Southfield (CW50) – Holy Yoga Detroit is different from your average yoga class. The difference is in the name “Holy” Yoga. Each class incorporates scripture into the daily program in order to further the spirituality part of yoga.

On this week’s COMMUNITY CONNECT, Lisa Germani sat down with Myreya Amezcua to talk about what programs Holy Yoga Detroit offers.

Yoga has both physical and mental experiences. Not everyone can experience the mental aspect of yoga. Yoga will help you strengthen your body, where the mental/spirituality part is obtainable through connecting with yourself through the spirituality of yoga.

Holy Yoga Detroit’s instructors are trained not only in the practice of yoga, but are taught how to incorporate bible versus into the class to help students spiritually connect with God.
