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.
