Yoga Instruction

As a long-time yoga practitioner and 500-hour certified yoga instructor, Hillary also teaches yoga and meditation several times a week in a class that is free and open to the whole community. She practices and teaches primarily in the Ashtanga system of yoga which blends energetic postures with deep intentionality to help aid in prayer and holy living. 



Certified Daring Way Facilitator

Hillary is also a Certified Daring Way Facilitator (CDWF), having trained with Brené Brown and her team in February 2015. She incorporates researcher Brené Brown's work on vulnerability and wholeheartedness into preaching, teaching, and pastoral counseling, and lead series based on the Daring Way. This work parallels Christians' call to practice radical discipleship and love God, neighbor, and self.
