Acts 17:28, “In Christ we move and breathe and have our being.”
Yoga Chapel with Rev. Lenora Rousseau is a Christ-centered practice of reclaiming our connection to God, oursevles, and others through Scripture-based meditation, breath, and movement. Come as you are. Experience the movement of God in your life and be renewed in body, mind, heart, and spirit. (All levels welcome. For ages 14 and above.)
Slow Flow Yoga Worship experience is a full-body, all levels, mat-based practice that incorporates common Yoga poses and sequences that assume moderate accessibility. If you have accessibility considerations of any kind, please adapt the movement to work for your body and avoid any postures that may cause harm.*
Yin Yoga Worship experience is a gentle, reflective mat-based Yoga practice that incorporates common Yoga postures that are held for 2-5 minutes. If you have accessibility considerations of any kind, please adapt the movement to work for you and avoid any postures that may cause harm.*
*By joining us in-person or live online for Yoga Church, you agree with your presence to participate in accordance to the following liabity disclosure and waiver:
I understand that the Yoga Church Worship Leaders, other representatives, or guest Yoga Church Worship leaders are not physicians/clinicians and cannot treat, diagnose, or cure any disease, condition, illness, or injury. In all cases, Participants should join Yoga Church services with approval from a trusted medical professional and should always follow their doctor’s advice. In addition, Participants should always be mindful of their own limitations and modify or avoid any movements that might cause pain or injury. Participants take full responsibility for their own health and any illness or injury that may occur while participating in Yoga Church services and any other offerings of Pointe of Grace Project.

"So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for [God]. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out." Romans 12:1-2, The Message
The Point(e) of Yoga Chapel is to be a community that honors God, humanity, and creation with our whole being and lives into the essence of Romans 12:1-2 with authenticity and integrity in non-violent ways that lead to greater wholeness.
If this sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, we would love for you to join us!
