Om Kippur Yoga

Reclaiming Your Mind
Yoga Restoration for the High Holidays
During the High Holidays, we are called to our community, to reflection, and to immerse ourselves in renewal and forgiveness. How can our breath cut through the noise and enable us to really listen to our aspirations? How do the ways we move our body allow us to access the yearning in our hearts?

As we immerse ourselves in our tikkun atzmi (self repair) of the holiday, this class will offer an opportunity to stretch and breathe – finding resources within our bodies for our return and recommitment to our spirit.

This class is suitable for all levels and is taught by yoga teacher, Emilie Kahn. Beginners and advanced practitioners are welcome. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring any accessories (pillows, blankets, etc.) that enable you to feel relaxed and content.
