I want to clarify a misconception that a lot of religious people have; that yoga practice is not acceptable as a Christian. Actually yoga and religion are classically different. Meditating on the word of God or breathing deeply through a yoga pose brings peace and calmness to your mind and soul. I find that some of my deepest connections with prayer occurs during yoga classes.
During the past 15 months of recovery from my car accident, I’ve come to realize how yoga has promoted healing to my broken femur and spine. The stretching, twisting, and static poses have strengthened my body in ways that physical therapy could not. Many corporations offer yoga to their employees at their work location to improve physical health while decreasing stress and anxiety. One of my favorite instructors brings his guitar to play at the end of class and anyone can join in with the singing.
I have been practicing yoga for over fifteen years and recommend it for anyone wanting more mobility. It will open and stretch you physically while releasing toxins and deep emotions. Incorporating essential oils into your daily regime is truly beneficial and healing as well. I am so thankful for yoga!
Beautifully written and so well expressed, Cat.
I love this, and could not have discovered your blog on a more perfect day. Of course. Thank you, Cat– see you at Yoga! xo
I agree with you Cat, yoga does bring you in to higher vibration. I believe that yoga allows you to be connected with your inner being. I also believe that when you are connected, experiencing higher vibration, you are reunited with source, that which we came from….I just wish the positions weren’t so darn hard 😊…it is a workout, definitely not for the weak.
