About Christ-Centered Yoga

What is Yoga?

Yoga is not a religion; it’s a discipline for release and healing. The classical Indian Sanskrit word for yoga is yug, which translates into yoke or union.

A yoga system is a whole-body approach that connects the body through postures, the mind through concentration and meditation, and the Spirit with the breath.

This method is practiced widely for better health, disease prevention, alignment, better posture, relaxation, joint and bone health, and blood flow.

Yoga is a vehicle for self-discovery and is incorporated into daily life, whether you are a Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, or Atheist.

What is Christian, Christ-centered (CCY), or Holy Yoga?

As a person of faith, I have chosen to add a Christ-centered philosophy to my yoga practice.

Out of the heart’s overflow, we worship the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

This is a tangible way to yoke with the unforced rhythms of His grace, rest, and care for the body, the temple, the Spirit’s dwelling place, the gift He gave us.

It is God-love, bodily prayer, worship, and intimate surrender to His presence and power. It is self-love, awareness, breath, physical movement, and stillness.

Create Space For Silence & Healing.

It is an intentional time to tune in to what your body speaks and needs, create space for silence and healing, and remember who you are, His child, and how divinely He created you.

CCY is also a release of tension; it produces a relaxation response, improves circulation, flexibility, and boosts the immune system.

Christian Yoga is also a community of heart-centered women and men who believe in the power of each other’s connectedness through the body of Christ.

Healthy bodies are essential to personal growth, well-being, relationships, and service. When we’re energetic and joyful, we care for others with ease over exhaustion.

We must fill up to pour out effectively.

What does it mean to live Christ-centered?

Place Your Life Before God. So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.

Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God.

You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its immaturity level, God brings the best out of you and develops well-formed maturity in you.
