I am writing again to talk about the expansion of my Shal OM idea. As I have written in the past, the idea first came to fruition when I began teaching Jewish Yoga and Meditation at Hebrew High. Since then I have taught Jewish Yoga at the Hazon Food Conference, the Teva Environmental Educator conference, and at Limmud Colorado. After Limmud Colorado I was informed of a Jewish Learning Grant from Rose Community Foundation for programs inspired by Limmud Colorado 2011. I applied and was awarded the grant and ran a 2 month series of Jewish Yoga classes.
I had always planned on saving some of the funding for a bigger project and when I thought of the idea for a Partner Yoga Havdallah Experience, I knew I had it. While teaching yoga on Shavuot I met Rhonda Wallen, who led an beautiful impromptu Hebrew chant. I recruited her to join me, and along with a musician, Jim Beckwith, we are hoping to provide an evening filled with movement, music, chanting, prayer, and connection. When the JCC heard of the idea they graciouslly offered to provide the space. This is truly a collaborative effort. I hope you will join us for this certainly memorable evening.
Please join me at the Boulder JCC, Saturday November 5, from 7-9pm for a Partner Yoga Havdallah Experience. Welcome in the new week with movement, music, chanting, and spirituality. No yoga experience required and people of all faiths welcome. Bring a partner or come alone. We will be guided through accessible poses and led through beautiful Hebrew chants and prayer. Live music from Jim Beckwith will accompany us throughout this journey. Donations are welcome but not required. Please contact me with any questions.
Blessings, Shalom, Namaste,
