Fill me up, Lord

"You will seek me, & find me when you seek me w/ all your heart," God says. But that is not the whole story. I'm not just a searcher. I'm also a hider. You too. We have to come face-to-face w/ our tendency to hide, to get lost. ~John Ortberg, Love Beyond Reason

The Yoga of Fat-Burning?

A local yoga studio just posted the following link -

"Think yoga is just for stretching and toning? Think again! The Top 5 Fat-Burning Yoga Poses! Can yoga help you burn calories and lose weight? Sure it can! Here are five poses to help you burn fat and tackle weight loss with a positive attitude, plus four yoga styles to help you stay fit."

I definitely don't do yoga to burn fat.

I do yoga to quiet my mind & to connect with my body.
Yoga is "prayer in motion" for me.

If fat-burning is an outcome, wonderful.

But, if one focuses on the fat-burning aspect, you miss out on the deeper levels of this amazing practice.

There is so much focus on the external body out in the marketplace.
The yoga studio for me is where I focus on the internal.
Definitely a counter-cultural shift for some.
