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.
Free Webinar: Exploring Personal Freedom with Passover as a Guide
April 12, 2022
During Passover, Jewish people relive the story of our ancestors being liberated from slavery in Egypt. Mitzrayim, the Hebrew name for Egypt, can be translated to mean "constriction" or "the narrow place." As free individuals in modern society, we can explore a symbolic Mitzrayim. In this presentation, Amanda Davidowitz will invite you to explore how and where you feel constricted and to appreciate and create meaningful intentions for the freedom you possess. This interactive workshop will incorporate (gentle and accessible) yoga, meditation, journaling, and discussion.
