Holy Yoga

Christian Yoga-Type Exercise!

For a long time, Christians have shied away from yoga because of its connection with Eastern religions.  In our home, however, we do yoga-type exercise as a way to remain fit.  It is EXCELLENT exercise and fun for the whole family.  My husband has significantly decreased his back and joint pain by strengthening his core through yoga-type exercise.  He does a simple routine every morning and every evening.  There are many other Christians like us who have discovered that this kind of exercise is not religion, but a wonderful way to care for our bodies.

My clients who have done yoga-type exercise throughout their pregnancies have been in great shape for delivery and find it very easy to assume whatever labor or delivery position is needed.  They also have a quicker recovery after giving birth.

I am aware of two Christian yoga organizations, “Yahweh Yoga” and “Holy Yoga”, but there may be more.  I recently discovered that “Holy Yoga” has DVDs that are specifically for pregnant women.  This would be a great way to introduce beneficial yoga-type exercise to Christian friends and clients who may have been hesitant to consider it in the past.
