Rosh Chodesh: Celebrating the New Moon

Tuesday, June 12, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Led by Alesandra Zsiba & Core JMCW Faculty

This workshop offers women of all ages and bodies an invitation to come together for a nourishing evening of Jewish yoga and mindfulness practice. Jewish tradition teaches that our bodies are deeply in sync with the lunar cycle, and if we drop in and listen, the timeless, embodied rhythms of Rosh Chodesh will seep to our surface. We will immerse in a lunar yoga practice followed by a guided discussion. This month’s theme has yet to be set. For those who would like to schedule an immersion in the Adas Community Mikvah post practice, please reach out directly to Mikvah Director here.
