"Va’ani Tefilati” (I am my prayer) 
Embodied Prayer through Gentle Yoga @ Home: Holiday Series

Join Rabbi Jenny Solomon and Dr. Barbara Vosk for a prayerful yoga practice via Zoom.  Each session will include a bit of Jewish learning, chanting, and meditation led by Rabbi Jenny and a gentle yoga practice led by Barbara. 

This quiet and rejuvenating practice helps melt away tension in the body and offers another avenue to express our prayers, moving from rote recitation to meaningful and contemplative embodied prayer.  This particular series is aimed at preparing our bodies and souls for the holidays:  Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, and Passover.  By accessing the wisdom of our bodies through yoga and singing, we seek to enrich our experience of Jewish holidays and the sacred rhythms of Jewish life.  This class is appropriate for everyone; no previous yoga experience is required.  

Classes meet on Sunday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
