Shira Yoga at Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion

  • HUC-JIR One West Fourth Street New York, NY

Shira Yoga is a creative practice that integrates two authentic pathways: yoga and the global Jewish music of Piyut. Piyutim contain some of the most devotional prayers of our tradition and invite contemplation of life in relationship to the universe, the self, and the divine. Awaken the body, heart, and mind through centering movement, live music and guided chanting of devotional music from Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Persia, and other places Jews lived for centuries. This monthly workshop at Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion, led by Rabbi Myriam Klotz and guitarist Dan Nadel, will provide a flexible space to explore the richness of Jewish creativity and spirituality through the body.
