As the week begins, we center ourselves in the sacred with simple yoga and prayer in our candlelit sanctuary. All are welcome to share in the movements of the body and spirit. Bring a mat, or use one of ours.

Our yoga leader Sunday evenings is one of our priests, Diana Gustafson. Diana is a RYT 500 who received her training in the Washington area. She has received two 200 hour certifications, with Gopi Kinnicutt at Bhakti Yoga DC and with Shannon Sharma at One Aum. She studied with Gopi to receive further training in Bhakti Flow (500 hour) and with Maria Garre for training in Prana Flow (500 hour). She is also a meditation student of John Churchill in the Mahayana and Mahamudra traditions. Email Mother Diana.

 

Thursday Mornings at 10 a.m.

These 75-minute yoga classes are held in our lower level parish hall. A $15 fee is requested. If the fee is in any way a barrier, please speak with the instructor to arrange a discounted rate. Please bring your own yoga mat and any other equipment like blocks and straps that you may wish to use.

Our instructor on Thursday mornings is Margaret Brozen, RYT 500. Her training has included 200 hours with Yogiraj, Alan Finger (ISHTA @ Thrive), and 300 hours with Susan Bowen (Thrive). She has also completed certificates in Reiki 1 and Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans Coping with Trauma. Margaret says you don't have to be a guru, gymnast, or a tight rope walker to practice yoga. It's about discovering your body and your breath and connecting the two. Her classes are informative, invigorating, relaxing and fun. She loves guiding the asana (postures) portion of the class that teaches flexibility, strength, and balance, while also allowing time for each student to go as deep as she or he wants in mindful inquiry, recognizing old patterns that are no longer useful, and helping them to realize they are pretty darn miraculous.

For questions regarding Thursday yoga, email Margaret Brozen.
