Celebrate Historic Studio's 50th Birthday

It’s time to put aside your iPhone, pack your incense and peppermints, and set your strawberry alarm clock (if you are of a certain age) for Integral Yoga’s “Discover Yourself” overnight spiritual retreat camp May 13-14th, part of the Institute’s 50th birthday celebration.

This totally free event is offering the rare experience of receiving a one-on-one blessing

from ninety-seven-year-old revered Dada J.P. Vaswani, guru-brother to Integral Yoga Institute founder Sri Swami Satchidananda. It’s also serving up yoga classes, yummy vegetarian food, and even the accommodations are gratis. Your crash pad for this gig is a double-occupancy room at the Doubletree Hotel Friday night, near Newark Airport. Good vibrations are free!

Besides all these appealing freebies, I asked Chandra "Jo" Sgammato, general manager of Integral Yoga Institute, about the most meaningful item in the gift package. "To be in the presence of Dada J.P. Vaswani, a great yoga master whose lineage goes back thousands of years, is a rare opportunity today. And to be together in community and connection is a hallmark of the teachings of Swami Satchidananda and Integral Yoga," she said immediately.
