HOLY YOGA WINTER CANCELLATION POLICY: With winter weather starting it has been discussed on what days Yoga should be cancelled. If the Byron Center Public Schools close for a snow day, there will be no Yoga. Please keep this in mind as we may not have time to send out reminders on those days. Remember to check your local television stations and if they announce there is no school that day for Byron Center Public Schools, there will be no Chair or Holy Yoga at BCUMC that night.
Byron Center United Methodist Church offers four Holy Yoga Classes FREE! Donations will be accepted but are not required. The classes are held on Monday and Wednesday nights!!
