Rasa-Lila Fest 
Grows Into the Southeast’s Foremost Yoga and Wellness Retreat

October 10-11, 2014 in Tampa Bay, FL

This year’s Rasa-Lila Fest will be held October 10th and 11th, 2014, at Camp Brorein in Odessa, Florida, bringing together yoga and wellness enthusiasts from the Tampa Bay area and from throughout Florida and the Southeastern United States. 

Building from last year’s 800-plus participants, this year’s Rasa-Lila Fest is estimated to draw more than 1,000 to take part in more than yoga classes (including kids and partner yoga), musical acts, workshops from some of the most respected holistic health practitioners, and more.

“The Rasa-Lila Fest has grown into a great yoga and wellness destination and we’re proud to take part in such a welcoming atmosphere with those who share our passion,” Rasa-Lila Fest sponsor and owner of Asana Society Clothing, Beth Bentley says. “This retreat specifically promotes the yoga community and overall well being and we’re looking forward to October.”

Rasa-Lila, which translated from Sanskrit means “the dance of love”, began from the idea of Tampa real estate agent Nathan Bangs to bring people together and create an extended community with those who share his passion for yoga and personal well being. 

"Rasa-Lila Fest was created from the simple vision of bringing the local yoga community together,” Bangs says. “Each year the Rasa-Lila Fest has organically grown because it is a true celebration of our passion, uniting our growing community at one location for one great event.”
