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.

The Rev. Susan W. Springer, Sirena Dudgeon

Susan was ordained to the priesthood in December 2009 after a varied career in the Alaskan oilfield and as a small businesswoman. She is the author of four children's books and an adult non-fiction. She served on the board of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation and lectures in various clergy formation programs. She lives in Longmont, Colorado. SIRENA DUDGEON is a long-time student of asana and meditation practice with Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Trainings as an E-RYT 200, RYT 500, and YACEP Trainer..
