Saint David’s Episcopal Church invites you to join registered yoga teacher Heidi Green in the church sanctuary on Thursdays, October 4 – December 13 for faith-integrated yoga classes designed for EVERY body.

Two classes are offered: 2-3 p.m. Gentle Yoga – Please bring your own mat; 3-4 p.m. Chair Yoga – This class is seated on a chair with optional standing poses. There is a $5 suggested donation for each class.  All money donated will be given to local San Juan Island charities beginning in October with Safe San Juans and 36 Weekends.

Yogadevotion begins in the breath, centering ourselves and setting aside all that distracts us from God. The class opens with scripture and devotion; it closes with a time of reflection and thanksgiving for God’s Presence in our lives. In between, participants embody prayer in gentle, breath-centered movement to settle the body, calm the mind, and nourish the spirit.

Instructor Heidi Green is a registered yoga teacher and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider.  She is the co-author of Yogadevotion: Practicing in the Presence.  A cancer survivor, Heidi knows firsthand the benefits of faith and breath-centered movement.

For more information, contact the church office at 360-378-5360. Saint David’s Church is located at the corner of Park and Marguerite in Friday Harbor.
