Event Information

Hi and Welcome,
Tiferet Movement Yoga is something I have created being an Orthodox Jewish Woman who was looking for a framework for practicing yoga in an environment that felt culturally secure and that incorporated spiritual teachings from my own tradition.
The Tiferet Movement Shabassanah Retreat partners with the International Shabbos Project to offer the beauty of "Shabbos"  together with the benefits of Yoga, taking its name from combining Shabbos with  "Shavassanah", the final resting pose that follows an active yoga class.

Join us to experience Shabbos in a non-threatening way if you are new to Shabbos, or to enjoy the benefit of Yoga, with it's nurturing and nourishing breathwork and movement in the context of a kosher and supportive Women's shabbaton.  (Financial assistance is available if required)

This year's Retreat will feature a special writing workshop " “Personal Midrash: Writing the Redemptive Stories of Our Lives.” by Sheryl Giffis, a special Yoga Workshop Sunday Morning with Rechelle Spooner and Massage from Michelle Lewish (+1 (845) 213-9736)
