Torah Yoga with Al Dressler

Consider a new experience for your Shabbat morning — “The Jew is in the Lotus:” Hatha Yoga & Jewish Meditation for Beginners will be offered on Saturdays at 10:30 starting January 12th. For this class, we will focus on specific Hebrew words and symbols from Jewish Meditations and Kabbalah. For example, the words “Shalom”, “Hesed”, “Netzah” and “Chai” as mantras and the symbols such as the Kabbalah “Tree of Life”, “Hamsa”, the number “18” and the “Star of David” for mandala visualization exercises. The instructor, Alan Dressler began practicing Hatha Yoga and Meditation in 1994 after a traumatic car accident. He started “self-physical therapy” to improve his health and began study from his mentor, Adeline Osuch. In 2008, Alan started teacher training and from 2008 to 2014, he taught Yoga at the Jewish Community Center in Bridgeport and the Jewish Home of Fairfield County. Since 2015, he has been helping teach at Merkaz.
