with Diane Bloomfield
Starting on February 21st, 2021 at 10 am, Core Connects RI and The Sisterhood of Temple Beth-El are beginning a 4-part series of Torah yoga with Diane Bloomfield. who lives in Jerusalem. Please note NO class on March 7th, 2021. No prior yoga experience is necessary. The cost is $60 for the 4 sessions (February 21st and 28th, and March 14th and 21st). Sign up today and secure your spot. No previous experience in Torah study or yoga practice necessary to participate. A rare opportunity in RI to do something new/exciting/refreshing and fun. Sfat Emet, the 19th chassidic Rebbe, taught that the words of Torah are engraved in the body of a person, but they are hidden and need to be discovered. In each 1 1/4 hour long Torah Yoga class, we plan to begin with the study of a Torah text for about ten minutes. We will then weave the Torah inspiration into a full yoga practice for fifty minutes. The last fifteen minutes, we plan to gather (on gallery mode) as a group for reflections and questions. Through Torah Yoga we can discover the Torah that is hidden in our body, mind, heart and soul.
