Seek Truth

Taking on the Masters Program by Holy Yoga this year has been an adventure. Once I completed my 225-hour training in November of 2018, I knew I had just scratched the surface and I was immediately drawn to taking the Masters program. The Masters program is a 300-hour training the full duration of the year. Each class takes us a little bit deeper into understanding God, scripture, yoga, spiritual disciplines, and so so so much more. It feels like that popular quote, 'the more you learn, the less you know' as you are opened up to so many concepts and ideas and theories that make you want to freeze time so you can continue to learn.   While many of the weekly classes, additional video and audio recordings and books to review have left me saying, 'this was my favourite class yet!', this past Monday's class was nothing short of [...]

NOURISHED

When I sat down to write this blog post about NOURISH: A Holy Yoga Class + Zero Waste Brunch I was immediately overwhelmed with my own personal work that happened on my yoga mat in preparation for the yoga portion of the class. I spent a solid hour (and took over the google doc titled Nourish Blog) and used it as a personal time to journal; to write about my own unravelling and seeking Nourishment on my mat the week leading up the event, the unwinding of my own story that led me to place of surrender and tears on my yoga mat while the playlist for the class moved me to worship. The writing was therapeutic, as always, and helped me process the moments on the mat that went to form the experience I brought to those who attended Nourish.   I’ve already told you all about the beginnings [...]

Hope + Heart

You are invited to HOPE + HEART: a Christmas Holy Yoga Experience! Since completing my yoga teacher training with Holy Yoga I knew I wanted to do Christmas yoga flow. I couldn't imagine a more perfect way to begin using my training-- hosting an event that would truly be an expression of my own experience with Holy Yoga. The event will open with a sharing of information on Holy Yoga and what 'Christian yoga' is. Then we will move into a few moments of prayer and meditation practicing Lectio Divina, an ancient method of praying scripture. The yoga portion of our class will be a heart-opening slow flow practice to the sounds of inspiring Christmas and worship music that will remind you of the hope of the Christmas season. During a slow flow class, we hold poses for longer periods of time to learn the flow and build muscle memory [...]

Yoga Teacher, Gospel Preacher

"You're a yoga teacher, gospel preacher." Those were the words spoken to us during our 'graduation' on our final night of immersion week as part of our 225 hour Holy Yoga teacher certification. Before that declaration was a stream of words spoken by one of our leaders that only God knew would reach the depths of each of our hearts as the words articulated the truths we most needed to hear, the encouragement to stay the path once returning home, and the confidence to stand in the truth of who we are even when we so often forget. Each member of my small group had a different divinely inspired word spoke over them and mine was just as special and unique as each of the others... Seen. Adored. Kind. Sweet. A few other words were spoken then came the one... accepted. The very first night at Bible with the creator [...]
