At Christ Church, we encourage wellness on many levels: spiritual, emotional, and physical.
Yoga and exercise classes are offered at Christ Church throughout the year in partnership with Mona Flynn, CUMC member and owner of Life Fit, Inc. The spirituality of yoga in a church setting can be all the more restorative! To view all of Mona's classes, click here.
+ Simply Fit Exercise Class
Class includes warm-up marching, stretch/flexibility work, strength work, low-impact aerobic work, and balance work. Each minute of class is packed with exercises that are preventative in their orientation yet can be quite rehabilitative, too. We call this class “just enough and not too much” in its intensity level. The fellowship of the group is the real secret to the consistency of the members.
For more information or to register, contact Mona.

The labyrinth is a powerful tool for prayer and meditation used by early Christians as a way to symbolically journey to the Holy Land. Walking the singular, circuitous path to and from the center of the labyrinth has a calming and centering effect on the mind, body, and spirit. The Labyrinth Team, which meets quarterly, facilitates open labyrinth walks throughout the year and for groups upon request.
