“They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:8
When Lindsay was freshly transplanted to Lincoln after living abroad, God rooted her into the nourishing river that is Studio 4:8. In those waters, she finds love, grace, connection, peace, and an entirely new outlook on yoga.
At Studio 4:8, yoga is a joyful exploration of God’s greatest, most majestic creation: the human body, “fearfully and wonderfully made” in His image. The poet Percy Shelley said, “Poetry lifts the veil on the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar.” Like poetry, yoga “lifts the veil” on the mundane familiarity of our bodies and invites us to explore them as a wondrous work of God.
Lindsay’s Thursday evening restorative class invites us to bathe our body, our spirit, and our breath in His love. This is the ultimate restorative practice: unearthing God’s love, grace, and peace within, so that we can bring it with us out into our fallen world.
