Pax Christi Yoga

Dear Yoga participants,
 
Pax Christi Yoga has been meeting continuously every Saturday at 9am for the last two and a half years. Our last class was May 10th, and we are now taking the summer off. We are going to change the schedule, beginning this fall, to meet during the Community Groups for the 6-8 week time period. 
 
Please join us again this fall and have a joyous summer in our beautiful city!  
 
Blessings to you all,
Janet Crawley

“…do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God?”

-I Corinthians 6:19 

Join us Saturday mornings at 9am!

What is Yoga and how is Pax Christi Yoga different?

Yoga is an ancient practice uniting the mind with the body, becoming a discipline of presence in each moment.

Though there are church leaders that have labeled yoga demonic, we think differently. In Pax Christi Yoga we use Christian scripture to focus our thoughts as we move and breathe and align with the inner world of the Holy Spirit.

We welcome all individuals to participate in this communion with God through the moving prayer of yoga.

“If we do not involve our bodies, …we may not be able to enter a true, attentive stillness because our posture frustrates it…The result is often a drowsy condition punctuated with ‘pins and needles’ and restlessness.  More than that, we remain inhibited in our self-expression….If in prayer we shut down all bodily gesture and movement and confine ourselves to a single position we cut in half our power to feel and own and express our devotion, our love and our needs…”

What should I bring?

Bring a yoga mat if you have one. We will have a few on hand in case you forget. There will also be a basket for you to donate if you feel so inclined.

What should I wear?

Sometimes, attending yoga for the first time can make you a bit anxious. But don’t worry! We’ll be focusing on being present in the moment, being calm and flexible. Wear something comfy but also fitted, as you don’t want your clothing to interfere with your yoga poses.

How much does it cost?
Nothing! It’s free. We consider this a worship experience for all interested in stretching their mind, body and spirit. We will have a donation basket if you’d like to contribute something, but no pressure.
