An Invitation to Christian Yogaby Nancy Roth, Susan John Mangam (Illustrator)
Although yoga is increasingly popular as a source of spiritual and physical well being, few Christians know that it is also a unique way to worship God through the ancient practices and disciplines of body prayer. Nancy Roth's An Invitation to Christian Yoga offers an introduction to the practice of yoga as a Christian discipline of prayer, followed by simple poses and exercises that are clearly explained and helpfully illustrated by line drawings. Roth offers a short biblical text, often from the psalms, to accompany each pose as basis for meditation.
This book is ideal for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners who wish to incorporate yoga into their life of daily prayer.

This is a wonderful introduction to yoga for any Christian who might be concerned with the historical religious/spiritual connections of yoga. Roth describes some beautiful relationships between the human mind and body and the Creator God, Redeemer Christ, and Sanctifier Spirit. In addition, she walks the reader through a series of exercises, each with a Christian mantra and Psalm verse. The book is laid out in an easy to follow format. The included audio disc goes through the exercises sequences, and the voice is soothing and gentle.
