Last Christmas I remember talking to family in the States and saying that there was a danger that American Christians will end up doing yoga in their church services.
I'm sure I sounded crazy for saying that, but today I heard an mp3 of Rob Bell teaching yoga in his church in America.
25 minutes into the teaching, whilst everyone is breathing deeply (as per Rob's instructions) Rob says,
"In yoga, one of the central tenants of yoga is your breath needs to remain the same, regardless of the pose...in yoga one of the things you learn right away.. its can you keep your breath consistent through whatever you're doing. And the yoga masters say this is how it is when you follow Jesus and surrender to God..."
