Join us for an embodied journey into Sacred Time and Shabbat (Friday night). We will start out on our mats, explore various postures, incorporate chant and some kernels of Torah. Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable clothing. After the class, all are invited to join in the making of the blessings over the Shabbat candles, wine and challah. If you'd like, please bring a small edible offering (veggie/dairy) to share for the potluck meal to follow.
