In a Gesher Yoga a™? Meditation & Jewish Spirituality session, we begin with a pasuk (verse) of Torah (teaching), Ta€™fillah (prayer) or Middah (soul quality). Laura has been practicing yoga since the early 1990a€™s, beginning with a wonderful teacher, Hari Zandler, in a private home in Mt. Lauraa€™s personal meditation practice began in the attic of her family home on an old carpet swatch placed by a window, way back in Jr.
At Earth Spirit Yoga we provide an opportunity for personal change which allows for a potent and tangible insight into our own true capabilities and potential. We can access the part of ourselves that is free of doubt and fear and release an extraordinary force within that is omnipresent and capable of liberation and transformation. If you have the courage to blast through the shackles of your own mind and perception then join us in Peru and Bolivia. At Earth Spirit Yoga we have designed our retreats & expeditions integrating a multitude of powerful experiences to create focussed, profound and life changing journeys for all who want to a€?thrive and excela€™.
We have two decades of experience working with powerful high profile traditional spiritual leaders, wisdom keepers and medicine people and a decade of facilitating our Wisdom Keepers Retreats & Expeditions in South America. We have the skills, knowledge, wisdom and the necessary vital connections and relationships to offer a professional and complete service. Due to demand we have expanded our range of powerfully transformational retreats & expeditions in South America to meet the needs of our clients. With a decade of experience our ceremonies are extremely safe, well orchestrated and refined. Earth Spirit Yoga works exclusively with traditional native Medicine People with whom we have a long standing relationship. The benefits of meditation are vast and include everything from helping with insomnia to alleviating debilitating physical pain and even helping heal emotional trauma and anxiety. Doctors everywhere promote the idea of mindfulness and deep meditation to help you to become more centered. Ensuring that your body is getting the deep belly breathing and the continuous process of breathing is important for keeping your body functioning properly.
If you think you can’t meditate for whatever reason, just think about a time in your life when you were relaxed. That’s really the first step of meditation – accepting that you can and will find a place that is your escape, your place to go to get away from the stress and anxiety that life brings.

They carry the wisdom and power of an unbroken and impeccable lineage as the health and well being of clients is essential. The image that you have in your head of what meditation is may be wildly different than what it actually is. One of the parts of meditation that makes it so effective is that it helps you to really focus on your breathing. The challenge for most people is getting outside of their own heads and inner critic and fear that “they’re doing it wrong”. It could be on a vacation to the gulf coast of Florida while sitting on the beach, a quiet night at home reading a book by candlelight, or even last night when you got to go to bed early and got an amazing night’s sleep. It might take a little bit of extra focus and some practice to master your own art of meditation.

Her first experiences of yoga as a Jewish spiritual practice was through Pa€™nai Or Fellowship, a Jewish Renewal Community in Philadelphia a few years later. Her formal sitting practice began in 2005 through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, under the guidance of Rabbi Sheila Peltz Weinberg. Late evenings spent with the glow of raku kilns and a walk home in the dark with new raku vessels. It wasna€™t until she met Rabbi Myriam Klotz through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality however, (where Laura completed an 18 month in-depth spiritual leadership program for Teen Educators), that she began to truly understand the potential of combining the ancient wisdom of Judaism and Yoga. She receives ongoing support from Sheila and even though she might not realize it,A Sylvia Boorstein, who Laura had the pleasure of studying with at a 5 day silent meditation retreat co-facilitated by Sylvia and Sheila (a dynamic meditation duo!) Laura also had the honor of taking an online metta meditation class with Sylvia through Spirituality & Practice.
