A guide that shows that yoga and Christian faith can be harmonious. As church membership nationwide continues to decline, the number of yoga practitioners continues to steadily increase. What's at the meeting place where the trajectories cross? What can the church learn from the popular success of yoga, and is it problematic to offer yoga in the church? How can churches offer yoga in a way that observes, appreciates, and builds upon the commonalities but which does not conflate the two traditions, each of which has its own integrity? Making the decision to offer yoga in the church requires humility: a confession that Episcopalians-and even Christians-do not hold the exclusive pathway to communion with the divine.
