with Bill Amos
Friday, August 11
6:30pm – 8:30pm



For anyone recovering from trauma or PTSD, this group will offer a community and safe place for healing through gentle yoga, meditation and breath work. Our gathering begins with a one hour yoga class followed by a short break, and will end with time for sharing and a cup of tea. Anyone uncomfortable with sharing may leave after the yoga session.

Meet-ups will be scheduled the 1st Friday of every month in various North Jersey locations. Highland Yoga is honored to be hosting April’s gathering. Whether it is your first time practicing yoga, or you are a seasoned practitioner, all levels are welcome. Please bring a yoga mat and wear clothes that will be comfortable to practice in. There will be a release of liability waiver that must be signed in order to participate in the yoga class.

About Bill Amos: Being personally diagnosed with PTSD, I started this group because I saw what yoga has done for me and I want to share that. I am a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher, currently enrolled in the next level of Teacher Training, and teach at various studios. I am happy to talk with you should you have any questions or need help in any way, and can be reached at www.meetup.com/Brave-Yoga, which is where you can also discover even more information about the group.   Namaste, Bill

Cost: Donation Based Class – Proceeds will be used to help fund the continuation of this class and bring healing to others. If you are unable to donate, please do not feel pressure to do so, let this class be our gift to you!


Highland Sutra Circle

with Stephen Tortorello
Wednesday, August 2
7:30pm – 9:00pm






The intention of the Sutra Circle is to explore the myriad principles of yoga philosophy through various works of fiction and non-fiction and to learn how to weave these powerful principles into our contemporary lifestyles. No experience of yoga or yoga philosophy is necessary to participate. Our next circle will review The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer.

From the Publisher: What would it be like to free yourself from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries? What can you do each day to discover inner peace and serenity? The Untethered Soul-now a New York Times bestseller-offers simple yet profound answers to these questions. Whether this is your first exploration of inner space, or you’ve devoted your life to the inward journey, this book will transform your relationship with yourself and the world around you.

By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, author and spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization.

Pre-Registration is required by July 26, 2017.
All registrants receive 15% off the cost of the book.

Workshop Cost: $20
Book: $17.95 before discount

You Have Everything You Need: A Kirtan

with Angela Cays

Come out for an afternoon of chanting mantra, bathing in the vibration of sacred sound and the shared energy of our amazing community, raising our vibration to realize we have everything we need. The great holding of Mother Earth, the great love of divine spirit, healing elements within and around us, an abundance of beauty and unending resources, and the wisdom of divine teachings, all leading to liberation from suffering to realize the miracle of this life.

“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though there are no miracles. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”  – Albert Einstein

Yoga with Dowels

with Carolyn Fosko
Saturday, July 1
12:00pm – 1:30pm



Inform and enhance your asana practice with the assistance of an empty closet!?!? Props are an immeasurably valuable asset to the yogi’s toolbox. They allow us to experience and benefit from poses that might otherwise be inaccessible, while also creating the opportunity to explore deeper expressions of traditional postures. We can even utilize props to provide feedback, informing us of where our body is in space so that we can more easily reclaim that shape going forward. Blocks, blankets, bolsters, straps and even chairs are among the usual suspects, but in this workshop, we’ll be emptying out our closets so that we can explore the use of wooden dowels!!! Expect a new experience of familiar poses and an abundance of laughs as we navigate our way around and under our unlikely prop!

No need to empty your closet…we’ll provide the dowels, but do register early as props are limited. Appropriate for students that practice strong standing postures. Please tell us in advance if you have any injuries or recent surgeries so that we can determine if this workshop is suitable.



Stephen’s Summer Six-pack Sensational

with Stephen Tortorello

Thursdays, June 8 thru July 6
7:30pm – 8:30pm




A personal goal of mine, ever since I can remember, is to slim down around the waist and be able to see the abdominal muscles that I know are in there below all those layers of pizza and cookies that have built up over the years. As it turns out, I’m taking a much needed beach vacation in 5 weeks and I figured “it’s now or never!”

This “yoga” class is all about having fun, getting stronger, and getting sweaty. Each week, while we rock out to 80’s music, we’ll focus on core exercises, balance, and strength poses. When you register for the 5 week series, you’ll receive a weekly e-mail with nutrition tips, recipes, and exercise suggestions to help meet your goals and an invite to our facebook group where you can share your challenges and successes.

I’ve often said that Highland Yoga’s students are my motivation. You have inspired me to offer the 108 Sun Salutation workshop, Meditation and Yin Classes, and have made me all the better for it. Hopefully, you have grown for the better as well. So sign up and we’ll help each other reach our goals.

Pre-Registration for this workshop is closed.

Cost: $20 Drop-in space permitting
