One amazing thing about a relationship with Jesus is that we can talk and listen to Him anywhere, whether we're sitting at a table, taking a walk, or driving the car.  If you're like me, you might find it hard to sit down for your daily devotionals without getting distracted or dozing off (yes, I've SO done that).

Here's where I've found yoga an amazing tool:  yoga postures and breathing techniques keep me focused on Christ during Scripture reading, meditation, and prayer. It's not just aboutthe inner focus, either: There are postures that unite the body with the inner heart during prayer and meditation. For example, if we take the ACTS model of prayer:
​​ A - Adoration:
High Mountain (Tadasana) brings the hands to the sky, sending the heart upwards in praise of the Almighty Father.
C - Confession:
Forward Fold (Uttanasana) folds the body, as if to bow, allowing the heart to bring sin to the Lord in repentance.
​​ T - Thanksgiving: Hands to heart (Anjali Mudra) brings the hands to prayer position. Practiced with calm breathing, this posture can help bring our awareness to the blessings God has given us.
S - Supplication: Child's Pose (Balasana) elicits vulernability, as one's knees and head are on the floor, preparing the heart to pray for th needs of others and yourself.
