With Pastor Lynn M Hayden
With over 50 years of dance experience behind her, Lynn has dedicated all her ballet, modern, jazz, and choreography technique to the Lord for His glory. She has performed with the Towson State University Dance Company, and the Ballet Theatre of Annapolis and and has been ministering, for the Lord, through dance, since 1986. Lynn is a well-known author of eight books on worship and prophetic dance, and producer of more than thirty worship dance DVD’s and administrates a successful on line ministry dance school. Lynn assisted the choreographer and danced in Integrity Hosanna’s music video “Sing Out” with Ron Kenoly; and has traveled, teaching Dancing For Him Conferences for over 20 years. As founder, director and administrator for the Dancing For Him ONLINE SCHOOL, Lynn is a gifted leader of leaders. Her graduates have grown substantially in their call to dance for the Lord. Many people mentored by Lynn, over the years, have successfully gone on to have their own dance teams, hold their own workshops, choreograph beautiful ministry dances and even write their own books. The school has enabled Lynn to perpetuate her legacy of transforming hearts and changing lives, through ministry dance. Many lives have been touched and changed by this unique, ministry. It is much more then just learning how to dance. Lynn utilizes the Prophetic arts as a means by which to minister the heart of God. Lynn also ministers in dance directly to the congregation with an anointing that breaks the yoke of bondage, heals and delivers!

PILATES/STRETCH WORKOUT (Wednesdays)
You'll definitely want to strengthen your body and improve your flexibility, for worship dance (or any physical activity) through these 18 basic exercises (45-50 minutes), then flow into a nice, relaxing deep stretching time to improve flexibility!
The benefits are wonderful and numerous. To name a few: Core strength is one of the most important benefits of doing Pilates exercise, because all movement emanates from the core. If the core is strong, the appendages can move without undue stress on the spine. A strong core also helps to improve balance and coordination. Pilates helps to strengthen opposing muscle groups. This leads to overall improved flexibility. The whole body functions more efficiently. And so much more...
This class will move right along from one exercise to the next, with explanations. No previous training required. All are welcome!
Note: If you have had no Pilates technique training, it is advised that you view/practice the Pilates Basic Preliminary alternative VIDEO/DVD to familiarize yourself with some basics.
