What is Root and Flourish?

At Root and Flourish, my desire is to create space for others to deepen their relationship with God, receive healing in their body/mind/spirit, and encounter authentic community.  I believe the practice of Holy Yoga Is a beautiful way to offer all of these things.

 

I have studied the Bible for a long time, but have learned in more recent years that meditating on God's Word is different than just reading it.  When you meditate on the Word, it somehow begins to become part of you...and begins to transform how you think, feel and act.  Scripture promises us that we will flourish and bear fruit when we are deeply rooted in His Word and in His love.  

Yoga has long been known to offer many benefits, such as:  improving muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and circulation; building strength in joints, ligaments and tendons; pain management; reduction in stress, anxiety and depression; assistance in overcoming the affects of trauma; improving memory and concentration.

 

The practice of Holy Yoga offers these physical benefits as well, but it is also a beautiful way to integrate meditating on God's Word with movement of the body and breath.   This Yoga experience is a time of worship, praise, and connection to Christ practiced to contemporary and motivational Christian music.  It is an experience that teaches us to take time to love, nurture, accept, heal and grow ourselves in His Word and in His Spirit.  All levels from beginners to advanced yoga practitioners are welcome.  

Come join me for a yoga class, bible study or a retreat...we aren't meant to make this journey all on our own.  When we come together with other believers to worship and root ourselves in His Word, something beautiful happens!

PRAY LIKE THIS

Beginning September 17th

Student Auditorium at 2|42 Brighton

Are you ready to return to in person community centered around

the Word of God?

Join me Friday mornings after Holy Yoga!

Pray Like This: Christ’s Guide to Praying the Scriptures is an 8-week study that "aims to mine the riches of The Lord’s Prayer one line at a time, drawing us nearer to the foot of the cross, while shaping the way we pray and commune with God. Each week includes space for reflection and an application sheet with guided prayers." 

It will "encourage and challenge you to push past any assumptions you hold about the Lord’s Prayer, and allow Jesus to open your eyes to new and beautiful riches in His Word. Let it shape the way you talk to God, as you learn to pray the Scriptures."

Let me know you are interested by cliking the link below.  Order your book and complete the introduction and Part 1 readings prior to our first meeting on September 17th.  We will not meet on October 22 or November 5.
