“I AM Yoga is an invitation for me to journey to become my best possible self. As an individual who has been all over the place in my fitness pursuit, I have found Yoga to be a gentle, unconditional place to be mindful of not only my body but of my whole self. The congruency of blending the physical, mental, and spiritual self is very beneficial to my body and nourishing to my soul!” — Laura
“Thank you for offering I AM Yoga. I am a more compassionate person and better husband and father because of it. Not to mention, my back doesn’t hurt anymore.” — Robin
First time? Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early, wear comfortable exercise clothing (nothing too baggy) and arrive on an empty stomach.

May 22-June 8: Yoga on Purpose: Summer Food Drive…Help Us CAN Hunger!
June 6: Wild Tree Tasting and Food Prep Workshop, 6 pm
Boundaries. Many scientists believe we are “hard-wired” to live in rhythmic awareness, to be in and then step out, to be engrossed an then detached, to work and then to rest. Just as God is the author of boundaries, we’ll discover how Jesus lived this out by establishing sacred rhythms of relationships, work and rest. We’re eager to welcome you to your mat this week!
As excited as we are to offer specialized classes like Chair Yoga and to bring back the Thursday morning 9:30 Yoga class, we must have at least 5 persons committed to continue these. If you are thinking about giving either class a try, just show up and get a taste of what Yoga is all about. You may be surprised it’s much more than you imagined, and available to everyone.
SUMMER FOOD DRIVE
HELP US CAN HUNGER!
Did you know that The Hunger Crisis in our area is more prevalent in the summer time when school is out and the children in our community do not have subsidized breakfast and lunch available to them at school? This is when our local food banks and pantry’s run low on supplies. The I AM Yoga community has a desire to get a JUMP START on this need. Luckily, I CAN help. Hopefully, YOU CAN help! And TOGETHER, WE ALL CAN HELP end hunger in our community.
The I AM Yoga community at Morning Star Church will be collecting food the weeks of May 22, 2017 – June 8, 2017.
We are asking for your donation of canned goods and prepared box dinners. Most needed items are:
Peanut Butter (regular sized plastic jars please), Jelly (in plastic jars please), Macaroni and cheese, Soup (kid friendly flavors), Canned Spaghetti w/Meatballs or Spaghettio’s, Canned Ravioli, Beef-A- Roni/Beef Stew, Chili, Individual Sized Breakfast Cereal, Vegetables in little plastic cups like the fruit cups. (Green Beans, Carrots, Corn), Breakfast Bars, Fruit cups (Peaches, Oranges, Fruit Cocktail, Pears), Individually Packaged Snacks (Cheez-It’s, Animal Crackers, Raisins, Fruit Snacks), Granola Bars, Juice Boxes, Hot Chocolate Packets, Ramen Noodles
All of the donations will be collected and delivered to the BACKPACK IMPACT which is an outreach ministry through Morning Star Church that works in partnership with Operation Food Search. Their mission is to end hunger in our area by providing meals for at-risk children over the weekend and during breaks when they are not in school.
