Faith & Flow Yoga

Join us for all-levels Faith & Flow Yoga in the Chapel on Thursday afternoons at 2:00pm and Sunday afternoons at 4:00pm. The Thursday class is taught by Rev. Katherine Willis Pershey, and the Sunday class is taught by a rotation of certified teachers.

This one-hour class integrates teachings of yoga philosophy and Christian spirituality as the students are guided through a basic to moderate vinyasa sequence (a method of yoga in which movements form a flowing sequence in coordination with the breath).

Classes are open to individuals 13+. There is no charge for youth, and adults are encouraged to contribute $10/class to help cover program expenses.
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in and bring a mat if you have one; blocks, straps, and blankets will be provided.

If you have any questions regarding Faith & Flow Yoga or would like to be added to the Faith & Flow contact list, contact Katherine at katherine@wscongo.org.

Please note: People under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a program waiver.  Click here to access the program waiver.
