Every yoga practice has its own little “shabbat”, savasana – a pose of complete rest at the end of the practice. It might be said that the two words come from the same ancient root “saba or “sava”. The purpose of this resting pose is similar to the purpose of Shabbat – a time to rest, reflect, appreciate and praise. In our busy world, we all need more rest and introspective time. In this Shabbat experience, we will celebrate six days of creation, and then do a series of savasana based restorative poses to experience the joy and inner peace of Shabbat. Bring yoga props if you have them. Come celebrate life and take a real rest. No previous yoga experience is necessary.
Ida Unger, M.Ed. and Certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor grew up with a Yeshiva education and a love of Torah and spiritual pursuits. She later became a full-time yoga teacher, offering classes at colleges, studios and schools. Her path led her to connect her Jewish roots to her yogic wings, resulting in a deepening of both. She has taught Yoga & Judaism to hundreds of students around Los Angeles and nationally since 1992.
