Check it out!
Monday night at Dig Yoga in Lambertville
Join Kerri Brynildsen in this workshop designed to analyze proper alignment and target specific yoga practices for rebuilding core and pelvic floor strength. You will learn how to cultivate diaphragmatic breath and its connection to the pelvic floor. A focus on building a strong foundation through guided meditation and self-inquiry will be supported through a journaling exercise. Build an understanding of the core muscle group of the body and learn how it works as a cohesive system for optimal firing other muscular groups in the body. Participants will receive informative handouts and a grounding essential oil blend in support of your practice.
Friday at Metta Yoga in Neptune
In this class, we’ll journey through each of the chakras from root to crown with restorative yoga poses & mantras to help fine-tune our energies for health and awakening. Aromatherapy with doTERRA essential oils will also be used to stimulate each chakra and create balance in the body & mind.
Friday at Elevate Yoga in Hazlet
Join us for our first Healing Circle with Sherry Katz, our resident Reiki Master. Come together to enhance and grow our Sangha, people who are engaged in serving and bringing joy to one another, and who inspire each other to contribute and share in a common field of grace.

Friday at Trinity Wellness Emporium in Union Beach
Meet Miss Isla Newton! Isla is a spokesperson for the NDSS; the National Down Syndrome Society. Isla and her family raise money every year for the NDSS. This year Isla and her Aunt Bridget will be hosting a donation based sound healing event. Every dollar raised will help people with Down Syndrome realize their true aspirations.
Friday at Align Amar Yoga in Tinton Falls
Join us for a lighthearted evening full of soulful practice and an esoteric journey. We will begin with a candle lit Kundalini yoga practice and follow with a short Numerology lecture. You will leave with newfound clarity and tools to better align you with your destiny. Kundalini yoga is an ancient technology that uses breath work, asana, and deep meditation. This alchemical process not only aids in optimal physical health, but helps to release “Kundalini Shakti” our divine spiritual power. Numerology is based on the notion that everything is connected, and that everything exists in perfect synchronicity with everything else. By that standard, your birthdate is a unique code with hidden messages designed specifically for you!

Saturday at Honor Yoga in Pennington
Can Yoga help to re-map postural imbalances and alleviate the physical discomfort often experienced with abnormal curvature of the spine, commonly known as scoliosis? How does someone with scoliosis or spinal fusion practice yoga? This introductory workshop with Liz Alvarez, PT and Yoga Teacher, begins with an overview and discussion of how scoliosis is defined and classified. Then we will explore the role that yoga, modified for various types of curve patterns, can play as a complementary practice to traditional treatment methods. Students will then learn specific yoga poses, breathing techniques, modification recommendations, and basic sequencing guidelines ideally suited to address spinal asymmetry and encourage a deeper level of mind body awareness.
Saturday at Studio Yoga in Madison
The practice of backbend asana rejuvenates and strengthens the spine. As the chest expands the lungs become more elastic, breathing is enhanced, and posture is improved. Overall, one gains a sense of well-being and a positive outlook on life.This workshop will guide you through preliminary work to prepare the spine for moving through simple backbends to the more complex. Care will be given to those that need extra assistance. It is recommended that students have studied yoga for a minimum of one year and do not have significant back issues (such as rods in the back).
Sunday at Athleta in The Grove at Shrewsbury

We encourage individuals of all backgrounds & genders to join during these free workshops! Each workshop will be raising money for two young girls through ChangeALife Uganda.
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.
