The Spirit of meditation in movement
Yoga Chapel weaves together the art of Christian reflection with the wisdom of the yoga practice. Yoga Chapel at Camp Hill UMC offers a level one vinyasa flow class with modifications when needed. All are invited and encouraged to participate!
Through a morning practice of the Ashtanga yoga sequence following her devotional time, Kristin discovered the beautifully meditative aspect of yoga as a pathway to a deepening relationship with Christ. Combining breath and Scripture, movement and prayer with mindful awareness of God’s presence, Kristin enjoys yoga as a spiritual discipline. She loves sharing prayer yoga with her community as a fresh and creative way to live out God’s call to share His light and truth with the world.

Rev. Anna Layman Knox
Born in Central Pennsylvania, after moving nineteen times since high school, Anna has returned to serve God in the same community where her life began. She is grateful to share this precious life with her spouse and partner-in-life, Simon, and their son, Dominic.
Prior to serving as a pastor for more than 3 years in South Africa, Anna Layman Knox earned her Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from Carleton College in Northfield, MN and her Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC. She became an ordained Elder in the Susquehanna Conference of the United Methodist Church in 2014 and currently serves as Lead Associate Pastor of Camp Hill United Methodist Church. While Anna had practiced yoga off and on over the years, her love of meditation and movement was cultivated during the 4 years she served as a pastor in the beautiful Pocono community of Hawley, PA. Attending Roots Yoga Studio became a sabbath ritual that sustained and nurtured her faith and her body. Upon arriving in Camp Hill, she discovered that others in the wider community also craved the opportunity to engage in prayer through movement and meditation. For Anna, sharing yoga is a transformational way to interpret scripture and live its story through the fullness of our bodies, minds, and spirits. She is Level-One trained through YogaFit and is currently pursuing her 200-Hour certification, while offering experiences for people in and beyond the traditional church to experience worshipping God through yoga.
Anna is passionate about listening, exploring the unknown, authenticity, and Five Roses tea with milk and sugar. She loves the challenge and joy of walking alongside others, and at any given moment in the day, you’ll probably catch her singing.
