Bobby and Alan Haras, Detroit-based yoga instructor and Ignatian spirituality guide, facilitated a half-day retreat at Sts. Peter and Paul Jesuit Parish in downtown Detroit. Realizing the enthusiasm and interest in the integration of these two traditions – Ignatian spirituality and yoga – Bobby and Alan teamed up to develop a weekend retreat program and co-founded Ignatian Yoga as an organization sponsored by the Midwest Province of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
