Julie Emden

Julie Emden directs the Embodied Jewish Learning Initiative at Jewish LearningWorks in San Francisco. A graduate of five fellowship and teaching certification programs related to her work as a Jewish educator, Iyengar-based yoga instructor and movement/expressive artist, Julie has nineteen years of experience guiding others in exploring Jewish wisdom, text and practices via the body in a variety of settings. Embodied Jewish Learning offers an alternative point of connection to Jewish life through classes, workshops and teacher trainings in experiential body-based text study. With a bold, holistic approach, we provide yoga teachers with best practices for integrating Jewish wisdom into their classes, educators with best practices for integrating movement into their programs, and we provide spiritual seekers, yogis, dancers and learners with access to Jewish wisdom that is meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives.
