This Wed, at 6 pm PST our Zoom group will be led by Pastor Phil Vestal co-director of Ruah Space. He will take us through some moves and talk with us about what he refers to as “Christian Yoga.” Be prepared to move around a little. We might do a combination of both yoga before Centering Prayer and/or Yoga DURING Centering Prayer. It should make for a very engaging session of movement and mindfulness.
Join our Zoomie MeetUp group.
Jamie and I advocate for 20-30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week, as part of your prayer life. Ideally, you would exercise before your mindful prayer or contemplation. Yoga, specifically, the ancient Vedic practice of Asana, or stretching postures that we commonly call Yoga was initially designed to prepare the body for meditation (what Christians call contemplation).
