One Year Community Yoga Celebration

Our CCU Moderator, Valerie Jones, attended the one year celebration for the YOGA class which meets in our building.  This class is one of a number of offerings that makes up what we have come to call "Lowell Learns."

Lowell Learns is a way we offer our members activities that enrich their inner lives.  We also offer the the Lowell community an opportunity to come into our building and to take advantage of our "inner self enriching" classes.  The community gets to know us a bit better and we get to know them better.

Valerie's thoughts on the one year anniversary of the Lowell Learns Yoga class are below.

One Year Community Yoga Celebration 


Friday night September 29, 2017 there was a joyous celebration of community at Christ Church United in Lowell. It has been one year since Kimsokun Ket, better known as Kim, started
teaching community yoga free of charge supported by voluntary donations. I began yoga classes for the first time on week two. In the beginning it was difficult to perform the poses but with persistence in one year I am able to complete the flow of most moves. The healing affects of yoga physically and emotionally are priceless. Yoga helps to channel peace love and joy internally.

As changes occurred within so did the seasons. The warmer weather had us venture outdoors , "Yoga by the Sea" which attracted people to join into the community.  At the one year celebration Kim chose to showcase the many talents of the yogis. As we sweated next to each other, everyone of varying skill, we were unaware that we were in the presence of such extraordinary talent, such as life skill mastery, art, poetry, and music. Through Kimsokun's Vision of giving freely of her gifts to empower others she was able to add to her community and to ours. Friday night's one year celebration was alive with diversity and talents that filled our church with the laughter and love of a thriving community.  Come and join us at Christ Church United for community yoga on Thursdays at 6 PM for a life changing opportunity.
