Selah

What is Selah?

Biblically defined as “pause”, “be still”, & “contemplate”, Selah is a reference point that helps us take time to reflect on the truth & rest in the goodness intended for our life. As an outreach ministry, the belief that there is rest in Jesus, as simply promised in God’s Word is reflected in a gentle and restorative format that is purposeful, safe and effective as an alternative to yoga. Classical, gentle and restorative formats are used and all fitness levels can participate. 

You can expect: 

  • floor matwork and standing balances
  • Posture & alignment work
  • Position holds exceed 5 breaths.
  • Restorative & gentle progression to bring warmth for deep muscle work
  • Modifications as needed
  • Prayer, scripture led meditation, devotional material reading
  • Stillness and surrender
  • a cell phone free environment
  • ages 16+
Gentle Strength, Restorative Stretch - an exercise class incorporating core muscle focus, body weight as resistance and deep warming/stretching in muscle groups well used by popular lifestyles such as sitting, running, cycling. This class begins with a  challenge to the cardiorespiratory system, joints and mindset. After the warmup, strengthening series build fiber and endurance by using the body's weight as resistance (very effective). Alignment, form and posture are integrated with a core musculature focus in the strengthening portion and the stretching. Restorative stretch techniques are used to heighten body awareness, bring stillness to the heart and mind, experience range of motion and breathing capacities.

Instructor: Hillary Thornton

Other services include scripture-led meditation & prayer, fitness nutrition coaching, outreach retreats and educational speaking
