Can Christians Do Yoga?

Can Christians do yoga? This is a question that I see getting asked a lot, and the answer is yes Christians can do yoga, but they have to understand that it’s not just going to be a physical workout. Most people who have been doing yoga for any length of time to understand this, but some Christians are still unclear as to why.

Can Christians Do Yoga?

Can Christians do yoga? This is a question that I see getting asked a lot, and the answer is yes Christians can do yoga, but they have to understand that it’s not just going to be a physical workout. Most people who have been doing yoga for any length of time to understand this, but some Christians are still unclear as to why.

 

The first thing that needs to be understood about doing yoga is that the word yoga means “to unite” or “to join.” To do this, Christians need to learn how to meditate. While it is possible to learn and practice meditation on one’s own, this can be very time consuming and often results in a lack of focus and concentration. By learning to meditate and then joining forces with the Lord, it is possible to live a more fulfilled life, both spiritually and physically.

 

When I teach others how to do yoga this way, I always try to explain to them that in order to fully experience all of the benefits that come from this ancient tradition, it’s important to learn how to meditate on a regular basis, and then to remain focused and unified in prayer. When Christians do this, they can stay away from many of the temptations that the world tries to bring them through. By staying focused and unified in their minds, it is easier to stay away from the things in the world that would rather distract them, and instead focus all of their attention on the Lord.
