  • Why I Teach Yoga from a Christian Perspective — Christians Practicing Yoga
    Why I Teach Yoga from a Christian Perspective Why I Teach Yoga from a Christian Perspective Dayna Gelinas When I began New Day Yoga I made the decision to teach yoga from a Christian perspective because I wanted to include the very specific truth about the One and Only God who is a triune being of Father Son and Spirit in my classes I didn t want to discuss God in generic universal tones that could cheat people out of the fullness of a relationship with Him or worse I didn t want to mislead them into thinking that all mention of God is the same One passage that became a theme for me was from Ephesians 4 To each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it to prepare us for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ Then we will no longer be infants tossed back and forth by the waves and blown here and there by every wind of teaching Instead we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head that is Christ From him the whole body joined and held together by every supporting ligament grows and builds itself up in love as each part does its work Eph 4 7 12 16 I wanted my yoga classes to build up the body of Christ on every level body soul and spirit especially the level of the spirit since Christians are told to live by the Spirit So I made it a point to include Scripture in every class believing that the Holy Spirit would actively inhabit God s Word bringing transformation to those who heard it and received it as truth Some of my favorite passages are those that remind my students Who Christ is and what He accomplished through His life death and resurrection The truth about Christ He is the Son of the living God Mt 16 16 The Son is the radiance of God s glory and the exact representation of his being sustaining all things by his powerful word Heb 1 3 Christ and the Father are one John 10 30 He is the way the truth and the life No one comes to the Father except through Him John 14 6 All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in him Col 2 2 3 In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form Col 2 9 10 Christ has overcome the world John 16 33 I also wanted to remind my students what Christ s life accomplished for all Believers and remind them who they were in Christ The truth about a Christian a believer and follower of Christ A Christian is chosen by God and is precious to him 1 Peter

  • History — Christians Practicing Yoga
    for us to come together for a few days to deepen different aspects of the teaching Many also reported a sense of feeling isolated and expressed a desire for mutual support and an opportunity to share with others both the joys and cutting edge challenges of their work In 1999 my community the Paulists called me to New York City to open and develop a Paulist North American Office for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations I arrived there in January 2000 One of the reasons New York City had been chosen as the site for this new office was its proximity to Mount Paul our retreat center in Oak Ridge NJ just an hour outside of Manhattan Oak Ridge I July 21 26 2001 Oak Ridge Gathering Participants 2001 In my invitation to the growing network of yoga instructors to come together for five days at Oak Ridge I proposed that we undertake to offer the various program components ourselves and serve as resource people for one another Participants were invited to prepare either a presentation on a question of interest or to lead one of our yoga sessions We would keep costs low by eliminating honorariums and hold the fee to whatever would cover room and board A yoga teacher from Connecticut Karen McGee accepted to handle the administrative aspects gratis Clearly this gathering was going to be by the people for the people and of the people interested Eighteen yoga teachers and practitioners from across the U S and Canada dovetailed their summer schedules to participate Among them were two Catholic priests two Protestant ministers three psychotherapists a medical doctor a spiritual director a retreat center program director Roughly half had graduate degrees in theology If the absence of published Christian reflection on yoga is any indication it may have been the first time in the North American context that a group committed to both yoga and meditation came together for several days to reflect on their experience precisely as Christians The common denominator was that every one had made a Prayer of Heart and Body retreat so I knew them but they did not yet know one another except where they d been on the same retreat A network did not yet exist In addition to early morning and mid afternoon yoga practice sessions followed by meditation those who carried a particular subject with passion or interest were invited to make a presentation in one of our twice daily reflection sessions and elicit the wisdom of the group in discussion A sampling of subject titles Christology and Yoga Bodies Breath and Bible Praying with Movement Meditation Mind and Mantra Connecting the Inward and the Outward Journeys It was a rich feast involving reflection upon the incarnational and relational nature of Christian theology the challenge of integrating both the inward individual psychological contemplative and outward social political and ecological journey the joys and difficulties experienced by Prayer of Heart and Body practitioners and the obstacles faced by those who are trying to introduce yoga and meditation into explicitly Christian contexts Some of the presentations begged to be shared more widely and I invited the presenters to write up their talks toward a possible edited volume that might enable us to reach a larger forum In one of our reflection sessions each participant was invited to write down the words s he uses in responding to questions like What is Christian yoga How can yoga be Christian How does yoga contribute to a Christian s faith development The rich tapestry of responses revealed that this was a young and fresh conversation full of promise with lots of room in it for further growth and development In our closing session we spoke of how we might stay in touch with one another and keep the dialogue going via the internet One of the participants proceeded to reserve a few possible domain names for a website but neither a list serve nor a website resulted What seemed most doable given the basis of volunteerism on which everything moved forward was for participants to simply continue their personal contacts with one another Oak Ridge II August 2 7 2003 In January 2003 I sent out a letter of invitation to come together again By this time the list of invitees