Judaism’s wisdom, teachings, and practices support us to live flourishing, resourced, integrated, resilient lives with a joyful sense of balance and well-being. From ancient teachings to modern-day practices, we are encouraged to cultivate qualities— such as gratitude, joy, and thoughtful reflection— to enhance our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Connect all levels of being - mind, body, heart and soul - in this gentle, grounding Iyengar-based yoga series rooted in Jewish mystical teachings. Enhance your practices for living in balance and wellness, both on and off the mat. No previous yoga experience necessary. Some yoga mats and props provided; please bring your own if possible. Pre-registration strongly recommended.
