Jewish Yoga: “Joga”


April 18, 2024    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Sisterhood cordially invites everyone, from absolute beginners to experienced yogis, to this special Tefilla Yoga practice.

Join us to experience the intriguing intersections of the wisdom of these two ancient traditions. We will incorporate prayers from the evening Ma’ariv service with gentle and restorative yoga poses. The 90-minute session will offer a respite from the weekday grind and provide participants with a unique way to relax.

Our guide for the evening will be Rabbi Heather Altman, a certified yoga instructor (RYT-500), trauma & somatic healing specialist, spiritual director, and former Anshe Emet rabbi. While a rabbi at Anshe Emet from 2003-2005 (full-time) and 2005-2017 (part-time). Heather was affectionately dubbed Rav Yoga.  She created and led Tefilla Yoga Shabbat morning services at Anshe Emet from 2005-2017 and led Tefilla Yoga in residencies nationwide.

Please bring your yoga mat (or borrow one of ours) and water, and dress in layers for your comfort.

Sisterhood is pleased to offer this event to the entire Anshe Emet community at no cost, but registration is required.
