As we’ve pointed out before Mark Driscoll is not a fan of yoga.
So, I wonder how he’s taking this piece of news…..
‘Holy yoga’ for Jesus coming to Seattle area
by Amy Rolph, seattlepi.com
Grab your mat and say a prayer, Seattle.
Yoga just got a whole lot more pious.
“Holy Yoga” is happening in Redmond Friday and Saturday, part of a weekend workshop event for yogis with Christian convictions.
What’s on the schedule? I’m so glad you asked.
Attendees will start out with a “Jesus at the Core” Bible study. (Get it? Because yoga is all about engaging your core, right?)
There’s gentle holy yoga and power holy yoga — all about encouraging “victorious living in Christ.”
“Holy Yoga is a holistic worship experience,” said Brooke Boon, founder of Holy Yoga. “We use our minds to study and meditate on the word of God, our hearts to listen, our bodies to glorify and our souls to respond to the promptings of His Holy Spirit.”
The event is happening at the Washington Cathedral in Redmond, where pastor Pastor Linda Skinner is a fan. The church hosts weekly holy yoga classes.
“We take seriously what God’s Word says to us about our bodies being a temple of the Holy Spirit,” Skinner said in a prepared statement.
Not everyone in the Christian community is a fan of yoga. Mark Driscoll, pastor of the every-growing Mars Hill Church in Seattle, recently said yoga is “demonic” and “absolute paganism.”
