Yoga Time

I've recently started doing yoga down the street at Yoga District, and I was surprised at how easy it was to get back into classes. I'm looking forward to making time for not only the body work, but the inner work that happens when one practices yoga. We'll see if I can manage to make it a habit, but here's hoping.

Anyway, I wrote a reflection about my experience getting back into yoga classes, how the institutional church can learn from yoga studios, and the Millennial obsession with awkwardness for the Episcopal Diocese of Washington's blog. You can find it here.


  1. Hi Becky,

    I am a new Episcopalian (just celebrated my first anniversary of Baptism/Confirmation) and I was asked by my parish to serve on a committee as the millennial perspective. I proposed a "borrow-an-Episcopalian" welcome booth with people that are experienced in our liturgy to sit with new comers that are interested in some help. We haven't really done that officially but I have done it unofficially with two visitors on my pew.

    Our Easter mimosas went over really well. "You mean you all drink? At church functions?" (EDUSC is Baptist country)

    Anything working particularly well in Washington? It seems like the Compline service draws a lot of people that aren't regular attendees.


    1. Hey Joe! Congratulations on your one-year baptism anniversary. : ) Thanks for your comment. There are all sorts of things you can do that would be helpful to welcome young adults in to make things less awkward, but the only thing I can say for certain is that they have to be less awkward in your own specific context: your neighborhood, and your young adults. Some things that work in Washington might not work where you're at (South Carolina?) but then again, they might. Feel free to email me at vicarofhstreet@gmail.com, I'd love to continue this conversation. (Sorry for the late reply, I've been out at a conference and catching up on work.)

  2. Great blog, Becky. Once again, you are spot on!
