It’s summertime and that means at least three months of opportunities to practice yoga in unique spaces with lots of natural influences to infuse your flow.
Craving fun in the sun? We’ve found you the best yoga on the beach, in the park, on a farm, in a barn, and more.
Here are just a sampling of the offerings this summer – we are putting out a challenge to our yogi tribe to try them all! Roll up your mat, pack a bag with you beach towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, water, and a few extra layers for savasana – and don’t miss out. Summer is only here for a few short months. We need to make the most of it.
And tag us on @njyogacollective with other events. We are always looking to add to the incredible list of offerings.
You’ll have the chance to practice in the most incredible space with a group of rotating local yoga teachers who will blow your mind!
Starts June 30th – you can book for anything on Eventbrite and we will check in with you through email to get you signed up for the right events. Or book a few – you can also pay at the door.
10:30 AM for the Sundays + a few special evenings

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 in 2017, she completed her 200-hour RYT certification, studying with Dina Crosta, Ellen Mosko, and Jamie Segal Hanley, with a focus on alignment based flow.
