WHAT IS HOLY YOGA?(www.holyyoga.net)
Holy Yoga is a ministry centered entirely upon God. Their mission statement is summed up in Isaiah 55:11: “So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Holy Yoga is a yoga practice set apart for the worship of God and the exaltation of His son, Jesus. It is an exercise regimen that employs stretching, strengthening, balancing, and breathing along with scripture reading, prayer and contemplation on the word of God. Below is a synopsis of the beliefs of Holy Yoga and statements of practice. Please feel free to check out their website for additional information.
Interested in increasing strength, flexibility, and balance – all offered in an atmosphere of prayerful worship to our Lord? Join us for Holy Yoga on Tuesday mornings at 10:00AM in the church basement. Drop in and try out a complimentary class! Everyone is welcome so please feel free to bring a friend! Class sessions run for 12 weeks with interspersedweeks off (see schedule and fees below). You will need to bring a yoga mat (We do have a few to borrow.) and wear loose, comfortable clothing. A strap (old tie will do) is helpful but not absolutely necessary. Each class entails standing, seated, and floor poses. However, individuals who wish to stay seated will be able to modify all movements in order to do so. If you are interested and have questions, please call the church office @ 703.250.8033 or contact the instructor directly (see below).
