Breathe in Yah Breathe out Weh
Let Us Grow In the
andKnowledge of God
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit,
who is in you, whom you have received from God? 1 Corinthians 6:19
practicing yoga poses and breathing techniques you create stillness and
peace in body, mind and spirit. By releasing stress and tension
you deeply rejuvenate and refresh yourself inviting the Holy
Spirit. From this state of deep serenity you can absorb into the
greatest commandment "to love God with all your heart, with all your
soul and with all your mind". Matthew 22:37
"Yoga with Greta Ronningen is an inspiration and
a lifesaver. In other words, it is both physical and spiritual at
the same time. It brings health and peace."
Rev. Canon Malcolm Boyd
Greta has been practicing and teaching yoga for
over 30 years. She co-founded Yoga Works and Yoga Zone with
Yogiraj Alan Finger, one of the preeminent teachers in the U.S.
Her knowledge of yoga lineages lends to her ability to teach the
beginner to the advanced. Greta is a Chaplain for PRISM
Restorative Justice - Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles ministering in
jails and hospitals.

Photo of the Week
you know that our own Jen Wagner is in training to walk the three day
60 mile Susan G. Komen marathon in the fight for breast cancer? The walk
is scheduled for November 20-22, 2009 in San Diego. Jen is determined
to raise $4600.00 by then. She has already achieved $2980.50. Part of
that was raised at a family yard sale this past weekend.
This is a picture of Jen's daughter Allison selling lemonade at the yard sale to help with the fundraising.
|May your summer continue to be filled with times of rest and occasions for restoration!
