Christian yoga: Trading ’om’ for ’amen’

Since I was in college I've been told that I was a healer.  From the lady who felt my hands while on vacation in the Carribean to the reiki healer who told me that if I don't use my gift that it will literally burn inside of me.  I've studied reiki, ashstanga yoga, intuituve cooking, and as of late I'm studying nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and taking bible classes at night.  I choose not to limit my views on healing and my gift to others is the ability assist in healing the whole body, mind, and spirit.  With that said I saw this article on Christian yoga and wanted to see what some folks think.  I don't think I am less of a believer in Christ because I practice yoga.  Some disagree.  Your thoughts?

Thank you, Germaine for sharing that article! I agree with the thought that God created my body to move and I only worship Him and He knows my heart. I also think it depends on the class though, if you're chanting and praising a bunch of Hindu gods, well, then that is a problem for Christ followers.
