Meditation & Yoga

jane-schmitt-head-shot-1016St. Mary’s offers Meditation & Yoga as Christian Spiritual Practice classes on two Tuesday evenings a month from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Parish Center at St. Mary’s Elementary School, 2 St. Mary’s Hill (Aurora and St. Joseph Streets). Click here for an upcoming schedule of classes.

Taught by certified yoga instructor Jane Schmitt, the classes incorporate prayer, meditation and music, complementing Christian spiritual practices. They are based on the teachings of Fr. Thomas Ryan, author of Prayer of Heart & Body.

The classes are free of charge; however, donations are accepted, with all proceeds going to the parish. Classes are multi-level, so they are geared towards everyone from beginners to more experienced yoga students. Students should bring their own yoga mats.

The classes are considered a form of moving prayer, and end with relaxation and meditation.
