Health, Wellness, Fitness, and Faith Ministry

 Health, Wellness, Fitness, and Faith Ministry

The “Chair Yoga Class” has changed its name to “Sit & Gentle Stretch”. The “Yoga and Meditation Ministry” name has changed to “Health, Wellness, Fitness, and Faith Ministry.”  The name change creates an opportunity to expand the scope and vision of the ministry. Its focus will be on exercises that strengthen the mind, body, and soul. Also, improving your nutrition intake.

The “Sit & Gentle Stretch” class will be held every 3rd and 4th Saturday, 10:30 – 11:30 am, in the Center for Families.

Those who prefer to challenge themselves a bit more should come to the class held every Monday evening at 6:30 – 8:00 pm, in CFF.

To register for class, you can sign-up in the atrium with Deacon Earle Phillips, call the church office at 612-588-4709, or just show up.

Classes are free to everyone.

Our next deep stretching and cardiovascular class is Monday, January 29th at 6:30 PM. This class offers deep stretching exercises and a moderately challenging cardiovascular workout. You will improve your flexibility, strength, balance, stamina and overall physical and mental health.

Our "Sit & Gentle Stretch" class is the 3rd and 4th Saturday of the month at 10:30 AM. The majority of the poses in this class are done sitting in a chair. A few of the poses are done standing. Although this class is designed for Seniors and those with limited mobility it offers many benefits for improving your physical, mental and overall well-being.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in class. Please invite a friend or anyone interested in improving their physical and mental health.

Chair Yoga (Now Sit & Gentle Stretch) Class

The Deacon and Seniors ministries are launching a Chair Yoga class. Chair Yoga is a gentle, healthy alternative to traditional yoga for those with health challenges that limit their mobility and ability to stand for long periods of time. While this class is designed for Seniors, its health benefits are achievable by people of all ages and fitness levels. Practitioners experience an increase in energy, strength, flexibility, concentration, lower blood pressure, reduced stress, and many other health benefits. If you are interested in participating in this class you must consult with your doctor first. Completing a FMBC Liability Waiver form is also required.

The Chair Yoga class will be held each month on the third & fourth Saturdays, 10:30 - 11:30 am, in CFF. To register for the class you can sign-up in the atrium with Deacon Earle Phillips, Connie Rance, or Stephanie Maggitt or call the Church Office at 612-588-4709.

This class is free and the public is welcome to attend. Spread the word!

Yoga Trivia.....

"Working out at the gym strengthens your body. Yoga can help you prepare for a workout while also strengthening your mind. Practicing asanas clears and focuses your thoughts and helps harness your determination as it limbers you up. Your combined workout keeps you in balance, strengthening you both physically and mentally."


I  press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
