That’s what I hear all the time when I tell people that I’m a Yoga instructor. YES you can be a CHRISTIAN and also practice yoga.
My journey to yoga actually started a few years ago when I first started practicing in a local gym. I used yoga as a way to gain flexibility and supplement my workouts, but the BOOM! One day on the mat something dope happened… I had a try Jesus encounter!
That’s right, in the middle of a downward dog I felt the Lord’s presence so strong. I was shook ya’ll! Then in the meditation time, I sat and prayed… in final savasana I found rest in the Lord.
After that encounter I knew I couldn’t have been the only person who had ever been wrecked by the Lord in yoga before…so what did I do? Went to google (duh) to look up Christian based yoga practices (mostly so I didn’t look like a weirdo in the middle of class slain in the spirit).
Then I found Annette!
She was using scripture in her yoga practice through her platform Trinity Yoga. The way she weaved the word and used breath and meditation as a form of worship… I knew I had found my people!
Skipping to today, I just finished my certification with Holy Yoga and I truly feel like I’m walking in my calling. In my classes, I create space for Holy Spirit to come in to meet with us. This is done through, intention setting and weaving the word thoughout the poses within class.
