Pray Fast Vote!

2020-09-26T01:10:26+00:00

PRAY FAST VOTE The statistics are staggering. Over 15 million Christians are not registered to vote. Because we know the importance of voting, the urgency in this space and time to do so, as well as the incredible privilege that many were denied in history, this is the time to vote and make your voice known. We realize that social and political unrest have caused great tension, anxiety and even depression. Please find a class from our Class Theme Resource at the end of this article. You have all become true children of God by the faith of Jesus the Anointed [...]

Caring for the Soul During Covid 19

2020-04-09T00:22:19+00:00

LESSONS FROM PASSOVER FOR COVID-19 By Jody Thomae, April 2020 I’ve been spending a great deal of time contemplating Passover, not just because of the time of year, but also because of this world-wide health scare we call COVID-19. In 2020, Passover will be celebrated April 8-16th. It is a traditional Jewish holiday dating back to the earliest times of human history (prior to 1400 BCE) and is originally found in the twelfth chapter of Exodus: While the Israelites were still in the land of Egypt, the Lord gave the following instructions to Moses and Aaron: “From now on, this month will be [...]

Christian Yoga Class Themes from A-Z

2020-01-03T22:04:41+00:00

There seems to be a shortage of Christ centered class theme offerings, so CYA wanted to help. CYA's Michelle Thielen has contributed a wonderful 70 page booklet, covering 26 class themes to draw any practitioner or trainer closer to God. These class themes could be used as one leads others through class, as a guide for one's personal practice or a resource for bible subjects to lead a bible study, a session at a retreat or provide insight for a speaking engagement. We know that if you are a Christian who loves yoga, this will bless you for many years to [...]

How Would Jesus Look Today?

2020-01-03T21:52:56+00:00

How Would Jesus Look? Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1 In your mind’s eye, how do you visualize the person of Christ? As an artist, how would you paint Him? Probably with a beard and a robe and sandals. We don’t know the Lord’s weight or height or facial features, but we do know something about the clothing styles of His day. But now, imagine Him in a business suit. Or—this isn’t disrespectful—in casual clothing. Can you imagine Him in jeans and an untucked shirt? In other words, if Jesus had come bodily to live in [...]

To Om or Not to Om

2019-06-28T20:39:20+00:00

Due to the extensive 13 page article, please retrieve your free PDF at YogaFaith's Store. Enjoy!   TO OM OR NOT TO OM by Michelle Thielen, Founder of YogaFaith In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1, KJV From the beginning, and when I say, “beginning,” I am referencing the very beginning. The first scriptures found in the Bible describe the beauty and power of spoken words. These creative and sacred words hovered over unoccupied atmospheres bringing life out of absolute nothingness. A holy sound, a holy utterance spoke into emptiness [...]

Namaste & Imago Dei

2019-12-23T19:51:15+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 [...]

Celebrating Mothers On The Mat

2019-05-08T15:11:52+00:00

This is the weekend we celebrate Motherhood, a special role given by the grace of God.  Motherhood taps into all that we exercise in yoga - the mind, the body and the soul.  The more we yoke those elements to Christ in our daily lives, the richer the relationship between a mother and child.  Come to your practice with the intentions to nourish your mind, body and soul so that, as mother and/or child, you can love each through the power of God’s love. Opening Meditation Prayer:  Lord, on this special day set aside to honor Mothers, thank you for the [...]
