WJC Launches Inaugural Shabbat Yoga Saturday, March 16th, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Please note: The event, originally promoted for January 12th, has been moved to March 16th
Join in this relaxing, contemplative, alternative Shabbat experience, as yoga meditation instructor, Robin Wald, leads us in exploring Jewish yoga and connecting meaningfully to the spiritually restorative essence of Shabbat.
Jewish yoga is similar to any modern yoga class, only the teachings and meditations connect the physical body with Jewish wisdom through gentle yoga, breathing, meditation, text study and music. Jewish yoga can offer an accessible way to connect with Shabbat – and nurture whatever that means for you.
Rabbi Segelman shared that, “Traditional prayer, ancient words, can be given new life and meaning through the experience of yoga. I am excited that we are able to provide this new opportunity.”
After the Shabbat yoga experience, we will join the entire congregation for Kiddush.
Adults and teens welcome. No prior yoga or meditation experience necessary. Please bring your own yoga mat. Comfortable yoga clothes recommended.
Robin Wald is a Jewish educator who has been teaching Jewish yoga and meditation for adults, teens and children at synagogues and religious schools in Westchester since 2005. She integrates the wisdom of Torah, Tanach, kabbalah/mysticism, Pirke Avot and Mussar with the embodied physical and spiritual practices of yoga and meditation.
