I grew up very conservatively. The churches we attended taught the Bible very well, but some had a few “extra” rules.
Yoga was one example.
I was taught Yoga was evil. I was taught it was focused on emptying your mind which would allow spirits to come in.
I never questioned it. It was just truth.
Fast forward a few years, okay, a lot of years. There was Yoga on the Wii Fit. It said nothing about emptying my mind. And trust me, my mind was FULL of thoughts, “please dear God, don’t let me fall flat on my face.”
Recently, I have discovered PiYo. It has Yoga and Pilates and sweat all together. It also has me praying, “dear God, don’t let me fall on my butt!”
Today the girls asked me if they could try a Yoga challenge they found on-line. I watched, originally to oversee what they had found to make sure it didn’t lead them astray, but it ended up being the funniest part of my day!!!
