Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I stay during PLAY?

Carson Creek Ranch is 10 - 15 min. from downtown Austin and only 5 min from Bergstrom airport. If you bring camping gear, stay on the grounds for free!

What should I bring?

You aren't required to bring anything, but sunscreen, water, and yoga mat / pad will be helpful. Bring a loving and open mind!

What will the weather be like?

Austin weather in early March is usually comfortably warm and sunny. Workshops will be under tents and trees. Texas weather is unpredictable so some cold weather gear might be useful.

What if I want smaller classes with teachers?

We have the Intensive on Friday before the festival with PLAY teachers. Contact us to book your extra intensive day for $100 more (limited availability)
