The workshops:

  • Yoga – a spiritual philosophy and physical-spiritual exercise usually practiced for health and enjoyment. The aim in yoga is to achieve a union between awareness and the spiritual self. This is a state in which the emotions are internalized and there are no thoughts to distract one’s attention. The workshop will be led by Ma’ayan Yakobi
