Note: Faith & Flow Yoga is a wellness program that addresses mental, spiritual, and physical wellness by connecting your entire being, mind, body, and spirit with God. Surrender, Transformation and Discipline are the guiding principles used to build faith and to nourish the soul. Faith & Flow Yoga sets God as the intention and uses movement, focused breathing, and Christian meditation to reconnect your entire mind, body, and spirit with God through full body worship.
