deep breath baking gathers inspiration from the jewish tradition of preparing a special bread, challah, for the weekly sabbath meal.  the workshop weaves in mindfulness practices to offer an experience with a simple, universal message: rest is in the recipe.

deep breath baking is for everyone, no matter your level of yoga, your baking experience, or your Jewish knowledge.  If you can breathe, you can benefit.
