In a time in which we are constantly bombarded with information inviting us to pay attention to our body, being present is such an important and vital component of a spiritually fulfilling experience. As scholar Jay Michelson teaches, our minds are constantly wandering into the past and the future, but our bodies are the only thing fully in the present. This wandering of our mind can be helpful in that it allows us to connect to our past and be inspired to move forward into our future. It also gets in our way, leading to anxiety, unruly judgments and the inability to be grateful for what is right in front of us. Therefore, connecting to our bodies connects us to the present and allows us to fully be present to pray, and to be grateful. It is with this intention that we will be blending Jewish spiritual practices of Kabbalah (mystical Judaism) and Mussar (ethical Judaism), Jewish music, and text study with Yoga to connect us more fully with the present and to the daily miracles we experience. All levels of Yoga experience are welcome. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a yoga mat or a towel, and water.
