Celebrate the International Day of Yoga with a Free Yoga Class

Celebrate the International Day of Yoga with a Free Yoga Class

In 2014, the United Nations adopted an International Day of Yoga to be celebrated every year on the Summer Solstice, June 21, which is the longest day of the year.  To honor this year’s International Day of Yoga, church member and registered yoga instructor Liz Stubbs is offering free yoga classes on June 20 and June 21 for both new and existing students.

Using a holistic approach, yoga links breath with movement, bringing a sense of calm to the mind, and allowing for awareness of the body and how it moves.  Some of the many benefits of yoga include reduced stress and anxiety, improved flexibility and balance, and chronic pain reduction.

We offer Yoga at FUMC Allen because the practice provides a source of community and fellowship where everyone is welcome, regardless of body size or shape, race, gender, belief, or physical ability.

Liz teaches two types on yoga classes: Gentle Yoga Flow and Chair Yoga.

  • Gentle Yoga Flow is offered Mondays at 9:15am and Tuesdays at 6:00pm.  Participants should be able to get up and down off of the floor.
  • Chair Yoga, offered on Mondays at 10:45am, is for anyone requiring assistance with poses by using a chair for support and balance.

Both classes are taught in the Youth Activity Center on the second floor of the church.
