Where To Find The Best Christian Yoga Retreats

Those Christians who appreciate the physical exercises of yoga, but do not want to engage in the traditional spiritual exercises of it will be glad to know that there are Christian yoga retreats available. These retreats can take place at most any retreat center but are best lead by someone who has been trained in the physical exercises of yoga but incorporates Christian scripture and meditation into the exercises for the building up of the spirit, mind, and body of the whole person in a group harmony supported setting.

What differentiates Christian yoga from traditional yoga is the substitution of the Christian emphasis on using peace generating and meditation inspiring scriptures during the exercises with the goal of glorifying God in your bodies as well as your minds during the physical exercises. So the physical goals and exercises are very much the same, but the spiritual focus during the exercises is quite a bit different. The goal is to unite with the Holy Spirit at the same time you are repairing and renewing the temple of the Holy Spirit which is your body.

At these yoga retreats for Christians you will partake in the same tremendous benefits of yoga which encompass flexibility, strength building, weight loss, and stress release. While making one exercising pose after another you will focus through meditation on the peace, joy, love, goodness, healing, and strength renewing power of God. Disciplining your mind to quiet down and focus upon the things of God you will open your heart to God and watch His peace, joy, love, goodness and His healing and strengthening presence start to expand into every area of your being.

During some retreats you can practice yoga all day if you desire. The sessions are devoted to healthy eating (if it is not a yoga fasting retreat), postures, breathing and balancing poses. The combinations of breathing, meditation, and postures relax and stretch the body while calming the mind. All this supports added flexibility throughout the body, better coordination, agility, and balance, better circulation, relaxation and reduction of stress. It lowers blood pressure, reduces pressure on joints and the spinal disc thus reducing osteoarthritis and degenerative disc damage. It also promotes elimination of waste products from muscles, improves posture, keeps joints lubricated, assists in weight loss, helps injuries heal faster, promotes greater awareness of muscles, and minimizes lower back pain.

Some retreat facilities make spa offerings available to Christians also. At these facilities Christians can help themselves to aromatherapy, stone massages, facials, salt scrubs and hydrotherapy. Some retreat centers even have Christian fasting retreat programs with the added benefits of colonics to clean out your system with the added help of bentonite clay and psyllium husks. You are supported during the fast with minimal nutritional supplements and end it with a liver flush. When you finish all that you'll be so relaxed, and you will feel like a trillion dollars. You will feel the physical, spiritual, and psychological benefits for many weeks afterwards.

People of all ages can enjoy a Christian yoga retreat. Beginning classes are tailored for all fitness levels. Many older people can benefit from the increased flexibility they will attain. Obviously not all of us can bend like a pretzel, but there is something for nearly everyone. Get away from your hectic life for a weekend or a week. Can't spare that? Take a class at home if it is available or start a class yourself after getting the training. You'll feel better, more relaxed, and improve your health and flexibility. The Bible says: "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall rise up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."

Rhonda Jones, a Christian meditation and yoga instructor, hosts a yearly Christian meditation and yoga retreat in the beautiful Mount Shasta area located in northern California. Each morning participants practice yoga to scriptures and contemporary gospel and worship music. Christian yoga helps believers to slow down while at the same time providing a wonderful strength and flexibility workout. Many believers are using Christian yoga to connect with God on a more spiritual level. According to Jones, Christian yoga is so much more than exercise. For many believers, it may be one of the few times during the week that they actually become still long enough to begin to hear and recognize the still, small, voice of God in their heart. The breathing and postures associated with Christian yoga are to prepare the body for meditation or fellowship with God. In addition to Christian yoga, Jones, at the Be Still Christian Meditation Retreat also teaches believers a variety of Christian meditation techniques including soaking in God’s presence, scripture meditation, Christian mantra meditation, and guided Christian meditation. Meditation is a wonderful tool for renewing our minds and abiding in God’s presence. The four day and three night retreat is offered annually in the summer months. Cost can be affordable and easy monthly payment plans are available. To learn more visit the meditation link icon on the left hand menu below where you can buy something downloadable from Rhonda that will save you even more money than you would have to pay if you attended one of the yoga retreats for Christians that Rhonda hosts. You can follow her instructions in the comfort of your home and save a lot of money versus attending a Christian yoga retreat. But if you have the extra cash then consider a Christian yoga retreat hosted by Rhonda.
