Today is November 17, 2018 -
Jewish Federation of NENY proudly invites you to share in an experience like no other! Join us for an OM Shalom Yoga weekend, December 14-16, 2018! Throw on your comfortable exercise clothes, bring your yoga mat, towel, and open mind! Om Shalom Yoga is Jewish prayer experienced through the moving meditation of a Vinyasa flow yoga class. Weaving Jewish text and philosophies with yogic wisdom, and working traditional versions of Jewish prayers into modern musical arrangements composed and recorded for this flow, Om Shalom Yoga creates a unique opportunity to share life as G-d intended—in the present moment. Om Shalom Yoga gatherings feature live musical meditations, singing, chanting, niggunim, and breathwork throughout the practice.
Bring in Shabbat on Friday night at Congregation Beth Emeth at 7 p.m. with Zack Lodmer, Yogi for OM Shalom Yoga**! Experience the peace and presence of Shabbat through the mindful movement of a Vinyasa flow yoga class. Live music. Chanting. Challah. No seats, no books, no stress. Welcome, Namaste, and Shal-om! Free. Space is limited, so please register HERE.
** Om Shalom Yoga is led by Zack Lodmer and features live music during every class.
