Yiddish Yoga: Ruthie's Adventures in Love, Loss and the Lotus Position
Sunday, October 31; 10AM, JCC Auditorium; $8/10
A recently widowed bubbe like Ruthie doesn't necessarily come to yoga with an open mind, even if the classes were a gift from her granddaughter. Skeptical of its promise of renewal, healing and transformation, Ruthie can't resist poking fun at yoga's rituals and translating yoga's language into her native Yiddish. As Ruthie's journey progresses, she forges new paths, new postures and unexpected friendships. Lisa Grunberger, a long-time yoga teacher, holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Religions and teaches writing at Temple University. Yiddish Yoga is her first book.

Talk followed by an All Levels 30-minute yoga class taught by Lisa Grunberger and JCC Group Fitness Director, Becky Devlin! (Chair yoga available too!)
