She will be assisted by other yoga teachers who will be available to adjust during class. Juluka has partnered with Peace4Paws helping animals through yoga since 2007. Since 2010, Mandy Grant, the owner of Juluka, and Peace4Paws have specifically supported the sanctuary of Cleo, a retired racehorse who upon her injury was sold to a laboratory, and later rescued by NJ’s Mylestone Equine Rescue where she has found permanent sanctuary.
Jennifer Johnson, will be performing jazz-folk original music live on guitar during the yoga class making the evening even more inspirational and unique. She is an award winning song-writer, singer, guitarist and pianist. She is a wild horse advocate and sponsors a horse at Mylestone Equine Rescue where Cleo, the evening’s beneficiary resides. Jennifer Johnson’s program will blend her experience in performing in multiple genres - from classical, Broadway/cabaret, Celtic/Irish to jazz - to her current focus as a songwriter. She has sung at various concert rooms and venues - including opening for Scottish group ‘Old Blind Dogs’ and touring with Grammy musicians George Kahumoku Jr. and Daniel Ho - throughout NJ, NYC, LA, Hawaii and internationally over the last 20 years. Johnson’s other award-winning songs are some of the highlights on her jazz/pop album ‘Midnight Blue’, recorded in 2010, inspired by her early days singing and living in New York City. She worked with Grammy- winning producer Ben Wisch on her first album ‘My Secret Garden’, recorded in Greenwich Village in 2003. Her first cd ‘My Secret Garden’ was recorded in 2003 with Ben Wisch.
At 9pm after the yoga class the participants will enjoy delicious food and wine and live entertainment by another animal advocate volunteer, Ed Saultz. Ed regularly spends quality time with Cleo at Mylestone Equine Rescue.
Ed Saultz, singer, guitar, and bodhrán player, performs the traditional and contemporary music of Ireland and Scotland in pubs, festivals, social clubs, private parties, community and corporate events. His repertoire includes the pub favorites, social ballads, love songs, and political ballads, as well as guitar or bodhrán accompaniment for the dance tunes.
