Can Christians Practise Yoga Without Affecting Their Faith?

May - 11 2015 | By

Yoga has always been a controversial topic among some strict Christian groups. Many refuse to do Yoga because they think that doing it to indoctrinate someone into being a Hindu and therefore violates their faith in Christ. On the other hand using Yoga as an exercise is unlike the Hindu Yoga. Yes Yoga does rely in poses that allow your soul to be in a meditative state but while posing you always use your intentions to connect with Christ. Christ has said that our body is the temple of God and maintaining it would be following His Word. Yoga can help you release stress which allows you to be a kinder and more loving person, which is ultimately the Word of God. Putting in practices from around the world into our faith is a good way to be a true child of Jesus.
