Overview

Although hatha yoga is increasingly popular as a source of spiritual well-being, few Christians have discovered that it is also a unique way to worship God through the ancient practices and disciplines of body prayer. An Invitation to Christian Yoga offers an introduction to the practice of yoga as a Christian discipline of prayer, followed by a series of short exercises that are clearly explained and helpfully illustrated in simple line drawings. Roth provides a short biblical text, often from the psalms, to accompany each exercise as a basis for meditation. This book is ideal for beginners as well as for those who already practice yoga but wish to incorporate it into their life of prayer. Alternative versions of the movements are offered for those of us who are elderly, recovering from illness or injury, or simply less limber than we used to be.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY: Nancy Roth is an Episcopal priest and writer with an ecumenical ministry in spirituality. She draws on her background in music, dance, and theology to offer retreats, workshops, and classes that enable others to discover for themselves the integration of body and spirit.
