HISTORY

TEAM

MARISA WEPPNER

Yogafort is a passion project to bring the joy I feel while traveling and attending yoga festivals to my hometown of Boise! I want everyone to experience the magic and radiant love of a well-curated lineup of diverse yoga practices all set to live music ~ creating an elevated, inclusive vibe like no other.

CELESTE BOLIN

I commit myself to Yogafort because I love my hometown of Boise, Idaho + Treefort Music Fest + Dance, Yoga and Live music! Getting all those things together with amazing talent and spirits from across the world is my pure bliss state, and I am committed to offering it to everyone in an inclusive, accessible, and affordable way.

MIRANDA PALACIO

I’m a dancer on a mission to empower all beings to love their best lives, embrace their individuality, and find confidence though movement and self-expression. Yogafort is just that. A safe environment where you can find that sweet release amid other beautiful unicorns just trying to do the same thing.

CORRINE HATHAWAY

Yogafort is a way I remind myself that I am part of something bigger, a community. It’s easy to feel separate from each other in the busy-ness of day to day, but through events like this, we remember that we are all connected, and as Ram Dass said, “We’re all just walking each other home.”

“You are the sky – everything else, it’s just the weather.” – Pema Chodron

CONNOR HEIKKILA

Yogafort is my favorite time of year in Boise. Three days of diverse yoga and movement are the best gift anyone could ask for! The energy of the space is full of love and and acceptance, one where anyone can thrive. Yogafort is truly magical.

“When you become the image of your own imagination, it’s the most powerful thing you could ever do.” -RuPaul

JESSE JARVIS

I love yoga, music + community. I love Yogafort because it encompasses all of this so perfectly.

“Nothing is forever. Everything is impermanent. It is this impermanence, which makes our lives so special.”

ALEX MCLAUGHLIN

Really connecting to my body through movement keeps me closer to being my best self. Yogafort is such a safe, unique environment for cultivating your relationship with yourself, and the relationship we all have with the communities we’re a part of. It is so special to me!

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”- Lao Tzu
