What is Yoga


Yoga is a tool that helps us connect with ourselves and with God. There’s something powerful that happens when we commit to just being present on our yoga mats, focused on each inhale and exhale, surrendered in each pose. As we move and breathe, we make more space in our bodies and hearts to hear from God. The running to-do list and bubbling anxieties take a back seat to the gentle invitation to “be still and know.”

“Be still and know that I am God.” {Psalm 46:10}

Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means union. When we step on our yoga mats, we invite God to draw our hearts closer to His, to bring healing and wholeness to our broken places, and to show us the way to authentic freedom. Each yoga class is made up of these three elements: Breathe, Asana (pose), and Meditation.
