Join registered yoga teacher Heidi Green at Saint David’s Episcopal Church on Thursdays, Oct. 4-Dec. 13 for faith-integrated yoga classes designed for every body.

The following classes will be offered.

• 2-3 p.m., Gentle yoga. Bring your own mat.

• 3-4 p.m., Chair yoga. This class is seated on a chair with optional standing poses.

There is a $5 suggested donation for each class. All money donated will be given to local San Juan Island charities beginning in October with Safe San Juans and 36 Weekends.

Yogadevotion begins in the breath, centering ourselves and setting aside all that distracts from God. The class opens with scripture and devotion; it closes with a time of reflection and thanksgiving for God’s presence. In between, participants embody prayer in gentle, breath-centered movement to settle the body, calm the mind and nourish the spirit.

Instructor Green is a registered yoga teacher and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider. She is the co-author of “Yogadevotion: Practicing in the Presence.” A cancer survivor, Green knows firsthand the benefits of faith and breath-centered movement.
