Welcome to Rooted Yoga with Cindy! Teaching Christ-centered yoga is another “hat” I wear when I’m not writing or speaking. Got questions? Here are some answers!
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. (Whatever our circumstances, 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 in a world of topsy-turvy politics.)
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. My Facebook page posts updates on weekly offerings. In-person classes are held at RiverTree Church in my hometown of Mitchell, SD. Online classes are also available weekly. Again, please check Facebook (and Instagram) for details or contact me if you’re not already a subscriber. Every Monday, you’ll get a brief update regarding what’s up with class!
How much does it cost?
Classes are donation-based. Please don’t let a lack of funds keep you from trying a class. Those who are able to donate are free to do so.
Please feel free to email or message me if you have questions or are interested. And with that, I’ll sign off the way I end each and every class…
May we part rooted in Christ,
so that we can experience the peace that Jesus offers,
both on and off the mat.
