Sacred Yoga

When: Tuesday from 7:00 p.m., starting May 2, 2017

Yoga at Holy Innocents Episcopal is a multi-faith practice accessible to all levels from novice to advanced. It is a space for ALL individuals to gather in community and connect with the body, mind, and spirit. The class is held every Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the sacred space of the sanctuary which was constructed in 1890. This class has a suggested donation of $10-$15 though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you can afford to give, do so, so that we may offer yoga to those who can not. The space we create each week is one of love, acceptance, and non-judgement. Come as you are, come with family and friends and come often as we strive together to be a vibrant, connected and strong community of people. Yoga at Holy Innocents is led by San Francisco-based Yoga Teacher and Curative Yoga Specialist John McLean Wolff.

What to bring: yoga mat if you have one, blanket if you think you might need one – we gladly accept any donation of yoga equipment (blocks & straps)

About the teacher:

from http://www.john.yoga/

John found yoga after spending many years searching for inner-peace in the outside world. He believes firmly that there is a yoga practice to benefit every type of body and every frame of mind.

“I did not come to yoga because I was flexible, strong, disciplined, or serene. But through dedicated practice, I found those qualities and so much more. I say this from the bottom of my heart: yoga did not just enrich my life, it saved it!

So, come! Be curious; be open; be courageous; and be yourself. I call you specifically who feels that you don’t know what it means to be those things. Bring what you know to be true of you, and stay to find out the rest!”

John is an advanced RYT-500 Yoga Teacher, Holistic Coach/Curative Yoga Specialist, Group Facilitator and Community Builder. He possesses certifications in Traditional Thai Yoga Bodywork, Chakra Yoga Therapy, and the Purusha Method to work with at-risk and marginalized populations.

John’s firm belief in the effectivity of Therapeutic Yoga as complementary health care stems from his own experience and recovery from trauma. John is passionate about wellness, community building, and non-profit work. He serves on the board of directors of the Purusha Seva Project.

He gives thanks to Joy Ravelli & Eric Sparks and the rest of the phenomenal team at Purusha Yoga of San Francisco for their masterful teachings and loving guidance; to Vanessa Racinet for inspiring his passion; and to his extraordinary family for their limitless love and constant wonder.
