the locals know about the different types of Yoga that is taught in Niseko. We also wanted to bring people together practicing yoga in various locations where they can appreciate the rich nature of this place.
Now we are aiming to make this event bigger and easier to access for people from all over Hokkaido and Japan so that everyone can come to Niseko to enjoy this amazing location to practice Yoga!
