“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"

Christian Yoga classes at St. Bartholomew’s are offered at no cost – we just ask that you bring a yoga mat, (optional) yoga block or blanket and come dressed comfortably in layers. The one-hour class is a time to release tension and distractions so that we can explore the healing practice of yoga, deepen our faith, and rest in the peace that was so freely given to us. Each class is infused with scripture and Christ-centered meditations. Classes are tailored to all ability levels and different seasons in life.

For in Him we live and move and have our being.   Acts 17:28”
