All participants will need to fill out a yoga waiver before attending class. You can find it in the office (Monday-Friday), or by clicking here. And, while we do accept drop in participants, we'd love if you'd use our sign up to let us know when you plan to come.



Yoga Minyan at Beth Meyer

Beth Meyer offers monthly Shabbat morning yoga in our new Lounge* as a great addition to our Shabbat spiritual practice. The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends by 10:15 a.m. Participants are encouraged to come as they are for our Torah Service and Musaf that follow immediately in the sanctuary. Props and mats are provided - but you may bring your own mat if you prefer. This is a mat-based yoga practice, with guidance and options for all levels. 

Childcare is available with advance notice. Contact the synagogue office by Wednesday prior if needed.

Restorative Yoga
Join Rabbi Jenny Solomon and Dr. Barbara Vosk for a healing yoga practice. Each session will include chanting and meditation led by Rabbi Jenny and a gentle, restorative yoga practice led by Barbara.

In restorative yoga, you will rest in stillness with the body supported by props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks. This quiet and rejuvenating practice helps melt away tension in the body and is healing for those coping with emotional or physical illnesses/injuries, fatigue, grief, and stress. It is appropriate for everyone; no previous yoga experience is required. This is a class of embodied spiritual practice in which participants are invited to "fill their cups" with wholeness and peace.

Classes meet on Sunday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Lounge*.   Props are provided, but please bring a mat if you have one.  RSVP on a sign-up genius is requested, though not required.
