Body Prayer: A Moving Meditation
Body Prayer is a God-Centered Yoga practice that embraces the fluid movements of the sun-salutation as a way of offering our whole selves to God, body, mind, and spirit. This particular session of Body Prayer takes place on the afternoon before the Jewish celebration of Passover begins, as well as on the Christian observance of Good Friday. This presents a wonderful opportunity to make this a prayer of thanksgiving, though any form of prayer is encouraged, prayer of praise and adoration, prayer of petition, prayer of contrition, prayer of blessing and others.
Our practice will begin with a moment of silent dedication followed by a few warming postures. After this, we will move into the sun-salutation practice, which consists of four variations progressing from gentle to more challenging and back again for a total of 40 in all. This practice will be as gentle, as challenging, or as moderate as you choose. We will end with a few restorative postures and deep relaxation.
Body Prayer is an all-embracing event; people of all faiths are welcome, and no prior yoga practice is required. Indeed, no prior prayer experience is required either!
