What exactly is Christ-centered yoga?
The answer could be a book of its own but let’s keep it simple. Its yoga centered around Christ! Seriously, the focus of class is based on a scripture from the Bible. Each session begins with an emphasis on one particular Scripture, and then that theme is incorporated throughout the entire class. Below are a few examples:
We can go to Christ when we are weary–– based on Matthew 11:28. (Help for when we’re physically and/or emotionally worn.)
God will help with our anxiety–– based on Psalm 94:19. (Pandemic or no pandemic, it is good to know where to take our worries.)
Jesus is King of Kings–– based on 1 Timothy 6:14-15. (A timeless truth to focus on during an election.)
We are fearfully and wonderfully made–– based on Psalm 139:13-14. (A reminder of what God has given us and our call to be stewards of the generous gift of our bodies.)
Why would I want to do yoga?
Yoga is a beautiful way to combine care of our physical selves with the care of our spiritual selves. It can be hard to balance both. For myself, it often felt like my daily routine would allow one or the other. Yoga allows time and attention for both.
When and where can I take a class?
Classes are offered twice a week. Rooted Yoga with Cindy’s Facebook page posts updates on weekly offerings. In-person classes are held at the Mitchell Wesleyan Church. Online classes are also available, as announced. Again, please check the Facebook page for details.
How much does it cost?
There is no cost for those who are not in a position to donate. If able, $5 to $10 donations are gratefully received. (Funds are used to purchase props & equipment, mats for those who do not have their own, as well as administrative costs like liability insurance and ongoing accreditation.)
