Take a deep breath in . . .
I am the giant fish that swallowed Jonah . . .
and exhale slowly.
I am Miriam, the dancer.
Feel the stories of the Bible come to life within you.
I am the Tree of Life.
The Torah is called the Tree of Life. Just as a tree is always growing and changing, the Torah's ideas can help us grow and change, too. Yoga can do the same. Both can help us strengthen ourselves, calm our minds, and learn to appreciate the world around us.
Written by rabbi and certified yoga instructor Mychal Copeland, I Am the Tree of Life encourages us to explore both the world of yoga and the stories of the Bible and find meaning in both.
