If you haven't noticed we are in the midst of a global pandemic. Mental health has never been so important as it is right now. When our world has been turned upside down with illness, loss of jobs, income, friends, and family, it is more important than ever to stay rooted and connected to the One that remains constant through it all. In Psalms chapter 1, we are called to "...meditate on His Word day and night."
The word "yoga" means "union" or "to yoke". God tells us that when we yoke ourselves to Him our burden is lighter. In Holy Yoga class we often talk about, as Christians, we already have a "one-up" on the rest of the world. Not only do we know that we can yoke ourselves to God, but we are commanded to. Further, we have a responsibility to share this connection to Him with others. Jesus took up the cross for everyone. Therefore, the yoking to Him is available to all who believe.
In Holy Yoga class, this is our focus. A connection to the Most High. Some get that through song. Some of us connect better through prayer. Some of us, through movement. I offer a breath and movement meditation to help find that God connection on the mat. Worship music is often played as we stretch our bodies and focus on His Good Word.
I encourage my classes to anyone who is interested in bringing Christ into their meditation or exercise routine. Visit www.oneloveonebody.com for more details.
