What Yoda and Yoga Have in Common -or- Becoming Yoda
My family and I were introduced to YOGA over the holidays, and we were instantly hooked. No, that is not my husband and me in the picture, though I sort of wish it were. (I opted not to post a picture of myself in a yoga pose, because I don’t want you to click away from my blog).
Since then, I’ve heard every YODA joke imaginable. For example:
“Where’d you put the Yoga DVD?” “Ah . . . take you to it, I will.”
As I press forward in the new year with my exercise routine, I’ve noticed I relax while doing those stretches. Not only am I working out, I’m slowing down (another New Year’s resolution).
So in my frantic attempt to meet goals, I stumbled on the similarities between Yoda and yoga. I mean, OBVIOUSLY Yoda was an avid yoga-er. Think of how calm he was, how thoughtful, how in control.
If I keep this up, I could in fact, become Yoda.
For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8
