The Oy Way – Following the path of most resistance from the “Oy Way Master”, Khaym Leyb, aka Harvey Gotliffe, PhD. His heartfelt and funny book is a modern classic. The title says it all and is close to our hearts here at the Jewish Yoga Network: “Learn Yiddish expressions whilst engaging in a restorative, meditative, moving exercise experience”. What more could we ask for?
Harvey Gotliffe creates a beautiful experience through his book: introducing the yiddish language in a way that connects it with breath and movement. The photographs were primarily shot at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, and the handy-sized volume provides a lovely way to connect with the mameloshn.
This is certainly inspiring me to learn more yiddish. The journey of a 1000 miles need not be a such shlep after all.
