Fall 2017 Classes


Prayerful Yoga

MPLS: Sun 10/1, 6:30-8:30pm, Room 482-86

Photograph: Debra Mcclinton/Getty ImagesPrayerful Yoga emphasizes synergies between our Christian faith and yoga principles. Through biblical devotions and guided yoga practice, Liz Otteson and Rachel Kamin help answer the question, “How can my yoga practice enrich my walk with Christ?”  In October we will focus on Yin Yoga's slow, gentle stretching as a means to "Be still and know that I am God."  

Cost: $10.   Bring a mat and a blanket.
Space is limited.  Registration required to reserve your spot.
