In HOLY YOGA, Brooke Boon combines her passion for Christianity with her commitment to health to introduce yoga as a physical and spiritual discipline that strengthens the body and the soul. Yoga is NOT a religion, she emphasizes, but an exercise style Christians can use to develop patience, strength, and deeper worship. With clear explanations and 155 illustrations demonstrating basic postures, Boon provides customized yoga routines for readers struggling with specific issues, such as weight loss, anxiety, pregnancy, and depression. HOLY YOGA takes the reader through all the proven health benefits and is based on Scriptures such as Romans 12:1: “Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.” Warm, engaging, and personal, readers will find HOLY YOGA an easy-to-follow and effective supplement to enhance their spiritual lives.

 

Brooke Boon is the founder of Holy Yoga, a ministry that introduces people to yoga as a form of Christian worship. Boon has profitably owned, operated, and sold yoga studios for years. She lives in Phoenix with her husband and three children.

    Great book! Really interesting and thought provoking. I am a Christian and i have reconciled myself some time ago to yoga poses being no problem for Christians to do. For instance, most Christians have no issue at all with Pilates, yet many of the stretches and moves Mr Pilates took straight from yoga. However I had never really considered a Christian approach to involving the whole body in worship with the poses, aka Holy Yoga. I love the concept. I totally disagree with the other reviewer saying you can't Have Christian yoga - it would be like saying a particular religion had an exclusivity on prayer or an atheist couldn't fast, We might do these things with a different understanding of what they mean to us, but we can all recognise them by the terminology used as to a rough idea of what we mean. Christian yoga is opposite in many ways to Eastern yoga. It is focused on Christ not on self. We would not look within to find the answers, but to God, and when we mediate we fill our minds with scripture and godly thoughts, not emptying our minds. There's loads of great resources at holy yoga.net, including Holy Yoga TV, which is awesome. It's a subscription service that allows access to a number of great quality yoga training sessions. I really enjoyed this book. If you are sceptical about Christian Yoga, you should read it. It addresses some of the concerns about yoga, but also gives the vision for how it helps and e physical and other benefits to practising yoga and how it can help us grow closer to God. It does also outline some of the issues with practising yoga that is not Christian yoga, for Christians.
