Scripture tells us that our body is a temple. We glorify God with our bodies when we incorporate faith and physical activities.

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Christians turn to yoga to add yet another layer to their spiritual life because it offers physical activity, mediation, and quality time with God all in one. For centuries Yoga has been an activity embraced by many faith traditions, including Christianity. Read more about why yoga is and can be important to Christians. We are formed in so many ways.

Even if you have never tried yoga before, I encourage you to grab a mat (or something soft), find a quiet space, and enjoy this Meet Jesus on Your Yoga Mat YouTube series.

Katie Mansfield is Summer Assistant for Faith Formation to the Diocese of West Missouri.
