I flip-flopped a lot regarding the writing of this post. I wrote it, edited, re-wrote it, threw it away, and then wrote it again. It felt preachy, flakey, and insincere. I worried about offending someone. And then about offending everyone.
In the end, the election stole more of my attention and I really felt for a while that considering the much bigger fish frying in our world the dilemma of Yoga and Christianity co-existing seemed nothing short of silly. But it kept gnawing at me. I kept jotting down notes, rewriting.....and editing.
In the end, I liked the piece enough to send it to one of my favorite health and wellness blogs MindBodyGreen. I think others have done the topic better justice but I was pleasantly surprised that it spoke to a small audience.
In the end, my goal was to relieve a bit of angst in anyone who may feel unsure about the ability to believe in God and practice yoga. I hope that my words were humble enough to open a thoughtful discussion as well as wise enough to interest someone looking for answers.
In my heart, I simply believe yoga is a good thing for everyone.
