I’m addicted to wasting my time
So I seriously have a question for any yogis/Catholics.
Do you think yoga goes against any Catholic beliefs?
I was talking to a friend about a week ago and somehow yoga was brought up and I admitted to practicing it. She gave me kind of a disturbed look and asked what faith I practiced, so when I said I was Catholic, she asked me why I did yoga…I was confused.
But anyway, she told me that some poses resemble different gods and different beliefs, which goes against Catholicism. I’m neither a die-hard Catholic or yogi, so I have no idea. Apparently clearing your mind is blocking God from coming to you and some other stuff.
I asked a few people about it and no one really gave me a clear answer or opinion….
I feel that practicing a religion doesn’t just mean going to church or praying, but also incorporating your soul along with your body. Youknow, the whole body and soul thing. I believe in God, I pray, I go to church, but I also do yoga. I do yoga because I find it as a great way to exercise and clear my mind. I mean….I see it as a workout, not a religion..? I don’t know how to explain it, but I just hope someone could shed some light on this whole situation?
