Last week hundreds of women, including myself, excitedly ushered the Red Rocks Church Lakewood Campus for the annual Be.Loved Conference. In a span of 24 hours we were inspired by God, the speakers, worship team, skits and oodles of volunteers. My life is forever changed when I am expectant and open to growing in my faith at events like this.
I took copious notes as Lisa Bevere and Emma Bryant revealed loving truth about living out faith and the unique powers we possess as women. Women are God’s first intimate solution to God's creation’s first problem: lonely man seeks servant helper, insert Eve! Women also have the ability to alter our environments with the fragrance of courageous faith that’s often met with high cost and criticism. But it was when Jill Johnson began to define what the word “soul” is that I immediately knew I needed to incorporate it into a Frogpose Yoga flow. Have you ever really thought about your soul and what it means? I guess I haven’t and God gave me a wonderful education. She explained that the soul (Hebrew Nephesh) is the seat of your emotions, desires, and personality.
Seat? YES, that’s it! I need a powerful place for these qualities to sit. Chair Pose is forever going to be called “Soul Pose”. Chair Pose kna Soul Pose is a standing pose that requires the strength of quadriceps, inner thighs, core and upper back; a literal seat of power. With knees bent, like sitting in a chair, lean into the heels slightly, lift the biceps by the ears and BREATH/NEPHESH.
Rest assured that when you walk into a FROG Pose yoga class you will not only come away with a heightened sense of physical well-being but the confidence that you haven't compromised your Christian faith. We are prayerful that each class will offer an insight towards healthier living and that a healing within your body happens in each 60 minutes class. We thank you for your financial support as we continue offering free yoga classes in hopes of reaching more of our local community's craving for something more than just a free yoga class.
Join us this week as we practice a moving meditation on the word of God by flowing through many physical postures including the new and improved Soul Pose.
