Yoga and Christianity

I never really gave serious consideration to the spiritual origins of yoga, especially because the power yoga class I usually do is anything but spiritual. (We listen to Lenny Kravitz and do hula hoop motions most days.) Reader Chili T turned me on to this article in Her.meneutics by a woman who used to do FOCUS (young life for rich kids). She discusses how although it has Hindu origins, yoga can be used as a physical response to what we know to be true about God. Like the author, I’ve often used yoga poses in my own prayer life.

I’ve also learned to breathe, and that has changed me.
