8 week series
This last year was far from perfect.
And if you’re like me, I know I didn’t handle things perfectly. I watched myself struggle to manage the high stress, fear, loss and limits and was uncomfortable having my imperfections exposed. But I heard a pastor say that the pandemic exposed what was already there. And I think he was right. My imperfections were always there, but the high pressure caused them to surface more obviously and more frequently. So what do we do with that?
- What if we embrace that we are works in progress – and believe that God uses all of our story?
- owning our stories
- seeing the gifts of our imperfections
- and allow God to transform us through an 8 week yoga series based on Brene Brown’s book “The Gifts of Imperfection.”
6am – 6:30a Soul Yoga Flow
+ 10 minute *Optional Guided Scripture Meditation
You don’t have to attend every class to participate!
Come as you are and when you can…. grace abounds here.
I can’t wait to flow and grow with you!
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it…
When we spend a lifetime trying to distance ourselves from the parts of our lives that don’t fit with who we think we’re supposed to be, we stand outside of our story and hustle for our worthiness by constantly performing, perfecting, pleasing and proving.
Our sense of worthiness – that critically important piece that gives us access to love and belonging – lives inside of our story.”The Gifts of Imperfection, p. 23
Let’s begin this year by bravely embracing our imperfect stories, claiming our worthiness in Christ, and allow God to love and transform us more into His likeness.
Blessings of whole-heated living,

I began practicing yoga nearly 20 years ago as a requirement for my high school dance team. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the combination of stretching, movement and breath. In 2017, I was introduced to Gospel-centered yoga at Soul Fitness’s Legacy of Love Retreat a year after my second child was born. This was a difficult season for me as I struggled with symptoms of weight gain, fatigue and depression due to undiagnosed postpartum hypothyroidism. I found that the practice of Soul yoga increased my energy, uplifted my mood and turned my heart towards the Lord. The integration of movement, breath and Scripture meditation began to heal my body and heart and in 2018 I became a certified 200 hour Holy Yoga Instructor and also completed leadership training.
For the past year I’ve taught Soul Yoga classes in person and online. As a stay-at-home mom, with limited free time, I love how the practice of Soul Yoga provides a workout, time in the Word, meditative prayer, full-body worship and stillness all in one hour. Joyful and fun in nature, I want you to leave class feeling inspired & re-connected with the One who created you.
I love music and work to create meaningful and fun playlists that tie to our Scripture/intention. All levels are welcome! I’d love to have you come and try!
Whether it’s your first time or you are a practiced yogi, I trust the Lord has something in store for you on your mat.
