Halloween? Yes, we’ll get their eventually – and we’ll probably be wearing a costume inspired by K-Deer…
But before we get to the vegan candy, we have a lot of yoga to do.
Basically, October is bringing all kinds of amazingness to our NJ yoga tribe and we want to make sure you have your calendar covered in all the stars and hearts for these special events.
Here’s our favorites:
The VibeWell Yoga Festival: October 27, 2019
The VibeWell Yoga Festival is an epic experience and opportunity to spend a full day in an environment that fosters love, compassion, and connection with inspired individuals who bring their own unique perspective to the practice. Plus it’s a fantastic chance to fully geek out on yoga.
This year’s VibeWell Yoga Festival is happening on October 27, 2019 in Asbury Park, NJ, the “city by the sea”, with a unique vibration that has consistently inspired creative collaboration, artistic evolution, empowered expression, and a non-judgmental lifestyle grounded in universal loving-kindness. Some of NJ’s – and the world’s – greatest teachers, speakers, healers, brands, and creators will be sprinkled throughout the Asbury Hotel, Asbury Lanes, and the Danny Clinch Gallery from 8 AM to 5 PM, ready to immerse you even deeper into our local yoga family.
And speaking of the teachers, here are the empowering human beings you’ll get to spend the day with: Robert Sturman, Jillian Pransky, Karena Virginia, Vanessa Van Noy, Ellen Mosko, Phyllicia Bonanno, Bailey Frumen, Jessica Stickler, Lockey Maisonneuve, April Puciata, Stephanie Moore, Bridget Lyons, Johnny Scifo, and Bridget herself. Maybe you’ve read their books, signed up for their immersions, followed their Instagram accounts, or swooned a little when you saw the group that traveled with them to exotic retreat locations. This is your chance to learn from the leaders in our community!
Their classes range from musically inspired jam sessions to deeply emotional releases, with workshops mixed in between, where you’ll break down poses, uplevel your anatomy game, and empower you to move with greater attention, awareness, and freedom. You’ll have the chance to build your dream day, with a soul nourishing schedule that will engage your muscles, your mind, and your own capacity of making magic.

Cacao Ceremony, Hosted by Aquarian Yoga Center Westfield: October 11
Join Hyacinth Mills as she guides you through a sacred ritual and deep meditative journey with Cacao, Shamanic Drum Sound Healing and Journeying. There will be 3 powerful healing modalities to open your heart, release blockages and to dream your world into being.
Sitting in ceremony is an ancient practice and a powerful act of self love, that gives us the time and space to step outside of our hectic lives and to return to the sacred. It creates an opportunity to journey into the silence within, to reflect upon who we are, how we love, what’s happening in our lives and to see the opportunities available to us. As we sit in circle, as our ancestors once did, held within sacred space and with the gentle plant medicine of Cacao you will have the opportunity to open up for insight and healing. Ceremonial Grade Cacao is Chocolate in its most purest and elevated form, a sacred food and medicine that when used in its original ceremonial context, it has the potential to change your life!
