This mini-website is a result of what I personally discovered through exploring the Bible—specifically on the subject of whether to practice yoga or not. Please share! Download the kit to share in your home, church, and community.
After an intense study in this as well as the related topic of meditation in the Bible, my discomfort in practicing yoga only grew more. Our bodies were originally designed by God to stretch in certain ways—whether these stretches are used for one purpose or another. Many of us who have asked Jesus to be our Savior as well as the Lord of our lives are inspired to always ever desire more of His purity, truth, unhindered light, and wholeness.
Thankfully, there are alternatives for those who are not comfortable with doing yoga. Simply stretching might be an answer to your physical goals. Or, with fitness that integrates our body movements into the Word of God, we can grow in both physical and spiritual health. Meditation according to the Bible is always in reference to actively filling our thoughts on who God is, His ways, His challenging and encouraging truths in the Bible, the work of His hands, what He has done in our lives, and the like—pondering on our sweet Savior and Lord. For every scripture we internalize and every thought we hold onto of Him, we know and experience Him that much more!
Check out the above three sections (Strengthen Love, Balance Truth, and Express Worship) to see what answers I discovered in the Bible. I encourage you to look further into the referenced Bible passages for context. Or do a word search at blb.org. Search for yourself and let God speak to you—don't take my word for it. Thanks for stopping by!
