1. A room or building in which goods are manufactured or repaired.

2. A usually brief intensive educational program for a relatively small group of people that focuses especially on techniques and skills in a particular field.

So, what is a Tern Fest Workshop?

Our professional, mentor-led workshops are a deep dive into a particular subject, with the goal of enhancing a participant's knowledge or skills on a given topic.

But what does this look like?

Tern Fest Workshops have included creative writing projects, photography, landscape and wildlife sketches, nature journaling, and more. The activity may be preceded or concluded by educational lecture or guided discussion.

Who is it for?

The Tern Fest hosts various workshops for various ages. Pay close attention to the Tern Fest Schedule color-coding system to ensure that you're planning on attending the workshop best suited to your interests.


YNS is pleased to announce that the 13th Annual Tern Fest

will be hosting a number of workshops, open to participants of all ages.

Rewilding Yoga by Bailey Williams


See schedule for class times! We will have a class each day of the festival.

We co-evolved with the living world. Our nervous systems are listening for balance and connection, poised to respond to anything with grace and grounding. That said, we live in a time of disconnection from the natural world, which separates our bodies from natural rhythms and inundates our bodies with stress on a cellular level. This practice will gently call on our innate bodily wisdom to feel grounded and connected. You’ll leave this practice feeling spacious and gathered. Expect meditative, breath-based movement and awareness exercises to connect with your own inner rythmns. No experience required. 

Stay tuned for other workshops being added in for 2024!
