Yoga Mussar Practice on Middah of Simcha, Joy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We will open with a brief (roughly 10 minute) text study on the concept/character trait (middah) of Joy as expressed in Torah and prayer and Mussar commentary/teachings. This discussion will bridge to a 45-60 minute yoga practice incorporating the themes touched upon in text study. Physical postures and the flow of movement along with brief kavanot (intention) will expand upon and express the concept of simcha (joy). Our embodied practice will ready us for the month of Adar.
