    Additionally, there will be a singing bowl workshop held in the Jivamukti yoga studio, as well as meditation workshops and live music all day outside in the pedestrian plaza. The music lineup includes Indian musician Mindra Sahadeo, Brooklyn kirtan artist, Hinudstani classical vocalist Samarth Nagarkar, sitarist Arjun Verma, conscious reggae/dub band Universal Rebel, rock/Americana artist Debra Devi and C.C. White.

    According to Austin Sanderson {co-founder of Yoga Fest Jersey City and co-owner of Jivamukti Jersey City}, “Yoga is a lifestyle. It involves more than just going to a fitness class — it involves seeking to bring balance into every aspect of one’s life. That balance requires cultivating a plant-based, eco-friendly, mutually beneficial relationship with our planet that seeks to tread lightly and do no harm.”
