We woke up today thinking, “let’s do something special this week to teach our kids, our friends, our family, and ourselves how important it is to celebrate the world and each other.”
(Does a thought go in quotes?! Grammar geniuses, please let us know ASAP).
So we hopped over to Facebook and started perusing the EVENTS suggestion, without limiting our search to “yoga stuff”, which is the usual parameter in our NJYC universe.
Of course we found yogish options because, as you all know, yogis love to love nature, all things outdoors, animals, and other human beings. But that’s not all. We found an art show, fit crawl, and a nature walk in honor of Earth Day. Amazing, right?
Here are six things you need to do with us. Our founder, Bridget Riepl, will be at the FitCrawl, so make sure to say HEY and Namaste when you cross (sweaty) paths with her!
April 12th to the 14th. The show will be up at the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council gallery located on 54 1st Ave Atlantic Highlands NJ.
“The Earth without Art is just Eh” – A collaboration between Atlantic Highlands Arts Council & The Plastic Wave Project. The Making Waves Exhibition will be showcasing up-cycled and ocean themed artwork by local artists in efforts to shine a light on the plastic pollution epidemic that our oceans face. Join us for opening night on April 12th from 6-9pm. Tickets available now! Stop by and enjoy creative artwork, live local music & plastic-free refreshments including drinks from Last Wave Brewery. All ages welcome – Children under the age of 12 will not need a ticket for opening night. If you can’t make it to opening night, come by Saturday (10am – 5pm) or Sunday (11am – 1pm) to see the show. Tickets are only necessary if you will be attending opening night.

Allaire State Park Wall Township
Join us as we celebrate nature while supporting our own health and wellness. We will offer a guided meditation walk led by Mary Jane Kasliner through the trails at Allaire State Park. During the meditation walk, participants are encourage to gather items that they are drawn to which can later be used in building your personal “Despacho” gift. In Peru, there’s an ancient ceremony called the “Despacho.” The word means “sending a message or care package” as an act of love that reminds us of the interconnectedness shared between all beings and the planet earth.
April 14th at Alluem Yoga in Cranford
LOVE IN – SHINE OUT™ is an interactive workshop that takes girls, ages 7-11, on a journey toward love and acceptance of themselves and others. In this workshop, we introduce young girls to the concept of love, kindness, and care of self, others and the world around them through activities, exercises, and journaling. Girls will learn how their thoughts, feelings, words, and actions impact people around them. Knowing that their inner qualities are who they are and that they can use these qualities to make their communities better for themselves and others, girls leave the workshop inspired and empowered.