had grown through my ongoing retreats and programs as well as through the recommendations by previous participants of those whom they had met I decided to drop participation in a Prayer of Heart and Body retreat as a criteria for invitation There was a risk in this of ending up with a too disparate group with no common universe of reference where meditation and yoga were concerned but the risk was engaged out of a sense of respect for how the Holy Spirit works in many marvelous ways Twenty three people from nine states MD WDC AL GA NY NJ MA CT PA and three Canadian provinces AB QC ON and Switzerland came together for Oak Ridge II Karen McGee again rendered vital service as our volunteer administrator The theme of embodiment already introduced at Oak Ridge I emerged more strongly and with sharper definition Embodiment in our discussions refers to how the fruits of spiritual life practices such as hatha yoga and meditation find application relative to other bodies like the civic body e g in work for the poor or through active membership in the body of believers in one s local church community or in care for the environment our earth body This is clearly an expanded framework of reflection especially for those coming with just their own personal yoga or meditation practice and relationship with God in mind Participants have engaged with this theme in varying degrees and ways recognizing in it a distinctly holistic emphasis that Christian faith via the Incarnation brings to the whole notion of embodied spiritual practices A measure of how it has stamped our reflection is found in the book that largely issued from the Oak Ridge I and II discussions and contains chapters written by several participants Reclaiming the Body in Christian Spirituality Paulist 2005 The Oak Ridge II gathering gave clear indication that people in different parts of the continent were working with yoga and meditation in various ways and making an effort in doing so to be consistent with the logic of Christian faith Our conversations in plenary sessions made it increasingly clear we have no desire to christianize yoga There is only a strong desire to live a holistic Christian spirituality as well as a conviction based on experience that yoga and meditation can make a positive contribution to this We recognized that Christian yoga is a descriptive phrase that raises more questions than it answers and runs the risk of creating the impression that we are co opting yoga and retro fitting it in Christian terms failing to respect its own integrity on its own terms To avoid such an impression many in our network choose not to describe their teaching and classes as Christian yoga while others recognizing its liability continue to use it for lack of something better The terminological ambiguities make clear that a concise language is not there yet enabling Christians who practice yoga to convey to others that what they are doing is integral to their life of faith and not outside of it The informal low key association of Christian teachers and practitioners of yoga that took shape in the Oak Ridge I retreat continued to evolve in the second gathering as a forum for ongoing networking with one another in our reflections around these and other questions Oak Ridge III May 24 29 2005 The time of the year was not great encompassing the Memorial Day weekend but thirty four people organized their personal family and professional calendars to come anyway Those who gathered almost twice the number at Oak Ridge I gave clear indication of how the network is growing Whereas the previous two retreats had brought together people largely from the East coast states in addition to three Canadian provinces this time California Texas Michigan Minnesota and Bermuda were represented as well There was also a considerable number who wanted to come but weren t able to Bernadette Latin handled administration and logistics with efficiency and grace The evaluations repeatedly expressed appreciation for the morning prayer and evening prayer rituals in the chapel the laying on of hands in blessing of the presenter leader before and after each session the variety of subjects addressed and of teachers and styles in both yoga and discussion sessions the balance of meeting time and free time the beauty of the lake and woodland trails the food and the friendship As one respondent wrote I love basking in the presence of people who ask the same questions and think about the same things that I do Some of the questions being How do I take this off the mat To what extent can we embrace the roots of yoga without compromising our faith How do we present this to the Christian community How can I communicate the gospel and God s love in my teaching How best to be a Christian presence in the yoga community These were the kinds of questions addressed in the plenary sessions on Yoga and a Sacramental Perspective on Life Embodying the Practice in Our Living The Yamas Niyamas and the Spiritual Life Yoga and the Beatitudes Different Methods and Forms of Meditation How Do We Respond to the Resistance and Misunderstanding Encountered A new and appreciated addition to the programming was workshops on a variety of topics such as Lectio Divina an ancient form of praying with the Scriptures Restorative Yoga as a form of meditation and healing What can a Christian expect from asana and meditation Praying with our senses Passage meditation an invitation to drink deeply of Scripture and of the saints great prayers Least likely to meditate confessions of a career multi tasker The recurring focus on meditation in the workshops highlights an important emphasis in all three Oak Ridge retreats the reconnection of yoga to meditation in Western practice The history and development of yoga makes clear that it was originally designed to help people enter into a conscious experience of communion with God in meditation In other words these two consciousness disciplines were originally Siamese twins with bodies joined together at birth but in the practice of many they have been separated and live independent lives sometimes never seeming to meet at all Such a restoration of the fullness of yogic practice would be a gain for practitioners of every stripe and contribute to the health and balance of these disciplines themselves A clear and significant fruit for the wider world emanating from Oak Ridge III is the creation of this website Christians practicing yoga With this new instrument of communication the network can connect continents and grow by quantum leaps We are all indebted to participant Keri Mangis who stepped forward and made it possible Participants at this third gathering also discussed the possibility of a