Root and Flourish

Holy Yoga - Bible Study - Retreats
ROOT:
TO RENDER FIRM,
TO FIX, ESTABLISH,
CAUSE A PERSON OR THING TO BE THOROUGHLY GROUNDED.

What delight comes to the one who follows God’s ways!...

His pleasure and passion is remaining true to the Word of “I Am,” meditating day and night in the true revelation of light.

He will be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss, bearing fruit in every season of his life. 

He is never dry, never fainting, ever blessed, ever prosperous.

Psalm 1:1a, 2-3 TPT

FLOURISH:
TO BREAK FORTH AS A BUD, I.E. BLOOM; GENERALLY, TO SPREAD;
SPECIFICALLY,
TO FLY
(AS EXTENDING THE WINGS)

Why Holy Yoga?

...and what is Holy Yoga, anyway?

About Holy Yoga

Holy Yoga - or any form of Christian Yoga - is not a religion. Rather, it is a physical practice of aligning the body combined with breath work and mindful intention of reliance on God.  It is an experiential worship practice created to deepen people’s connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to facilitate a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non-believers alike to authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. Holy Yoga exists to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga.

Is Holy Yoga for you?

Holy Yoga is right for you if you have ever considered the powerful and proven benefits of practicing yoga, but have been apprehensive about the intent.  Holy Yoga combines the proven benefits of a yoga practice with scriptural teachings and prayer.  It is an amazing opportunity to connect to and glorify God in your mind, body and soul.  

 

This Yoga experience is a time of worship, praise, and connection to Christ practiced to contemporary and motivational Christian music.  It is an experience that teaches us to take time to love, nurture, accept, heal and grow ourselves in His Word and in His Spirit. All levels from beginners to advanced yoga practitioners are welcome.

Testimonials

"I find the scripture, devotions, and worship music create the perfect environment for meeting with Jesus.  Absolutely every time I go to Holy Yoga, the Lord speaks something to my heart. 

It's an hour of focus and meditation and prayer. 

I love it.  I need it.  I hate to miss it!!!"
