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 [...]

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 [...]

When You Need To Be Still

2018-12-03T12:59:34+00:00

As I sit here staring at this blank computer screen, I haphazardly look over to my left. Our Christmas tree is standing there. Still. Warm. Inviting. It's hard to look away. My eyes just want to engage in the beauty of this tree. No ornaments are even hung yet. But, it doesn't matter. She is glowing with colorful lights. Inviting anyone to come and sit next to her warmth. [yes, I do believe our tree is a "she".] There is nothing really special about this tree. Average height, average breadth. Yet, it is hard to look away. She's just quite a breathtaking [...]

The attitude of gratitude is the highest yoga. -Yogi Bhajan

2018-11-02T15:40:01+00:00

And so we will enter into this holiday season with gratitude, practicing our yoga both on, and off, the mat.  Breath, life, love, art, beauty, friends, family, community, Creation, health, nourishment (for body and soul) and Jesus, these are just some of things for which I am grateful. Will you count your blessings with me? This season, I pray that you will take time to get still, slowing down long enough to take in each of the blessings poured out and pointing you back to the love of your Creator. Namaste and many blessings. Kelly R-CYAMT and Contributing Writer ***You can register for classes and devotions [...]
