Be apart of a ride with a cause!
Volunteers are extremely important to the success of our festival and we cherish your time, energy and dedication that you bring! Volunteers are expected to work hours with the vast majority of the shifts occurring during the festival weekend.
Positions include: event check-in, registration/info desk help, merchandise sales, set-up/tear-down, the green team, parking gurus and more! Keep in mind that some of our positions will require time on your feet and may include physical work like lifting :)
As a volunteer, you will receive a complimentary 3-day Namaste Pass (valued at $399) that will be issued no later than June 15. Please note there will be a $39 registration fee that is required and that we will also be collecting a credit card deposit to ensure commitment with all scheduled shifts. We will not run your credit card, but if you cancel or fail to show for a shift, your card will be charged $250. Additionally, please mark your calendars for our Mandatory Volunteer Meeting on Thursday, July 19th from 4-5pm in the Palm Theater located in the Telluride High School.
To get started on your way to being a volunteer, please fill out the below volunteer application. Space is limited, so please apply early. We give preference to our local Telluride yogis in an effort to give back to our amazing yoga community here in Telluride, but there are lots of positions if you are flexible. Thank you for giving your time and energy - it's wonderful to have you involved!

If you have a moto that is not a dirt bike, please contact if interested in helping with our motorcycle escort.
