“FREE FAITH YOGA every Wednesdays at 5:30 - 6:30 PM.”

"Our Second Free Yoga Class is every Thursdays at 9:00 - 10:00 am"

FREE CHRISTIAN YOGA CLASSES will resume on January 8th.  The classes will continue to be on Wednesdays at 5:30 pm and Thursdays at 9:00 am.  The instructor will be Dixie Brillhart. 


Dixie is currently in the process of completing her 200-hour Christian Yoga Instructor training, provided through Christian Yoga Project.  She will be finished in March 2020.  Dixie has worked a combined 35 years in the Health care field, as a Medical Laboratory Technician and a Medical Assistant at Hanover Family Practice.  Dixie is also an artist and a member of Hanover Art Guild and Gallery; she is a volunteer at the Little Art Bank of Hanover. She teaches painting and mixed media art to several home school students via the Hanover Art Guild. She enjoys many forms of creative expression.  She and her Husband Fred share a passion for Christian Yoga.  They enjoy the benefits the practice provides, fellowship, strength, well-being, relaxation, and the spiritual awareness in prayerful meditation.


In case of bad weather, yoga classes will follow the South Western School District.  If the school district is closed, dismisses early or goes in late due to inclement weather there will be no class.
