Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I felt like today would be a good time for me to finally talk about yoga. I have been wanting to write this post for a long time. I think it has been a matter of having the time to sit and really talk about it, as well as finding the words. I started doing yoga when I was about 18 ( I think??) and honestly I think the reason why I got scared off was because there were certain religious points used in yoga that didn’t line up with my Bible. Some may argue that I should really focus on the fitness part. But when you look at the meditation part of yoga, for myself personally, it’s easier to be a part of a yoga class that lines up with what you believe. I have done yoga at home off and on. Then I discovered Holy Yoga. I attended my first class and I was hooked. I love being able to meditate on scripture and worship, and be encouraged to do so. Since making yoga a more regular part of my daily routine, my allergies and my asthma as well as my back pain are under control. It has encouraged me to have a healthier life style as well. My quiet times have been sweeter. It has been monumental in my journey to being still.
There is something rewarding about unrolling your mat and stretching. While I’m stretching I like to focus on the worship music that is playing and really think about the words. Praying the words and actively seeking God. I want to share with you the website for Holy Yoga here. For you to learn more about what Holy Yoga is all about. I think it is super important to take care of our bodies. Through eating well and being active. Yoga promotes good sleeping habits, and getting rid of those nasty toxins that are being hoarded in our bodies. We are living in a tech savvy world, and with the that comes the price on aching necks and fingers. As a blogger, I do spend a lot of time at the computer and on my phone. So taking the time to take care of myself really helps keep blogging something I enjoy!
I know this is a short post, but I am so glad that I was able to share with you a little bit about yoga and why I love it. What about you? What are favorite forms of exercise?
