with Prahaladan Mandelkorn, Ariel Lippman

Yoga teaches one how to bridge our finite consciousness to the infinite; the Kabbalah teaches how to receive the divine flow of intuitive insights and revelations and to achieve balance on the tree of life. Together, they create a sacred container to hold divine energy.

Experience practices from two ancient traditions that will refine your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual awareness. Through storytelling, exploration of sacred texts, and Yoga practices, you’ll expand your ability to receive your own personal wisdom, here and now.

Jewish scholars/yogis Ariel Lippman and Prahaladan Mandelkorn will also lead meditations and visualizations on sacred names and power symbols that enhance connection with the one’s highest Self and singing of chants that transform and uplift emotion and consciousness. You’ll explore gentle Hatha Yoga asanas that increase the flow of energy and breathing practices that refine consciousness.


This was the perfect combination of exploring my Judaic roots and opening up my new-found love of Yoga.—Former Program Participant
