Healing Plants and Herbs

Yoga - with Maria Paulson of St. Croix Valley Holy Yoga
*$10 per class or $15 for both classes, pay in person | *Please bring your own yoga mat and water bottle
Option 1 - Gentle Holy Yoga is a soft and slow exploration of postures and breath. Gentle does not mean easy. You can be challenged here! Great for beginners, or just as an opportunity to let God's grace in as you rest in Him. All levels welcome.
Option 2 - Holy Yoga Flow is a linking together of yoga poses and breathing. This is a basic yet challenging class. It's a bit faster paced than a gentle class, but allows for variations and modifications. All levels welcome.
Every class begins and ends with prayer. Music is played that centers around Jesus throughout the entire practice helping you to focus on Him. As we move through the postures, I will weave the Word Of God into the movements giving you a time to reflect, give thanks, and to be still.
