SOUTH PLAINFIELD, New Jersey – October 11, 2017 – Namaskaram Yoga and Yoga Nebula are pleased to announce the east coast’s first Hatha Yoga Fest. A unique opportunity for both yoga enthusiasts and beginners, Hatha Yoga Fest offers three days of deep immersion in classical yoga, the way it has been taught in India for centuries. The teachers at Namaskaram Yoga & Yoga Nebula have completed a rigorous 6-month teacher training program and are certified by the prestigious Isha Hatha Yoga School under the guidance of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. Sadhguru is world renowned yogi, mystic, visionary, prominent thought leader and New York Times best-selling author. With his incisive grasp of current issues and world affairs, Sadhguru is a regular speaker at the world’s most prominent leadership forums including the United Nations, World Economic Forum, TED as well as leading educational institutions, including Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Yale and Oxford.
Yoga has been on the rise in the U.S. over the last several years. According to a study published last year by Yoga Alliance and Yoga Journal, 36.7 million Americans practice yoga (an 80% increase from 2012). That number is likely to increase with an additional 80 million people who indicated interest to try yoga in 2016.
Yoga’s Alliance’s research study results further show that potential practitioners are aware that yoga has a positive impact on mental and physical health. When deciding whether and where to practice yoga, convenience and quality of instruction were among the most important factors for Americans. 65% of practitioners prefer to do yoga at home. Others report attending classes at studios or community centers, but for many the scheduling challenge and costs associated with attending a weekly yoga class are prohibitive.
Unlike the weekly guided classes that many yoga studios provide, Hatha Yoga Fest offers
an enchanting three-day experience during which participants will have the potential to re-align their body’s geometry and in turn experience a deep state of relaxation and ease. Participants will have a unique opportunity to learn about different yogic practices with varied benefits. Each individual yogic practice is complete in itself and can be conveniently continued at home without a yoga instructor. For example, Upa-Yoga is a practice that can be done at any location and at any time of the day with primary benefits of higher energy levels as well as reduced back and neck pain. Angamardhana, on the other hand, is a yogic exercise which builds physical strength and tenacity by strengthening the spine, skeletal and muscular system. Three other potent yogic practices including Surya Kriya, Yogasanas and Bhuta Shuddhi will also be offered during the three-day Fest. Further details regarding the specific benefits of each yogic practice is provided at YogaNebula.com
Hatha Yoga Fest will take place on October 27-29 at the Holiday Inn in South Plainfield, NJ. An easy train ride from the rest of the state, New York City, and Philadelphia, Hatha Yoga Fest promises a convenient opportunity to incorporate classical yoga into everyday life.
