As a Jewish coach and yoga teacher, I love to combine yoga, meditation, positive psychology and other mindfulness practices with Jewish traditions in order to create new, meaningful rituals. This page will highlight upcoming workshops, events, classes or activities designed with a Jew(ish) participant in mind.
Shabbat Yoga - 2nd Saturdays
Shabbat Yoga in person in Portland, OR. Check out my Yoga page for more details. Classes take place on 2nd Saturdays (10/9, 11/13, 12/11, 1/8, etc.) at Burning Spirits Yoga Studio. This gentle yoga class is an opportunity to deepen your Shabbat practice by creating intentional space to pause your busy schedule, turn inward, and simply appreciate being alive.

TischPDX works to bolster the leadership of young and marginalized Jews and is an incubator of new Jewish ideas and Jewish spiritual creativity on Portland’s East Side.
