Namaste & Imago Dei

2019-05-20T17:29:07+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 [...]

Jesus & Yoga

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 [...]

Meditating with prayer beads for Lent

2019-03-11T13:20:56+00:00

Though the ages, prayer beads have been used as a universal tool for meditation and prayer in most every culture and faith tradition. Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism, and the Baha’i Faith all use some form of prayer beads to recite chants, prayers, or devotions. Judaism uses knotted fringes on the corners of a prayer shawl as a reminder for prayer. The practice of pausing on each knot or bead during prayer helps us to center our hearts on God and to guard our minds against distraction. Using beads during prayer in the Christian faith is believed to originate with the Desert Mothers and Fathers around [...]

Christian resources are plentiful.  You can find everything from cards to dice to digital apps.  Thankfully there are wonderful Christ-centered options that can safely center your practice and classes.~ CYA Not long ago, I was approached by popular yoga website and asked if I would like to have them review my Postures of Prayer yoga card deck.  Initially, I shrugged it off and figured that this yoga site had made a mistake and didn’t realize that my yoga deck was centered around the Christian faith.  When I received the second email asking if I would consider submitting my yoga deck for [...]

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 [...]
