Join our growing community February 14-17, 2019 for our first gathering in Texas!
Mission Statement: To enhance awareness of the synergy between Judaism and yoga.
Each morning, teachers will lead a full yoga practice that is integrated with a Jewish teaching. In each session, we will focus on a different family of thoughtfully sequenced yoga poses including standing poses, forward bends, baby back bends, and beginning inversions, so that throughout the weekend we will cover a wide and balanced range of poses. These yoga sessions are suitable for all levels of experience. Trained Torah + Yoga assistants will be available to help individual students adapt the poses as needed.
(Each afternoon, we will explore the Torah text from that morning’s practice through classical shiurim (teacher-led Torah), group discussions, and traditional Jewish chevruta (study with a partner). Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary because we will examine original Hebrew texts together with their English translations. At the end of each day, the afternoon Torah study sessions will be integrated back into a series of restorative yoga postures and breath work.)
In the early mornings and late afternoons, there will be Torah + Yoga classes offered to the community by alumni of the Torah + Yoga program.
In the evenings, we will be treated to experiential learning sessions connected to our theme led by alumni of the Torah + Yoga Program.
No previous Torah study or yoga practice is required for participation in this retreat. All are welcome: newcomers to Torah + Yoga, long-time practitioners, and alumni of the Torah + Yoga program.
