Have you ever wondered what happens to emotions that we try to repress? Very often, those unwanted feelings get stored in our bodies. This 20-minute Gentle class will not only help you release built-up stress in your shoulders, back, and hips, but also calm your mind. You will begin Theology of the Body: Stress Relief lying on your back, working on your breath and focusing on the blessings in your life. As you slowly move through the class, you will perform exercises on the mat that gently stretch and strengthen all the muscles in your body. To work a little harder, keep your core contracted and really engage your muscles as your work. The Scriptures and meditation paint a beautiful picture of God’s plan of spousal unity and its relationship to the Trinity.
