We rise to embrace the mystery, wonder, and awe
Of all there is and that is yet to be”

     Toning Our Temple Yoga  
Yoga can connect us with our physical and internal energy centers, allowing breath to get in to nourish and inspire us on all levels.  Coming to a class is a great way to practice Autumn turning inward while in community gathering. A blessed opportunity most all needs practice with, being with others while staying connected to our deep, calm self. Especially since coming out of Covid isolation times. Laughter usually  happens here too!
This is a  gentle & accessible yoga practice for ALL Bodies!  
All levels and stiffness Welcome. 
Classes are lovingly sponsored by HUUF Fellowship Engagement program.
Suggested Donation of $10 per class welcome and gratefully accepted

Fellowship Happenings

  • Grounds Work Day: Saturday October 22 at 10am Join the fun as Valerie and this month’s “captain” Lynne Abels, head up the renovation of the far end of the RE garden. We’ll remove the plants and irrigation tubing, loosen up the soil, add planting mix, carefully place a very large boulder replant the plants and add more, then cap with sand. We may not be able to put the sand on that day, but it will follow shortly. Be a part of this exciting transformation! Your help is appreciated.
  • Beware the hackers! It’s happened again – Once more those savvy scammers have created an enticing email  phishing for their next victim! This one claims to be from “Reverend Emeritus Bryan Jessup (” the email appears that Bryan is asking for help with purchasing gift cards. Anyone who knows Bryan, knows he would never refer to himself in that way and would likely never ask for that kind of help! … But these emails are designed to fool you so please beware – Do not open it- Do not reply if you happen to receive a request that looks out of the norm. ** Any official email from HUUF will have an email address ending in
