About the Location
Asbury Park Hotel
The Asbury Hotel is an artistic, interactive, and engaging hotel that brings a new type of lifestyle to Asbury Park.
The Asbury mashes up Asbury Park’s Victorian-era history, rock-n-roll present, and shiny future into a new kind of social hub.
The lobby is designed for perpetual motion; the front desk and
check-in doubles as The Counter, a grab-and-go kitchen where guests can fetch keys, order coffee, or buy something from the retail store. The ground-oor lounge serves as a rec room, with a pool table, pinball machines, board games – and a communal table for travelers who want to feed off the energy and get some work done.
The Asbury, under the design direction of Anda Andrei, the creative lead for the entire Asbury Park redevelopment project, and Bonetti Kozerski Studio, along with David Bowd, renowned hotel innovator, has created a quintet of new venues that are sure to become the compulsive hangout for guests, locals, yogis and visitors alike.
Join us on October 14, 2018 to explore everything the VibeWell Yoga Festival has to offer.
Our VibeWell teachers have carefully created their offerings for students on “all levels” from the most experienced, meditating, levitating master yogis to the newest students, who literally just pulled the tags off their first mats.

With the goal of re-connecting the physical, philosophical and spiritual aspects of Yoga, Jivamukti teaches a living translation of the Indian system of yoga in a way that western minds can comprehend and the practice focuses on how to apply yogic principles to the modern life.
