Free from the whole ‘is yoga a religion’ debate, more folks of varying creeds are finding ways to weave asana and even yoga philosophy into their own belief systems. Like applesauce to a potato latke, Bibliyoga is a pretty interesting take on the yoga/Jewish mashup. Yoga teacher Marcus J Freed does his own Kosher Sutra study, emphasizing the body and soul connection, along with ancient Jewish texts.
We don’t pretend to be yogafied theology experts, ahem, but if we were skeptical of yoga and religion uniting in harmony, this seems like a damn good way of smooshing the two, especially for those otherwise turned off.
Whether or not your Holy Land lies in the East or on your own mat, we appreciate that everyone can embrace the practice of yoga. Na-ma-sta-zel Tov!
