Vendors in our previous events reported great satisfaction with sales.

VENDORS WELCOME!

An unprecedented opportunity
to showcase your wares in
two back-to-back yoga events!

Benefit by having your products and services directly marketed to our targeted audience of approximately 400 dedicated yoga practitioners. In addition to direct sales, showcasing your business here will build brand recognition, generate sales leads, and reach studios and teachers as well as other hotel guests and meeting attendees.

Iyengar Yoga is very prop friendly! We anticipate sales of props, as well as yoga clothes and accessories, and attractive street wear and jewelry will do quite well. The marketplace is located in a bright, beautiful space with easy access and signage. IYNAUS supports vendors like you who are ecologically sound, often family-owned and operated, and do not use sweat shops for production.
