Ekam Yoga Festival returns this September with expanded classes and community events drawing presenters and attendees across the Mid-North Coast, Byron Bay, Sydney and Newcastle.

The festival will be held at The Francis Retreat in Bonny Hills on September 14-15.

Event organiser, Denis Juelicher, is excited about the festival's popularity within the region and beyond.

"Ekam Yoga Festival has grown so much over the last four years. People travel from as far as Armidale, Byron and Sydney to attend and enjoy a weekend of yoga, music, natural health talks and community activities. The growing popularity of the festival means that every year, we need more volunteers to help us run the event smoothly," Ms Juelicher said.

Volunteers with a range of skills are needed to help with tasks including site set-up, ushering and merchandise. Volunteers are an integral part of the festival experience and often the first port of call for festival goers.

Anyone interested in getting involved will need excellent customer service and communication skills.

When volunteers are off-duty, they can enjoy festival sessions and the free activities in the grounds.

Volunteering opportunities are available, and tickets are now on sale.
