The 11th annual Love Your Body Yoga Festival is set for Sunday, June 9 at Reston Town Center.

The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. — rain or shine. This year, organizers will celebrate all area non-profit organizations that use yoga as a tool to transform society.

Organizations will be featured on the main stage and will lead a group class. Attendees can enjoy talks, enjoy music, and take part in a mix of yoga classes.

The event launches the start of Virginia Yoga Week, during which studios and teachers will offer free classes throughout the state.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Southgate Community Center. The event is presented by Beloved Yoga.

More information is available online.
