Magnesia Festival is held on the 28th-30th of July 2023.
Magnesia Festival is held at Suomenlinna Island in Helsinki and you can get there by HSL ferry from Market Square in the center of Helsinki. The ferry ride takes about 15 minutes.
The guest harbor in the middle of Suomenlinna caters to visitors arriving by their own boats.
In addition to the ferry ride, it's good to allow about half an hour for transfers on the island, depending on where the workshop is located.

The ticket price includes all of Magnesia's wellbeing, music and other programs. There will be plenty of workshops during the weekend and we have calculated the capacity so that each festival guest can attend an average of three workshops per day. There will be additional activities in the outdoor area which you can also easily participate in. A big part of our event is also hanging out on the island, eating and spontaneous meaningful encounters with other festival goers.
If you wish, your daily ticket includes two reservations. One for a morning class and one for another time. Morning classes are classes that start before 10 am. You can make the reservation when picking up your festival wristband.
Wristbands can be picked up from our partner Twistbe's store, Mon-Thurs 24-27 July. from 14:00 to 18:00 or at the Magnesia information desk during the festival. We recommend picking up the wristband in advance. It is also possible for you to pick up your friends wristband and make reservations on their behalf. Please show proof of the ticket when doing so.
In addition to the advance reservations, you can queue on site for all workshops. We fill about 50% of the capaciy with advance reservations, and thus you have the opportunity to participate in the program also spontaneously according to how you feel. We distribute queue numbers in front of the workshop space, after the start of the previous program number.
In Suomenlinna, the reservation made when picking up the wristband closes one hour before the start of the workshop.
You must arrive at the reserved places no later than 15 minutes before the start of the workshop. Reservations are not possible to change after they have been done.
Most of the yoga workshops are suitable for beginners. You also don't have to do yoga at all if you don't want to, there are plenty of other options available in the program.
The program of Magnesia Festival is designed in such a way that both those who have just started yoga as well as experienced yogis will enjoy it. It's also easy to try out different yoga styles at the festival. In addition to yoga, the program will also include a lot of high-quality and interesting content, from speeches to sound healing, music, dance and coaching workshops.
Bring your own yoga mat, water bottle and a variety of clothes for both sweating and relaxation. There will be some yoga mats for you to borrow in the workshop spaces, if necessary. If you get cold easily or need a soft surface for yoga, a blanket can be a good idea. Also note that the weather conditions in Suomenlinna can change quickly and the island is always windier than the mainland.
There is no age limit for Magnesia. Sunday 30.7. is our traditional family day, when ticket holders can bring 1-3 children under the age of 12 to enjoy Magnesia's family program. On other days, children are warmly welcome to the general outdoor festival area to hang out with their parents, but there is no special program for children or families. The workshops are primarily for adults.
Over 30% of the program at this years festival will be held in English. They are marked with a star in the program.
