All this moving and breathing sets us up for the real treasure – meditation. It’s hard to be still and meditate on Truth when our mind is racing and our body is restless. So we stretch and we strengthen, we breathe into the tight spaces and we make more room so that we can sit for a few minutes and just be still with God.

“The Lord will fight for you, you need only be still.” {Exodus 14:14}

Meditation can be one of the most challenging parts of a yoga practice, but it’s where the real deep heart work can happen. We close our eyes and sit with whatever comes up. Sometimes that looks like turning over a verse or a promise from God in our minds, and sometimes that looks like asking him to reveal what’s going on deep inside and asking for forgiveness, healing, and restoration. It’s that moment of drawing close to him as he draws close to us. Yoga, much like our faith, is an inside job.