national conference For synopses of the publications mentioned in this article with links to where they can be obtained see http www tomryancsp org books htm Oak Ridge IV July 22 27 2008 After every other year retreats in 2001 2003 and 2005 we did not organize one for 2007 because one of our network members in the Midwest felt ready to take a run at organizing a national conference in 2007 and we didn t want to put people in a position of having to choose one or the other In the end the national conference project proved premature so we scheduled Oak Ridge IV for 2008 The network continues to grow This time 40 people came together from 18 states three provinces of Canada and the island of Bermuda Dayna Gelinas from Georgia made it all possible by handling the administrative end of things including coordinating travel an increasing challenge as the web of participants expands Feedback from earlier retreats enabled us to strike a more pleasing balance than ever between time in formal structured activities and time for rest and relaxed informal sharing amongst ourselves whether sitting on the raft in the middle of the lake or walk n talks on the woodland trails Each day s flow pattern early morning yoga and meditation quiet breakfast followed by some personal time communal morning prayer mid morning plenary presentation some free time following lunch a variety of mid afternoon workshops to choose from late afternoon yoga and meditation an evening plenary presentation a review of the day in small groups and night prayer Every other day the workshops were replaced by a longer period of personal time in the afternoon Participants who wanted to offer something like restorative yoga during that time were welcome to do so for the benefit of those interested Earlier in the year preceding the retreat people in the network were canvassed as to what topics they wanted to discuss and or had an interest in presenting The result was a good balance between on the one hand deepening our theological reflection on some important topics and on the other hand listening to reports from the field from those working the edge of new frontiers such as teaching yoga to prisoners and to trauma survivors the healing aspects of yoga culture privilege and its impact on our work or the evolving shape of teacher training programs for Christ centered yoga The topics that elicited a deepening theological reflection also spanned a wide range the theology of human bodiliness the convergence of yoga s ethical code and Christ s teachings the chakras and physical spiritual anatomy yogic enlightenment and Trinitarian faith chanting the nature of the life force pranayama and faith in Christ Holy Spirit One evening was dedicated to looking together at how we might more effectively network with one another in an ongoing way throughout the year and optimize use of this website which is being accessed from countries around the world on all continents One of the ideas emerging from this discussion was that of regional retreats organized and led by network participants from that region in the years between our continental gatherings The mid Atlantic group moved quickly to do exactly that reserving a place for a weekend event in November 2009 see the Upcoming Events page People left feeling energized connected and supported Let the Spirit work Oak Ridge V at Graymoor July 13 18 2010 In 2009 the Green Acres Foundation of the state of New Jersey purchased the Oak Ridge property and buildings all of which became Mount Paul State Park in June 2010 As the transfer was taking place in the summer of 2010 it became necessary for our network of Christian teachers of yoga to find a fitting new location for our bi annual retreat We decided to hold it at the Graymoor Spiritual Center in Garrison NY which also sits atop a forested mountain As an indication however that the content and style of the gathering would be in continuity with the Oak Ridge retreats we called it Oak Ridge V at Graymoor In spite of the worst economic recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s thirty five teachers from15 states and two provinces of Canada GA NJ MD TX OR CA PA NY MI CT VA MN DC VT AL ON QC prioritized the time and resources to participate The daily schedule of the retreat honed from the feedback received on evaluations of the previous four remained virtually the same as at Oak Ridge IV where participants had expressed positive appreciation for the balance between time on the mat and in discussion reflection sessions as well as with morning and evening communal prayer and with the opportunity for some quiet personal time each day Several times in different contexts appreciation was expressed for the difference between a conference and a retreat with the acknowledgement that these gatherings have found a pleasing way to successfully integrate and hold together in one event components of both Some of the themes in plenary sessions and workshops this time around were Seva and Christian Service Breathwork in a Christ centered Context A Christian s Conversation with Patanjali Yoga and Religion Addressing the Fears Yoga Ethics and Christ s Commandments Yoga Sutras and Scripture In addition to serious discussion and reflection the group also demonstrated a marvelous capacity just to have fun together most notably in what has become a tradition of these gatherings a Show and Tell night where each one is invited to sing a song tell a story play an instrument share some poetry lead a circle or line dance and the like Clearly however what participants cherished the most was simply the opportunity to connect or reconnect with one another Thirteen of the 35 were first timers Among them were three teachers from the Holy Yoga training school headquartered in Arizona and the creator of Christian Yoga International in Minnesota One of the sessions provided a forum for discussion on ways of creating a larger more inclusive network wherein the teachers would have an enhanced opportunity for sharing of resources and mutual enrichment After serving as convener and co organizer for five retreats over 10 years time I felt it was time for me to pass the baton to new leadership Kevin Flynn an Anglican priest and theology professor at St Paul s University in Ottawa generously accepted to serve the network in that role and to carry things forward He will be working with Dayna Gelinas who has done a wonderful job of handling the administrative side of things for the last two retreats and who graciously offered to continue doing so And one of the representatives of the Holy Yoga network of teachers who has considerable experience working with websites Andre Daley offered his services in helping us
