*We are behind the Dunkin Donuts on LaGrange, between St. Francis Road and Lincoln Way Lane. This is just north of Alsip Nursery and Lincoln Way East High School.

This workshop is open to adults ages 18+ and no prior experience is required. Attendees should wear casual clothing that allows for movement; an exercise mat is recommended.  

What is Christian Yoga?

Christian Yoga is similar to traditional forms of Yoga in that is uses different positions, movements and breathing to promote physical fitness in the body. However, instead of incorporating elements from eastern worldviews and religions, Christian Yoga is rooted firmly in Scripture and is focused on connecting our entire being, body, mind and spirit with God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

While practicing Christian Yoga, we set our minds on on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy (Phil 4:8), rather than emptying our minds. We meditate on the wisdom of God’s Word (Psalm 119:9-16, 26-27), not on man’s wisdom. We seek the transcendence and glory of God, not our own. The purpose of Holy Yoga is to facilitate a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non-believers alike to authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. 


This workshop is part of Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts’ Adult Class program. You are welcome to pre-register or drop in on the day of the workshop. The cost is $15.
