Scripture Yoga™ is a Christ-centered alternative to secular yoga where theme-based Bible verses are recited while participants hold a yoga pose. In fact, it is like a mini-Bible study. Meditating on verses while in the postures creates a very tranquil time for God to penetrate one’s heart so you can hear from him. Finally, you are away from all the distractions of life and in His presence.
This is a beginner yoga class that anyone can perform. If you can’t get on the floor, pull up a chair and do the postures in a seated position. Seniors love my class because it improves their flexibility. Taking care of the glorious body God gave you allows God to be honored and glorified in a personal way.
