The Sacred Thread of Yoga is being held in a purpose-built sacred tented community of classrooms; dining and recreation areas; and stalls and a marketplace contained within the Pavilions and open ocean-side environs of San Francisco's unique and beautiful Fort Mason complex. This creates an environment that celebrates and enhances yoga's dearest foundational ideals. Yoga's popularity continues to increase steadily, and the Sacred Thread of Yoga celebrates its tradition and ancestry, whilst at the same time giving voice to its most modern and innovative teachers, many of whom reside in the San Francisco Bay Area and are participating, as Presenters in the Festival. Market leader Yoga Journal states in its 2008 survey that 44% of yogic practitioners in the the U.S. had a household income of $85,000+. Their ages range from the late-20s and upwards; over 90% are college graduates; 60% are professional-managerial; and 85% are women. The yoga community is singularly devoted to its life-style, and no more so than in San Francisco and the Bay Area. The yoga community's purchasing power has shown a sound and determined resilience to economic adversity, a sign of the strength of feeling, commitment and dedication that exists for the chosen way of life. The Sacred Thread of Yoga offers a wonderful opportunity for any Sponsor to establish a long-term and beneficial influence at the heart of that market.

Your support of the Sacred Thread of Yoga Fesival is welcomed. The quality and 'name presence' of the Presenters will draw an attendance of approximately 1,200 yoga practitioners drawn largely from the West Coast, ranging from San Diego to Seattle, from San Francisco to Tahoe to Las Vegas. The Sponsorship Packages detailed underneath are merely a suggestion. Individual sponsorship arrangements can negotiated, and cover a range of options including stipends, public relations opportunities, scholarships and the like. Your company name will be clearly associated with the type and level of sponsorship selected. Please contact Kim Blisard-Willey for further details.
