“My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” ~ God
The Inn at Shattuck St. Mary’s Faribault, Mn
May 17-19, 2019
What : Join us at the beautiful retreat center, the Inn at Shattuck St. Mary’s, for a Yogadevotion certification immersion weekend. We will be diving deeply into how the philosophy of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, specifically the eight limbs of yoga for spiritual growth, and Christian theology interface: examining intersections, similarities and differences. We will apply what we learn in the class room, on our mats. Practicums will include faith-integrated Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, and Chair yoga with modifications for pre-existing conditions. Meditation, restorative work, and chanting from yoga and Christian contemplative traditions will be introduced and compared. This certification retreat will give participants the training and language to start a faith-integrated yoga class in their church or community and the knowledge to support and address students’ questions about yoga and faith in a manner that honors yoga as an experiential path of spiritual growth while affirming Christian faith.
Who : This retreat is for yoga teachers, pastors, and lay leaders. Registered yoga teachers may receive 20 contact Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Units for the weekend.
When : Friday May 17th, room check in 3 PM, classes begin at 4 PM through Sunday May 19, 1 PM (The weekend following the Festival of Homiletics at Luther Seminary in Minneapolis.)
