Mornings with Yoga and Scripture
We are under pressure each day to do a list of stuff...go to work, clean the house, scoop the litter box, care for the kids and volunteer at church. Somewhere we need to find time to care for our body and mind. How about opening each day with a half hour of simple yoga poses and meditation on scripture. Pick some of your favorite poses starting and matching a favorite scripture verse with each pose. As you practice a pose repeat the scripture. You might also meditate or think about each scripture verse as you practice. When you design your practice, start with easier poses working toward the harder ones. End your time with some prayer in a seated pose.
You might also try saying the Lord's Prayer as you perform the Sun Salutation.

I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
