Elena's advice for first-timers:
"Take care not to over-schedule yourself. There is so much to do and see when you're NOT in class, so much beauty, fun people, yummy vendors of everything from clothing to superfood."
Elena's must-do activity:
"Garth Stevenson is leading dawn meditations with his magical standing bass at various outdoor locations around the valley."
Namaste to that!
Can't make it this year? You can win a trip to next year's festival over at Gilt Groupe!
