{Inhale} I will lean  {Exhale}  into Your love.

2019-02-25T16:33:37+00:00

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love is constant. Psalm 107:1 I love roller coasters and water parks and I’m usually up for anything...except when it comes to rides that drop straight down.  Maybe you’ve ridden the Tower of Terror at Disney’s California Adventure or the Tower of Doom at Elitches. I don’t ride these rides because I find no fun in having the floor drop out from under me, thank you very much. But a few years ago, we were at Great Wolf Lodge where I was peer pressured by my 7 and 11-year-old to ride [...]

Namaste & Dei

2019-02-06T20:05:38+00:00

As a follower of Christ, I have spent much time in study and prayer over my yoga practice.  I have sought the counsel of my pastor, my elders, my accountability group, and my husband. I have not glazed over the controversy that surrounds Christians practicing yoga.  I have put my love of yoga on the altar of God for him to take from me if it did not bring him Glory. Instead, what I have found is that God has given me innumerable opportunities to talk about the Love of God, which is Christ, from my yoga mat.  He has shown [...]

Yoga, Epiphany, & the Ajna Chakra

2019-01-22T14:57:55+00:00

  What do the practice of yoga, ajna chakra, and the season of Epiphany have in common? The mystery of revelation. During the season of Epiphany, Christians celebrate the revelation of Jesus as Messiah to the world. The God of the Bible is a God who reveals himself through his people, through his Word, and throughout Creation!  I love this season because it emphasizes the big-ness of God, and reminds me that I worship a God who desires to be known by all of humanity. One of my favorite illustrations of God revealing himself to the world is the story of the wise [...]

Meditation and Prayer

2019-02-11T18:35:27+00:00

  Prayer is a huge part of the Catholic church. There are a ton of prayer practices that are recognized by the Church such asking a saint to intercede, praying a rosary, saying a novena, etc. The entire liturgical celebration is in itself a prayer. But what exactly does it mean to pray? The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) says, “Whether prayer is expressed in words or gestures, it is the whole man who prays. But in naming the source of prayer, Scripture speaks sometimes of the soul or the spirit, but most often of the heart (more than a thousand times)” (CCC [...]

Are You Lonesome Tonight?

2019-02-19T13:23:46+00:00

 “And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 I have this problem. Until now, I have been completely unaware of it. Here is the thing...I get up early and read my bible. Every single morning. I pray. I journal. My day begins about an hour later. The day goes on. I talk to Jesus. A lot. I talk about Jesus. A lot. But, there is something I have discovered. I don't like to be alone. Ever. Really. Like, ever ever ever ehhhhhhhhverrr. It is kind of a joke in my family. If my husband goes out of town, I have it all lined [...]

Where is Your Focus? The Transformation of My Yoga Practice….

2019-01-16T00:31:41+00:00

A few months ago, I was in yoga class practicing a balancing pose.  Normally I find a focal point on the wall to help maintain my balance.  For some reason, I became fixated on a crazy design on someone’s shirt.  That person fell, and, of course, I lost my balance as well.  I felt the Lord say gently to me, “If your drishti is on man, you will fall.” Drishti is a yoga term which means focus or concentration.  It not only refers to focus while you are holding a posture (or asana) in yoga, but also refers to focus when [...]

Strength To Serve

2019-01-28T13:13:40+00:00

  Does the idea of “self care” make you feel guilty? I don’t mean “self care” as in pampering yourself, buying new shoes, getting your nails done, etc. as it is often attributed to. I mean taking care of yourself and making sure your needs for sleep, rest, nourishment, and movement are met. Sometimes I still struggle with feeling guilty when I take time to rest, prioritize sleep, say “no” to things that over crowd my schedule, take breaks, make space for my soul, stop to write, etc. I used to think serving others meant hustling 24/7, keeping everyone happy, and [...]

Jesus & Yoga

2019-06-28T20:56:26+00:00

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 1 Peter 3:15-16 And so I begin the task of explaining how and why I have reconciled my practice of yoga with my Christian faith… My hope is to answer honestly and intelligently for all interested to know how a Christian can keep [...]

Postures of Prayer

2018-06-18T23:44:14+00:00

Never stop praying. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 New Living Translation This is our commandment: to never stop praying. Pray without ceasing. There is no right or wrong way to pray; no position of a prayer is superior to another. The only thing that we as believers must do is to humble ourselves before the Lord, acknowledge His Lordship of our lives, and pray without ceasing. The following forms are simply observations of prayer postures found in the Bible that may elevate your spoken... Value your time - omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem Take time off - totam rem aperiam, eaque [...]
