Yoga Series: Faith with a Twist
Sunday, August 29, 2021 , 10:00 am – 11:00 am
We will meet in the Brooks room weekly on Sundays in August at 10AM to practice asana and discuss the week’s readings. We will also include a movement based lectio divina practice drawn from the book “Holy Listening with Breath, Body, and the Spirit” by Whitney R. Simpson. We will have chairs, if needed, please bring all other supplies that you may need: mat, block, strap, etc.
The series is free of charge, but a freewill collection to support various charities that St. Paul’s is currently working with. Please feel free to come regardless of whether you have money to give. The practice will be conducted in a “follow the yogi” style without formal asana instruction. We hope that you join us on this movement and prayer exploration.
Using the book Faith with a Twist (FWAT) by the Rev. Hillary D. Raining and Amy Nobles Dolan as a guide for our journey, we will explore the intersectionality of Christian and Yogic beliefs. FWAT is a 30-day meditation, journal, reflection, and prayer guide that provides a simple yoga practice suitable for beginners and more advanced practitioners alike. The practice is fully illustrated and has modifications of every posture to create accessibility for those who have mobility challenges.
