Laughing Gals Yoga

The following is a guest blog by Cheryl Stripling Wyatt, who is graciously leading Yoga classes Wednesday nights at 6:30 at Spirit Life Church.

When Yoga found me…
…my life was hectic
…my stress level was high
…my mind was busy
…my body felt stiff with aches and pains

Does this sound like any of you? Discovering Yoga was the gate that opened my awareness to the potential of finding the inner peace and solitude that allowed me to ‘slow down’. Through yoga I have learned, and continue to learn each day, the roles that my mind and body share in my day to day activities. Yoga has allowed me to put life’s daily grind into perspective. I have learned to quite my mind so that I can bring awareness to my divine internal voice instead of listening to the static filled world around me.

Most people identify yoga with the pictures of people in contorted positions on the front of yoga magazines. This only represents a small, and might I add, extreme illusion of what yoga truly is. In reality, Yoga is a four layer process of:

  • Physical – What most people practice for
  • Physiological: Internal reflection
  • Connection: Recognizing our connection to the outside world
  • Spiritual: Very personal

What Yoga IS NOT:

Roots

Howdy Y’all!!

Join us in celebrating heritage and foundational principles of our fath, this Sunday at Spirit Life Church!

The corporate gathering on Sunday, March 11th will feature an old-fashioned, full blue grass band for praise and worship led by gospel vocalist Laconda Couch Parks. In addition to this special musical treat, Ps. Ken will kick off his new series, Roots, with a lively discussion of the Rugged Cross.

The cross of Jesus was truly the apex of human existence. It is the place that God demonstrated His unconditional love for us. Calvary is the place where Jesus became a substitutionary sacrifice for us all. This substitution created a situation in which God the Father could be satisfied, reconciling all of mankind to himself!

Our discussion of the rugged cross, its power and its relevancy for today continues this Sunday at Roots.

THE BREAKDOWN:

What: Roots, a new series from Spirit Life Church. The series will kick off Sunday, March 11th with a special Bluegrass worship service and the rugged cross.
