To receive the full 17 page PDF see here. And he laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she glorified God. Luke 13:13, ESV Mudra means “seal ”, “closure”, or “gesture” in Sanskrit. We use these gestures mostly in meditation or in pranayama practice to direct the flow of energy within the body by using the hands. If you or your students feel uncomfortable with this term, you can simply refer to them as hand positions or postures of prayer. We will also explore the hand positions found throughout biblical scripture.   The universe is made [...]

Self Care In A Selfish World

2021-05-18T14:32:01+00:00

Treat yourself. Eat whatever you want. Watch as much Netflix as you want. Do whatever you want. This is how self-care is portrayed in the media. It is self-focused and giving yourself whatever you want because you deserve it. Self-care today feeds us what we want and not what we need. True self-care is not an excuse to treat ourselves to whatever we want. This is a good thing because when we chase after what we want, we often miss out on what we need. The example of Jesus paints a different picture of self-care. When we practice the self-care found in Jesus’ example, we can find the [...]

The Return

2021-03-22T15:48:29+00:00

The Return  Published in FROM THE GARDEN, 2020  Bonnie McDaniel McClure  I grew up across the street from a thirteen-acre garden plowed and planted by a  single, lifetime farmer, his plow, and mule named Midnight. Mr. Freddie Crawford  came from a long line of farmers. Farming was all his family had ever done for  livelihood. He knew intimately the timing, care, and touch required to help  something grow. He was humble and hardworking, quiet and non-assuming. He was  deeply kind. Throughout my childhood, each summer, he would tell me that he had a  watermelon growing with my name on the vine.   [...]

Considering Faith Based Yoga Teacher Training?

2021-03-22T15:50:13+00:00

If there is one topic that I could talk all day about it is faith based yoga teacher training. I spend many days in my week talking to people about this very subject, and what a blessing that I am given the opportunity to do so! Many people have found me because it is known that I have trained with two of the larger faith based schools available. Through all of this training I have become very passionate about encouraging people to ask good questions before committing time and money to a training. When I first began my journey into teacher [...]

Even Jesus Did Spring Cleaning

2021-03-17T16:04:41+00:00

“On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. And as he taught them, he said, ‘Is it not written: “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’’”—Mark 11:15–17 (NIV) The word zeal isn’t one you hear very often. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to hear it come up in everyday conversation. The [...]

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 [...]
