Lenten Quiet Day
Embodying Loving-kindness:
Yoga and Prayer

Guided by
Ms. Marie Hurley Blair with
The Rev. Lynnsay A. Buehler and Ms. Lea Robinson, R.N., M.S.N.

Marie Hurley Blair is a lifelong learner.  Her formal education includes graduate degrees in ethics and library science.  When her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s thirteen years ago she turned to yoga, studying the mind-body connection and how breathing, meditation and gentle movement can ease pain and improve mood.  A 200 hour registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, she has received additional training in yoga for chronic pain, cancer and overall aging.  Mindful yoga—moving slowly into postures and noticing how the body and breath respond—is available to all bodies.  “If you can breathe, you can do yoga,” she assures newcomers.  Marie and Lynnsay share a deep friendship that began in college and has spanned four decades.  Their shared interest in seeking peace within, resting in the Beloved and growing in wholehearted living, led to this collaboration.  Marie will lead guided meditations; Lynnsay and Lea, a long-time facilitator with The Julian of Norwich Center, will offer guidance for times of contemplative prayer.  And Marie will lead a yoga class that may be enjoyed seated or on a mat.  Chairs and a few mats will be available.  Please bring your own mat if you have one.  All bodies are welcome.
