Some of the most insightful, inspiring, and experiential teachers have come through the state of NJ in the last few years. Even better – many of them LIVE here and teach classes regularly to rooms full of dedicated and dynamic students with their hearts and minds totally tuned into everything Y O G A has to offer, on the mat and off.
NJ’s yoga community is undoubtedly a catalyst for subtle and soul-shifting transformations in the way we move, breathe, live, imagine, and tackle life’s challenges.
If you are seeking to deepen your practice, reinvent your practice into a lifestyle, and connect with like-minded human beings, we highly recommend all of these events. These spaces ARE the places where it will happen.

April 19th at 7 PM at Bambu Yoga in Hamilton, NJ
Come and join us on this amazing journey through the chakras. There are seven chakras, or energy centers, in the body. Each chakra is associated with particular functions within the body and with specific life issues and the way we handle them, both inside ourselves and in our interactions with the world.
So if we can balance this chakra system, we can balance how we function in life. Practicing Restorative poses that correspond to each chakra can release these blocks and clear the path to higher consciousness. No expectations are present as we open to the intention of letting go. Props are used to fully support the body in restful postures. While in these poses, students will be receiving Reiki, a form of energy therapy that enhances the natural healing system of the body and creates relaxation and a sense of well-being.
April 20th at 8 PM at Alluem Yoga in Cranford, NJ
Join Kelly and Katie for a soothing combination of Yin Yoga and Acupuncture. According to traditional Chinese Medicine there are pathways (or Meridian Lines) in the body that can be opened to allow energy to flow more freely. Yin Yoga adapts this philosophy with different postures designed to access the deepest muscles and pressure points of the body, to stimulate change, as well as, promote overall calm. Coupling this practice with a group acupuncture session, while in savasana, will help to balance the yin & yang energies, reduce stress, muscle pain, anxiety, and elevating the mood.
