NEW TO THE CHAPEL! St. Bede is now offering two weekly yoga classes!
For those of you who are familiar with yoga, you know that yoga doesn't have a religion, but does incorporate meditation into its practice. For those of you unfamiliar with yoga, we can tell you how surprised we were to learn that this is a real workout! Yoga promotes strength and flexibility.
In the West we tend to de-emphasize the meditation part of yoga. Here at St. Bede's we will have a bit more meditation than is typical in the West at the beginning and the end of each session. Many of the principles of yoga are easily translatable into a Christian meditative context. Our meditations will draw on Scripture and other Christian and Jewish sources. Nevertheless, ALL students are welcome to join us, whether or not you have any religious affiliation at all.
On Sunday evenings, our Downward Dog Yoga class meets from 7:30-9:00pm (immediately following our evening student services!). This class is free to all UM and Miami-Dade students. Donations are most certainly welcome!
You can also join us on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM for a free "Christian Yoga" class! This yoga class features meditation with a Christian focus, and is open to all students.
