I was so tired when I walked into the room last night, but certainly was energized at the end of your session

Some Christians perceive yoga as something that goes up against their religious practices, but New Dawn Yoga of San Francisco believes this is not the case. In fact, the practice of yoga can make people of faith even better Christians and actually support the prayer and contemplation that are modeled after the teachings in the Bible. To provide an experience of this support for Christians, New Dawn will be hosting the Christian Yoga Series, beginning September 27 and running for six Tuesdays from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. at the Mercy Center in Burlingame.
Yoga is a science of consciousness that supports the practitioner’s own chosen religion with practices designed to shift awareness from the body and the world to internalization, linking with “the peace which passes understanding.”
The class will be emphasizing body and breath-centered yoga practices using Bible scriptures as the theme. The “Dawn” of New Dawn Yoga, Dawn Summers, sets the intention with scripture, doing postures and movements to bring more integrity and ease to the body, and then redirects attention to stillness and contemplation. This yoga is easily accessible for those who have never practiced as Dawn skillfully adapts the practices to the level of the students attending classes.
Kay said of Dawn, “You are such a competent teacher - I enjoy all aspects of the class from the readings to the Christian chant, to the workout, just hearing your quiet, calm ‘teacher voice.’”
Another client, Ann, said “I was so tired when I walked into the room last night, but certainly was energized at the end of your session.”
