The instructor of my “dance fusion” class yesterday (Renee) made such an interesting comment. She loves to dance, but she said yoga is the key to her success. It keeps her flexible and she said it has taught her to remain unattached to people, places, and things. I tend to think of yoga as “new age” but this is very inline with Christian thinking.
I think as people we do tend to worry a lot and get very attached to our loved ones and possessions. I think there is a level of attachment that is okay to God: love, caring, and wanting people in your life. However, when we allow a certain person, place, or possession to ruin our day, I think we are not pleasing God.
I’m thinking of taking a few of Renee’s yoga classes. It seems relaxing and I could use the lessons in flexibility as well as some stress relief.
Have y’all taken yoga? What did you think?
