Feedback form is now closed.
Davening in a Hasidic context can bring forth an image of people joined in prayer that encompasses an almost ecstatic integration of body and soul through song and dance.  American Mussar is a Jewish practice to bring spiritual elevation to daily living.  Yoga offers integration of mind, body and soul.  Please join Mussar Yogi Helaine Sheias and American Mussar Mavin Greg Marcus for a community experience of deep insight and/or divine connection through a Mussar text about the soul trait of humility, deep meditation, and chevruta sharing.  A Yoga mat is not needed.
