Energy Yoga In Yiddish

In this yoga class, we will progressively reactivate the body and mind to develop strength and flexibility. This class’s slow and gentle nature is perfect for beginners and is also great for other students who can sink deeper into their practice. The language of instruction is Yiddish with English translation. Tetyana (Tanya) Yakovleva is a Yiddish lecturer at the Yiddish Arts and Academics Association of North America (YAAANA) and a literature lecturer at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. She studied Comparative Literature, Classical, Slavic, Jewish, and Media Studies at Kharkiv, Regensburg, Bari, and San Diego universities. She received her PhD in Slavic and Jewish Studies from the University of Regensburg in 2019. Tanya is a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200) and sees her mission as bringing joy and equilibrium to people through the Mind-Body-Spirit connection.
