Join us for introduction to Jewish embodiment and yoga with Yaakov Ginsberg-Schreck and Evelyn Punch. What does Judaism have to say about the body? Why would the Hebrew word for spirit, neshama, also mean breath? And why does it feel so good and refreshing to stretch?

In this workshop, we’ll uncover pieces of our ancestors’ buried wisdom, illuminating the Torah’s ancient focus on body and breath as key aspects of the path to spiritual awakening. Yaakov, a rabbinical student at Hebrew College, will guide us in text encounter. Then Evelyn, a yoga teacher with two decades’ experience, will lead an all-levels movement and breath practice.

Come as you are; no prior Jewish/movement experience needed.
