It’s the middle of August – AKA the “down dog days of summer” for our yoga tribe. We know it can get a little bit tougher to unroll a mat on these super sweaty mornings and humid nights, but we are also HOPING that these 8 events will inspire you to move, groove, learn, live, laugh and love.
Here are the places we plan to be this week in NJ. From live music and libations to GOATS – we’ve found the best of the best. Hope to see you there!

August 19th at Alluem Yoga in Cranford
The Crayon Initiative collects donated crayons across the country, then melts them down to remanufacture them, reducing waste. Best part – the recycled crayons are distributed to art programs at children’s hospitals across the U.S., brightening the lives of young patients during their stay. Bring your used Crayons to Alluem for this workshop! Creatively express yourself through Yoga and Art! Allow the art of movement to collide with visual arts…find the focus, balance and confidence you need to create through yoga. Flow, meditate and then create a piece of art with crayons only!

August 19th at Honor Yoga in Mansfield
Have you ever felt uncomfortable on the mat because you think you don’t have a “yoga body”? If you have a body and you do yoga then you have a yoga body. Please join me for an afternoon of loving our bodies, and all they do for us! The practice will include meditative movement, postures, affirmations and breathwork.
August 19th at Raritan Bay Brewery in Keansburg

May Louie first took yoga in college to fulfill a Phys-Ed requirement and immediately fell in love. She, unfortunately, did not continue with her practice but reconnected with it when she retired from her corporate job in 2002 and has since become a serious yoga enthusiast. After her second retirement last year, she completed her 200-hour RYT certification, studying with Dina Crosta, Ellen Mosko, and Jamie Segal Hanley, with a focus on alignment based flow.
