Holy yoga. Have you been?!? I admit, I was hesitant to go. Yoga in itself can be awkward - but to add holiness into it - what would that even look like? ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ My church offers it, and my body has been nagging me to do something a little extra to keep it moving. So, holy yoga it was.

I admit, I sent Marco Polos to my go-to girls and crossed my fingers that somebody else would come. Nope. I hoped that Carol {the holy yoga queen} would miss my name on the sign up, but she sent the reminder via text AND email... โ€œcanโ€™t wait for you to be there!โ€ Time to find those clean yoga pants.

I covered myself in Dove body spray because, if there was a holy body spray, it would certainly be named Dove. And I put on this shirt โฌ†๏ธ. Totally extra holy. ย Oh - and a must have - something to cover the fanny. I mean, are you allowed to bare it all in holy yoga?!? Out the door, with my mat, water, and skepticism in tote. It was time to holy-yoga-it!

We started by sharing what weโ€™ve felt the Lord doing in our lives lately. No holding back. Girls spoke about fresh starts, answered prayers, the Lordโ€™s mercy... there was something about sitting in spandex, with everybody else in their spandex, that removes barriers. Okay seriously, our leader invited the Holy Spirit to bring comfort, peace, and truth to our time together, and He came!

Carol then proceeded to kick our yoga butts {while playing amazing worship music} and awoke our souls {through reading scripture over us} as we held painful positions and willed our bodies to โ€œrelax.โ€ She spoke truth and used normal yoga positions to expand on our understanding of Godโ€™s removal of sin, redemption, and gentle stretching of our wills in order to make us stronger and more ready for His calling. It was beautiful.

I couldnโ€™t stop the tears at one point, not from an overly-prolonged hold, but from feeling Jesusโ€™ presence as we worshipped in mind and body. โ€œWhyโ€™s the new girl crying?โ€ No worries, Jesus was in my practice for the first time, and Iโ€™ll be back! So glad I came!
