The workshop was well-received. Some of the comments were: “Awesome!” “Re: prayer/yoga – it was wonderful! I really enjoyed and appreciated being able to do that.” “Thank you! I found myself & released some pain – Amen!” “My very first exposure to yoga of any sort!!” “Thank you – I particularly enjoyed the ‘yoga to music’.”
Here’s a link to the YouTube video of the yoga prayer. Please note that the intention of this flow practice is to embody prayer, not to have perfect alignment or to “get a workout,” although those might be side benefits!
Thanks to Central United Church staff, notably Spiritual Care Co-ordinator Lorraine Anderson, Pastor Michael Ward, Associate Pastor Wayne Lewry, and Administrator Colleen Robarts. And special gratitude to yoga teacher and IRest practitioner, Claudia Frick Istvanffy for taking part and helping to hold the space for participants.
