Christ focused Yoga is an experiential worship created to lead students through a sacred and safe God-focused practice to deepen and enhance our connection to Christ through movement, breath and prayer.
Root Down to Rise Up is a beginners class to set the foundation for building confidence in a healthy and healing yoga practice. Students are encouraged to develop their awareness by connecting breath, with gentle exercises, while noticing thoughts and feelings as they arise in the physical practice. Weaved throughout the class will be Christ centered themes and scripture that can aid participants in connecting with their bodies and mind in a prayerful manner. It is in this inner stillness that one can sweetly experience the presence of God and the movement of the Holy Spirit within the heart and mind. The restorative aspect of the practice introduces gently held floor poses that can induce a meditative and prayerful calm renewing the physical body in His presence.
Gain skills. Gain confidence. This class is appropriate for all healthy and healing beginners.
