“…be awake to the Life that is loving you and sing your prayer, laugh your prayer, dance your prayer, run and weep and sweat your prayer, breathe your prayer, be your prayer.” Alla Renee Bozarth

Every moment, every breath, every action, feeling and thought is imbued with the power of our needs and intentions. When we take to the mat for a yoga practice, we open our hearts and bodies to Grace and we circulate healing in our being through movement. Holding a pose draws us into the stillness of Divine Presence and our breath radiates Light to the world. During this retreat, we will use yoga poses and breathing practices to deeply feel our intentions in our bodies and to channel them into living prayer. Whether you prefer structured prayer or free-form, regardless of what name you call the Divine, your body can be the conduit of your prayer. Feel your prayer, inhabit your prayer, be your prayer. All ability levels are welcome. Bring your own mat and a notebook/journal and pen.

Faith makes all things possible, and love makes them easy. Faith in God is never out of season. Faith justifies the believer, but love justifies his faith by the works which it produces. Faith believes God to be true; love proves faith to be true.
- Charles H. Spurgeon
