On Saturday and Sunday, June 29 and 30, yogis and like-minded people, including those who are new to yoga, can connect with master instructors at the Rutherfurd Hall mansion in Allamuchy, New Jersey, for the third annual North Jersey Transformational Yoga Conference (NJTYC).
This year’s conference features intensive yoga workshops, vendors, lectures and special events throughout the day including ecstatic dance to live drumming, a singing bowl concert and much, much more.
The two full days of 18 workshops are taught by some of the finest master yoga instructors in the tri-state area. Workshop topics include Yoga and Neuroscience, Awakening your Chakras with Asanas, the Psoas Connection,
Anatomy of Backbends, Dialogue with Death: The Katha Upanishad, Meditation and Hypnosis for Accomplishing Your Goals, and Feeding Your Yoga Practice with Energy and Nutrition.
Rutherfurd Hall, the Tudor-style country home that serves as the conference site, is a national and state historic landmark surrounded by beautiful natural areas where you can hike or go kayaking after classes.

The event’s founders, Delia Quigley and Denise Kay, created NJTYC to bring the yoga community of North Jersey together, promote education and give back to the community. Ten percent of the weekend’s profits will be donated to the Foodshed Alliance, a grassroots nonprofit devoted to promoting locally grown food andfarming. Passes are affordable, with two-day, one-day and split-weekend or half-day passes starting at $90.
