- Justin Wolfer, one of the teachers at Ahimsa Yoga & Music Festival
This weekend-long festival combines yoga and music, offering attendees the chance to try out traditional and emerging styles of both. Donna De Lory, best known for her work as Madonna's backup singer and solo career, will perform, as will neo-folk-world-rock group HuDost, made up of Moksha Sommer and Jemal Wade Hines, and Grammy-nominated vocalist and guitarist Jai Uttal. For a slightly different atmosphere, guests can attend a late-night Bhakti dance party featuring tunes from Chicago-based DJ Taz Rashid. Over 70 classes and workshops will be held on site, and the retreat is offering all-inclusive packages for lodging at Kaatskill Mountain Club. From November 4 to 6 at Hunter Mountain.
