This weekend, the country’s most celebrated yoga luminaries gathered at Yoga Journal’s annual conference in the Big Apple to share their wisdom and sequencing with the city’s huge community of yoga teachers and dabblers.
The conference included classes with Rodney Yee, Seane Corn, Vinnie Marino, and Cyndi Lee, a Get Your Dance On mega-event with Elena Brower and Natasha Blank (above), a marketplace with yoga pants galore, and so much more.
We recap the sweat-and-spirit fest with 10 fabulous photos.

New York’s own Elena Brower of Virayoga and Dana Flynn of Laughing Lotus warmed up the crowd for the yoga happy hour on Friday night.

Tumeric Alive served up its popular turmeric and ginger-infused elixirs, calling them “Yoga in a Bottle.”
Even when classes were packed (most cases), it felt super energizing to share the experience with a new group of yogis who really brought it.
Seane Corn, based in Los Angeles, talks to her sold-out Sunday morning class before launching into the fast-paced flow. A revelation many conference-goers come to, Corn said, is “I thought I came here for my hamstrings, but it may have actually been for my heart.”
Natasha Blank, founder of Get Your Dance On, with DJ Drez, kicked off the Conference with the dance party on Friday night, which drew several hundred yogis.
