Move and meditate to the season of Lent Sunday evenings with the Yoga Chaplains of Lynn Valley United Church. All sessions will be in person.
Yoga Chapel affirms the wisdom that lives within the sacred stories of every culture, tradition, and generation. Our world would be barren without diversity of thought and expression. As the spirit of each faith tradition is shared through its own storytellers, we endeavor to be just one of the voices seeking to illuminate the Christian story for modern listeners.
Reflections inspired by the stories of the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament are woven throughout each asana practice. We meditate with the help of our bodies in stillness while balancing in a pose, and as we flow in movement. Whether you consider Biblical stories to be factual, metaphorical, or mythological, we believe they carry universal truths that can challenge, nourish, and enlighten.
We believe in nurturing spirituality holistically – intellectually, emotionally, and physically – and the practice of listening to Biblical reflections while flowing with our breath and our bodies helps our meditation to deepen. The ultimate calling is to move beyond the mat, embodying the stories of compassion and transformation in our everyday lives.
