If you want to give your immune system a boost, shake off any lethargy from being indoors and take a real mental break, then good news: Temple Israel is partnering with Breath Lab, a Jewish home for movement, to offer a weekly hour of active but beginner-friendly yoga. We’ll twist, lunge, stretch, breathe, unwind and recharge. All you need is a padded surface and clothes to move in.

Plus, if you’re curious about how breath and movement could be part of a Jewish practice, then stick around after for a half-hour of text study. We’ll look at Jewish mystical wisdom on inner spiritual life and come to understand how the yogis offer such deep Torah. (If you’d rather sign off and extend the mental break, we get it; that’s Torah, too.)

This class is designed for folks who have the capacity to walk a brisk mile and to comfortably rise from/sit down on the floor. If you’d be interested in more accessible movement, please let us know by emailing bgoggin@tisrael.org.

Breath Lab, located on Hebrew College’s campus, is a home for the reanimation of ancient, practical Jewish wisdom around the body and breath. Breath Lab is co-organized by Yaakov Ginsberg-Schreck, a rabbinical student at Hebrew College, and Evelyn Punch, a seasoned yoga teacher with a background in biochemistry and neuroscience.
