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.

Each year in June International Yoga Day is celebrated in cities and yoga studios around the world as they come together to celebrate union through yoga. In many instances, a public is event is held. This year, Jivamukti Yoga Jersey City has teamed up with the HDSID (Historic Downtown Special Improvement District) to produce the first Yoga Fest Jersey City on Saturday June 23. The event will occur in the green pedestrian zone on Newark Avenue. It will begin at 7am and end at approximately 5pm in the afternoon. A gift bag containing samples and offers from the participating yoga studios and merchants will be given to the first 200 registrants. The gift bags will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis the day of the event. Please arrive early to be sure you get one. 

Families are welcome to bring children but in order to be  admitted to the main area, children must have a yoga practice and be capable of doing the sun salutations with the adults. A release is required for children under 18 also.

What to Bring

Starting at 6:30am on June 23, a registration table will be in place where participants will be required to register and sign in. You should pre-register here on this site before to speed up the process.

You should bring with you a: 
• yoga mat,

There will be Porta Johns and water and a first aid station in place near the registration table.

The Producers

Jivamukti Center Jersey City and the Jersey City Historic Downtown Special Improvement District have teamed up to produce the first Yoga Fest Jersey City. Special thanks goes out to Jersey City’s Dept. of Cultural Affairs for assisting in setting up this event.

We hope that the event will grow each year and eventually become a destination for yogis and like-minded people from around the world.

Our corporate sponsors are listed here. Without them, we would be unable to bring this dream to reality. Please support their businesses.
