Project Description

The shores of Glen Cove are set to host the Long Island Yoga Festival, an intimate and pioneering event in the world of yoga and music, from Fri June 21st to Sun June 23rd. Buddha Jams Yoga, a retreat for yogis and music lovers, will open its doors to a select group, offering 70 spots for an immersive yoga experience and additional spaces for the live music events, in a celebration of International Day of Yoga and the Summer Solstice.

The festival promises a unique lineup featuring yoga sessions, meditation workshops, and soul-stirring live music from some of the most respected figures in the discipline. Renowned yoga masters Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee, Alan Finger and Sarah Platt Finger, “TheYogiMatt” aka Matthew Giordano, and celebrated Long Island teachers will grace the mats. The musical ensemble includes world famous kirtan musician Nina Rao and DJ Taz Rashid, who are set to elevate the festivities with their rhythms.

Guests can look forward to more than just yoga and music; the festival is a mosaic of cultural experiences with food trucks, craft vendors, dance parties, drum circles, and more. This event is designed to be a microcosm of Buddha Jams Yoga’s philosophy—creating a communal song where every individual’s voice finds harmony.

The first day of the festival will also mark the release of “Heads Bowed Down,” a song by Jason Samel, the visionary behind Buddha Jams Yoga. This musical piece is a poignant tribute to his wife, highlighting the transformative power of yoga and the spiritual and emotional salvation it offers.

Buddha Jams Yoga, the innovative creation of Jason Samel, is a sanctuary that transcends the typical yoga studio. It embodies a cultural hub where spirituality meets creativity, nestled within the tranquil ambiance of Glen Cove, New York. With a sprawling area exceeding 5,000 sq ft, the studio provides a dynamic and versatile setting, tailored to facilitate an array of events that nurture the body, mind, and spirit. The design of Buddha Jams Yoga echoes the ethos of unity and personal transformation that yoga advocates, creating a welcoming atmosphere for all who enter.

Within its walls, the studio is equipped with two stages and sophisticated sound systems that resonate with nearly 2,000 watts of sound, perfect for a range of events from live music yoga classes to intimate concerts. Buddha Jams Yoga is not just a place to practice yoga; it’s a vibrant community space where every visit promises a new experience. It’s a venue where drum circles pulse with the heartbeat of the earth, dance parties celebrate joy, and art galleries inspire. It’s a place where wellness and healing services are interwoven with the energy of communal gatherings, making Buddha Jams Yoga a unique destination for those seeking to enrich their wellness journey and artistic appreciation.
