We have been doing passion projects and for those of you that don’t know what that is, you can find out more about them here. Terice stepped up to raise funds for YoungLives and plan her very own passion project with something she is very gifted in and loves to do, Holy Yoga. All of the funds from this will be matched by a donor so all proceeds will be doubled!! Below you can read about Holy Yoga from instructor Terice Ziemann.
It is so important for me that people know the definition of the word yoga: union, yoked, discipline etc. Therefore, yoga postures were discovered 5,000 years ago on the walls of caves. The movement was to help with their breath and healing of people to name a few benefits. Then, Hinduism inserted it and other religions 2,500 years ago.
The western culture has used this intentional movement and breath in a variety of ways such as to treat PTSD, Trauma etc, but just did not use the word yoga! Since 2001, Brooke Boon (Founder of Holy Yoga) a Christian took the discipline, posture and intentional breath of yoga but made the Holy Spirit the centered focus. Whereas in traditional yoga we are the center not God!
The Holy Yoga Mission statement is: Holy yoga is experiential worship specifically created to deepen your connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to combine world class yoga with Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non believers a like to authentically connect with God. We do this by integrating His Word, prayer,worship and the physical practice of yoga to contemporary and Christian worship music. We would love for you to join us on Friday, Oct. 21st at 6:30p, (the warehouse, 3095 RedHill Ave,Costa Mesa 93636). You can sign up here for this night!
