Overview

Audi Gozlan, a certified yoga instructor and the founder of Kabalah Yoga, offers a book that fuses the practice of yoga with the ancient wisdom of Jewish mysticism, teaching you how to awaken the secret energy of each Hebrew letter in order to enliven your practice and experience the hidden powers of the universe.

There is an authentic need for spirituality in our lives—one that connects us with the sacred, something greater than ourselves, but that is also practical, touching the body and soul in deep and meaningful ways. While yoga offers us postures (or asanas), breathing, and meditation techniques, it may not always fulfill the deep desire for spiritual connection that has arisen. But when combined with the mystical tradition of Kabalah, it may be just the answer modern spiritual seekers are after.

Kabalah Yoga blends the movement and meditation of Hatha flow yoga with the ancient teachings of Kabalah, incorporating the wisdom of the Hebrew letters, also known as the Sacred Shapes, which are believed by Jewish mystics to be divine templates that contain the creative energy of the universe. This book describes the body, breath, and soul found within each of the Sacred Shapes, and shows that by moving your body into asanas based on each letter of the Hebrew alphabet and meditating on their meaning, you can unlock and embrace their great, empowering, and healing wisdom.

Kabalah Yoga brings a new form of awareness to the practice of yoga as a language of the soul, allowing you to journey deep within and discover yourself from the inside out, while tapping into the divine energy of each of the Sacred Shapes. With the explanations, insights, stories, meditations, and photographs in this book, you’ll enhance your practice and improve your life.

About the Author

Yoga instructor, artist, spiritual teacher, author, attorney, and television host Audi Gozlan, RYT, has been a student of Kabalah for most of his life. At ten years old, he met his root spiritual teacher, the revered Lubavitcher Rebbe, and began to study in schools that taught mysticism in Canada and in the United States. Meditation came soon after, and he started incorporating the teachings of Kabalah into the practice of breathing. Audi then embraced yoga flow which led to the founding of Kabalah Yoga, a system of hatha flow yoga that fuses the ancient wisdom of Kabalah with the practice of yoga flow. Gozlan has been practicing yoga for more than seventeen years, and is a Prana Vinyasa teacher, as well as an assistant to Shiva Rea. He is producer of three Kabalah Yoga DVDs, and host of two popular television series in Canada, including the Kabalah Yoga Show.

Movement is life for foreword writer Shiva Rea, MA, a Prana Vinyasa teacher, activist, and innovator in the evolution of vinyasa yoga around the world. She is known for offering the synthesis form of vinyasa flow, bringing the roots of yoga alive for modern practitioners in creative, dynamic, and life-transforming ways for more than twenty-five years. She is a pioneer in reviving the art of namaskar through diverse namaskars or salutations; developing wave-sequencing, three-part vinyasa for energetic alignment; integrating the creative, spontaneous movement known as “sahaja” in postmodern yoga; and much more.
