It may be one of the world’s oldest practices, but it still stirs up questions for so many of us. That’s why I’ve asked Keleah Anderson, owner of Abundant Yoga to help us re-think yoga with a Christ-centered approach.
A Christ-centered Yoga Experience
What is Christ-centered yoga? What makes it different?
First and foremost, Keleah taught us about rethinking yoga with a Christ-centered experience. The Holy Spirit is the guide for everything done on (and off) the yoga mat. Instead of focusing on words like “hustle/heavy/hard”, replace them with more opportunity for healing and health.
We provide a complete experience of union with God our Creator through meditation that is still, movement that is gentle, and postures that are powerful.Abundant Yoga
After all, God created everything and we are to do everything as if doing it unto the Lord, not man.
Keep it Simple
Worship equals connection. A Christ-centered yoga approach represents a yoking of both word and worship. At the core, it embodies living with raw authenticity and total surrender with a willingness to be uncomfortable when growth requires.
We have to remember it’s important to have fun. After all, yoga is called a practice for a reason. We need to release the need to be perfect or the fear we’re not good enough.
My 3 Favorite Yoga Moves
Earlier in Episode 5 of The Sami Cone Show, I spoke about my healthy morning routine. A critical component of that is yoga and deep breathing. I specifically do 3 poses each day to help my back: mountain, warrior and tree.
You don’t have to set aside an hour each day (thought you may be pleasantly surprised by the physical and emotional benefits if you do). Instead, start with doing some of the simple, grounding poses Keleah demonstrated on-air. These are yoga poses women (or men) of any age can try.
