New Year’s Eve Celebrations!

Looking for a great local place to ring in the new year? The District has you covered: parties, music, meditation…whatever vibe you are looking for, we have it! Take a look below and plan your day.

New Year’s Eve at Jivamukti


Jivamukti Yoga Studio is throwing a slightly different New Year’s Eve event. We know most places will have parties and loud music and that’s perfectly fine. But if you want to ring in the new year differently, Jivamukti is here with their first New Year’s Eve event!

The night will have a yoga class (of course) with Yogeswari and Austin, buffet vegan dinner, a kirtan which is a music concert, silent meditation, a home puja which will “purify the space before ringing in the new year and the new decade 2020!” Enter 2020 with a clear mind space and filled with positivity and love.

The event is separated into two parts: the first part is the yoga class and dinner which is $85 for both and attendees must pre-register for that. The second part of the New Year’s Eve event is the music concert, the meditation, and the puja. Those events do not require registration and everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to donate to the second part, the organizers suggest $20.
