Holy yoga

Way back when in 1993, I became a certified Kripalu yoga teacher. I loved yoga!! I taught classes through all 3 of my pregnancies and saw the healing effects of both body, mind and spirit in my body and my students. But what didn't Jive for me was the Eastern spirituality that surrounded it. I never felt connected to the Eastern religions of Buddhism or Hinduism. My calling and heart kept pulling back to Christ! First through the books of Thomas Keating on Centering Prayer. Then through my Catholic heritage and now through Holy Yoga!! I am sooo excited that the Holy Spirit has found a way to link my Love for Christ with my love for yoga. It encourages and invites me to use yoga as a way to "yoke" myself with the the Lord. Using yoga poses as a tool for deepening my faith and connection and giving it all to Christ.
I stopped teaching in 2006 because of the conflict that I felt between my faith and my yoga practice. And now I have been led to teach once again. This time with Holy Yoga. If at anytime i can put my finger on hearing God speak to me, this is the time. He has made it effortless to begin my training in Holy Yoga. God has opened the door for me financially and timewise and has put loving encouraging people in my path. I am ever so grateful for Brooke Boon who is the founder of Holy Yoga! Thank you Brooke for following your calling and purpose to glorify the Lord through sharing yoga and the Holy Yoga program with others!
