What is Yoga Fest?
In June of 2018, Jivamukti Yoga Jersey City teamed up with the
Jersey City HDSID and Jersey City Cultural Affairs to create the first ever Yoga Fest in Jersey City. Held during the weekend of the summer solstice in celebration of International Yoga Day, local yoga studios and instructors came together in the spirit of unity and oneness along with 500 yogis and several thousand onlookers and participated in a street event. Starting with a series of 108 sun salutations, it included meditation, music, and was headlined with a full vinyasa class lead by a well-known international yoga instructor. Over 30 vendor booths were installed at Grove Plaza with a large variety of offerings from henna tattoos to healthy beverages to a selection of yoga clothes, wellness items and related gear and yoga props.
Yoga Fest in 2019
In 2019 Yoga Fest Jersey City is evolving and expanding into an event that will attract thousands of people from near and far.
Additions for 2019 are as follows:
• Second Music Stage with continuous music throughout the day
• Microworkshop Tent
• Vegan Food Trucks
• More Vendor Booths
• Kids and Family Yoga Area
An Additional Yoga Workshop will take place Sunday June 23 @11am at Jivamukti Yoga Center Jersey City with Yogeswari, a headline international yoga teacher and special musical guests.
Yoga Fest Jersey City is designed to Celebrate Unity Through Yoga in Jersey City as well as to establish Jersey City as a yoga destination. We believe it is possible to have everyone come together and work in harmony. Yoga is a positive force that can unify us all in a fragmented world.
