PORTLAND — Yoga lovers will be able to indulge their passion this summer with the launch of a two-day yoga festival in Portland.

Organizers say YogaFest will be held at the East End Community School in Portland on July 13 and 14.

The festival will feature more than 30 yoga teachers and 20 yoga studios from Maine, allowing participants to try different styles of yoga and different teachers. Music, food, vendor booths and a "Friends and Family Yoga Party" are also planned.

YogaFest co-founder Justine Carlisle says her goal is to generate a sense of togetherness among yoga practitioners and to raise awareness about the physical and mental benefits of yoga.
