Holy Yoga

Join us for gentle movement and meditation with Holy Yoga at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, Moorhead, Minnesota.

Beginning June 1, we will meet from 6 to 7 pm Tuesdays outside, on the East Lawn. (In case of inclement weather, class will be canceled.)

Holy Yoga is a form of experiential worship, a spiritual practice that offers women and men an opportunity to connect with God through scripture, meditation and movement.

We gather in community to slow down, loosen up and listen to what God is saying to each of us. Everyone is encouraged to move at his or her own pace … even if that means simply sitting still.

What to bring

  • Your registration forms
  • A mat
  • Blocks/blanket/strap, if you have them
  • Suggested freewill offering of $5-10 per session.

A little bit about Holy Yoga

In Holy Yoga, we often say, “It isn’t about the yoga.” What we mean is, getting really good at yoga is not our end goal — although that sometimes happens too. Instead, we use yoga as a spiritual practice, like prayer, fasting or meditation. 

We also say, “If you can breathe, you can do yoga.” Classes feature gentle movement and meditation, for men and women. You are welcome to move at your own pace and intensity.

A basic yoga postures booklet is available here.

If you can breathe, you can do yoga.

My yoga background

I have been practicing yoga in one form or another since 1997. After completing yoga instructor training with Holy Yoga Global in 2018, I brought Holy Yoga to Columbia Presbyterian Church, Vancouver, Washington, as a “missional experiment” and led it with help from my friend Nancy Anderson and support from our Huddle. 

My family moved back to Moorhead — my hometown — in 2020. (I attended preschool at the old Good Shepherd!) I am excited to begin sharing Holy Yoga here.
