JERSEY CITY -
 
Thousands are practicing the art of yoga Saturday in Jersey City for Yoga Fest.
 
Yogis were led through sun salutations, also known as warm-up poses, aimed at waking up the body on the Grove Street Plaza.
 
Teachers from Jivamukti Yoga will be leading the yogis throughout the day. Organizers say their goal for the event is to bring people together.
 
"I think it's really great to do more outdoor events like this--especially in the summer," said Wendy Escobedo of Chefs Prep. "It brings people out, you get to mingle, you get to talk to different people."
 
Live music, entertainment and vegan food vendors were also featured at the event.
 
The event coincides with International Yoga Day.
