Joyful Yoga - A Jewish Shabbat Experience
When and Where:
5pm at By the Rivers
690 Cleveland Avenue
Saint Paul, MN
Prepare for Shabbat with simple yoga stretching, breathing, and meditation.
(All movement will be adapted to need.)
Friday March 18th focus: We will deal with the kabbalistic sefirot and the body with attention to energy and grounding.
Free, Shabbat Multi-Faith potluck follows at 6pm
Details: Judaism has many physically spiritual traditions. These traditions have often borrowed from the culture, understanding that Kavvanah – intention- is everything. We will use modern day yoga techniques to explore Kabbalah principles of body-mind centering that include “bending the spine,” breathing fully, and creating a greater mindfulness. Music and discussion will be included, to help create a community-centered, joyful experience.
I have too many past performance to post, but the following list might be of interest:
Storyarts Presents: Frankenstein
Stories based on, inspired by, or tangentially related to Frankenstein. Cia presents “Golmah” – A story relating how it was actually the Jewish women of Prague who made the first Golem, a female or Golmah.
“Smart Girls are Beautiful” at Patrick's Cabaret Restless Time Zones:
Based on a classic Jewish tale of Elijah the wandering biblical prophet, Cia Sautter’s “Smart Girls are Beautiful” updates such a story. It is a similar trope to the one found in Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well, which itself was based on a folk tale about a smart woman who is clever enough to resolve issues of love and life.
at 9x22 Dance/Lab 1/23
Bryant Lake Bowl Theater, Minneapolis, MN
Named for the modest dimensions of the BLB stage, this exciting dance showcase features unfettered dance exploration. A discussion moderated by choreographer/curator Laurie Van Wieren follows each piece, giving audience and choreographer alike the opportunity to react and explore the work together.
Joyfull Yoga Synagogue Classes
