These workshop is a unique and playful synthesis of traditional Jewish learning and Kundalini yoga techniques. The result is an intimate and often moving experience that will take you on a transformational journey. The workshops combine Jewish learning, some yoga asanas (movement) and breathwork and a relaxing guided meditation. The Rosh Ha Shana workshop will focus on renewal and help manifest positive change in your life. No previous experience of yoga is needed… just an open mind.
