Is Yoga Kosher?

With Marcus Freed

Classes & Courses

Some are quick to condemn, some are quick to say "I'll do it anyway" and some are happy to admit they don't know. Yoga and Judaism is a hot topic and "is yoga kosher?" is the most frequently-asked question according to Marcus Freed, teacher and author of The Kosher Sutras: A Yogi's Guide to the Torah, and President of the Jewish Yoga Network. During this talk, Marcus will share Torah perspectives, Rabbinic contraversies and ideas to help you decide! (Quick answer: it is a very grey area with conflicting opinions, but it is a Jewish question, so is that a surprise?). 

The talk will be followed by a book signing of the brand new edition of The Kosher Sutras.
