I STAND AGAINST RACIAL Discrimination and Violence

Pearls, not Pain . .

Moving toward Wisdom and Freedom

Creating a safe space to delve deeply and express fully through Aligned Yoga, Meditation, and Movement Classes, Private Sessions, Workshops and Retreats with Gail Rosenheim Gurewitz

During this intense time of continuing to shelter in place, I am offering Yoga classes on Zoom as a way to stay connected and keep moving our bodies in healthy ways together, with some additional encouragement and practices for staying calm and open during this unprecedented time in which we find ourselves.  

Over the past months and weeks, I have been blown open by joy and heartache, change and concern, trying to wake up, listen and learn, experiencing some glimmers of hope as we witness the rising of voices across the nation and world, so many of us no longer willing to tolerate the bias and discrimination that we have all inherited and even participated in, if only through lack of awareness as we live our lives.
In the midst of this, I am so grateful for community – YOU –  and practices that help me to stay (relatively) sane and balanced, to keep my heart open and continue to look at how and where I can give my heart, time, energy, and money towards necessary change. 

I hope you will join me for more yoga on Zoom, schedule below.

The Miracle of Light; A Yoga and Meditation Workshop honoring 
Hanukkah and the Winter Solstice 

Hanukkah celebrates the harvest of fire and the miracle of light. The candle we use to light the other 8 candles of the Hanukkah Menorah is called the shammash, or “sun”. It is symbolic of the eternal flame; the ever-renewed sun, which can seem to dwindle during the winter season yet always comes back, beginning its reentry on the winter solstice.
Please join us on the solstice, Dec. 21st, as we explore the dance of light and darkness through embodied practices of yoga, meditation, and movement. A great way to align body, heart, and mind with the essence of Hanukkah, leaving you feeling connected, fully alive, and calm.
Jewish Community Center of San Francisco
Saturday, December 21st, 2:30-4:30 pm

About Gail:

Movement has been a pivotal force in Gail’s life for as long as she can remember. As a young child, hours of dancing in her bedroom turned into a professional ballet career at 15, dancing internationally as a soloist with world-class ballet companies, including San Francisco Ballet, Ballet du Nord (in France), and Chicago City Ballet. Curiosity and injuries, which eventually ended her career, led her to discover meditation and yoga over 30 years ago. Three children later, a severe case of lyme disease prompted her to turn to yoga and expressive dance, both of which became essential components to her healing and recovery.

In 2007, Gail fell in love with Anusara Yoga. After a lifetime of movement frequently accompanied by physical pain, she had finally found a healthy, pain-free way to move deeply in every sense, through yoga’s principles of alignment that opened her body and profoundly touched her heart. She has trained extensively with Sianna Sherman and Abby Tucker (including others) since then and has taught yoga since 2009. Gail is passionately dedicated to helping others experience joy, freedom, and healing through movement.

In addition, Gail teaches a style of meditation that helps people to open their emotional bodies through music and guidance, which allows people to access and move toward deep connection, calm, and their true essence. She also teaches in Jewish centers and synagogues, offering Embodied Jewish Spiritual Practice, which cohesively weaves together gentle Yoga, Movement, Meditation and Jewish practices.
She views each pose or movement as an opportunity for connecting deeply with our hearts, learning from and transcending limitations, and offering our unique radiance and depth through physical expression. With an eye for alignment and dedication to Truth, she creates a safe place to challenge your body and align with your heart.
Gail offers private and public classes, workshops and retreats, and embodied Jewish spiritual practice.
