new york yoga journal conference

nyc - yj - 2012There are some things (like keeping up with latest and greatest everything) that New Yorkers just do best. Before we go barreling into the boroughs, we asked Soho Keyleader, Natalie, for her can’t miss picks for the upcoming New York Yoga Journal Conference. Now if only we can get her to hail us a cab…

top 5 must-dos at the new york yoga journal conference

5. the marketplace
The marketplace will be open and free to the public all weekend. There’s tons of amazing health, wellness and yoga brands setting up shop with the coolest stuff in the industry. Need a new photo for your Facebook timeline? Check out our complimentary photo booth where you can strike a pose with yogi and photographer, Andrew Dolgin.

4. get bendy with backbends
Channel your inner acrobat! Check out Effortless Backbends with Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman Yee on Saturday at 8am. After nearly memorizing the Power Yoga DVD, I’m dying to hear Rodney ask me to, “stand in mountain pose”. This dynamic duo will not disappoint!

3. create a life you love
Nothing like a little goal setting to light the fire under your asana. Join us for our complimentary workshop, Create a Life You Love, on Sunday at 1:45pm. Create a vision, set some big hairy audacious goals and start living your best life.

2. i spy with my little (third) eye
Now that your vision has been set, put your practice into motion and learn to trust your inner knowing. Don’t miss Seane Corn in Yoga for Inner Visioning on Sunday at 3:30pm.

1. get your dance on
If you can only make it to one thing this conference, let it be this Friday night event! The amazing Elena Brower and Dana Flynn will co-lead a yoga class set to the beats of DJ Drez. As if yoga and sweet tunes aren’t enough to seal the deal, the class will turn into a yoga trance dance session led by Shiva Rea. (Editors note: We can’t say so for sure but if it’s anything like our own yoga rave it’s certainly an event not to be missed!)

Hi, Used your link above for the pictures from the NY conference and it didn’t show NY conference photos. Most recent photos uploaded seemed to be from February. The site referenced at the event isn’t working either. Anyone else get it to work for them?

Photo Op at the 2012 NYC Yoga Journal Conference was an amazing experience! Another great way you inspire and motivate. Please post where we can view the photos. Can’t seem to track them down with the information given. Love & Yoga.

I found the pics the other day from the link above but now I don’t see them? The only YJC link is from last year.

I had my picture taken at the NYC YJ conference on Sunday. I went to flickr, it doesn’t appear that any of the photos are up! Is there another place I should be looking?

Hey Kerrie,
Once you find your photo, right click on the image and a little pop up window will appear. Select the size of the image you want and then on the next page it will give you the option to download it.

Let me know if you have any trouble,
