Publisher's Description

People often equate yoga with
Eastern religion, but Brooke Boon
sees it as an exercise style that
Christians can use to generate patience,
strength, and deeper worship.
Author and yoga instructor
Brooke Boon combines her passion
for Christianity with her commitment
to health to introduce yoga as
a physical and spiritual discipline
that strengthens the body and the
soul. Clear explanations and photographs
make yoga accessible for
any reader, and Brooke offers customized
routines for readers struggling
with specific issues, such as
weight loss and anxiety. Through it all Brooke uses scriptural
references to help reinforce the idea that by taking
care of our bodies we can also take care of our faith.

Publisher's Weekly

Evangelical Christians are not often very enthusiastic about yoga, dismissing it as irrelevant at best and Satanic at worst. But for Boon, an Arizona yoga teacher who is the founder of the Holy Yoga ministry, yoga is a worship tool to enhance her relationship with Christ. Although Boon's writing is primitive and breathless, with excessive use of italics and exclamation points, she offers some decent ideas and memorable spiritual quotes from the likes of Eugene Peterson, Lauren Winner and Richard Foster. Boon first outlines the theological reasons for yoga practice, likening it to ancient Christian disciplines like fasting. This section can seem defensive and apologetic at times, as Boon expends energy answering her evangelical critics. Part two briefly highlights yoga as a healthy lifestyle (e.g., it can improve circulation, relieve stress and maintain a healthy weight) and offers tips on incorporating yoga into a neophyte's regular routine. The final, longest section presents various postures, with black-and-white illustrations. However, the instructions are brief and vague enough that Christians who are new to yoga will definitely want to supplement their fledgling practice with more detailed, step-by-step information, such as that contained in traditional yoga books or Susan Bordenkicher's more thorough Yoga for Christians.

    I was apprehensive about yoga because of its affiliation with Hinduism and New Age spirituality yet wanting to gain the benefits of the stretching and toning. Ms. Boon patiently and gently explains that yoga itself is a tool used for physical and spiritual purposes; she often compares it to fasting. As a tool, it can be used for ill or for good. The DVD itself is good for beginners like me: slowly moving through the poses, offering modifications for various abilities.FYI: she does offer a level II DVD

    Love the book. I've had some experience with yoga already, but it is great to have a book to recall poses. It does help to have first hand experience with the book. Her video is great along with the second one I ordered. I hope she makes more.

    This is a wonderful program. The book is informative though the drawings are a bit funny! Brooke has one work out that is a beginner level but she works with Yogis on the screen and makes sure to be clear and concise on her instructions. The Bible verses and applications are spoken softly with soft music in the background. A wonderful Christ focused workout. I Hope she does a Holy Yoga II!
