First, let me clarify that I am not Catholic. My Dad was raised in the Catholic Church, went to a Catholic school etc etc...our neighbors are Catholic...
I am curious as to your thoughts and opinions on this topic.
The write of the post was questioning the practice of Yoga (not any other exercise/fitness regimen) as a Catholic because of it's roots in Hinduism. She had an incredibly well-researched post that included many Catholic writings.
The results were CRAZY! People quoting Scriptures to support or oppose the topic. People talking about demon possession...
And so, as a non-denominational Christian, who does yoga poses during my Wii Fit routine, I ask you:
Should we practice an exercise program that has origins in a religion that has over 350 MILLION gods? Should we, then, practice Pilate, which was formed on a regimen that Ancient Romans used to do as priests and acolytes to their gods?
I'm just curious to know what you all think. My Mom is fervently against anything that has roots or any connection to anything pagan, or spiritualistic. I'm a bit waffly about I suppose.
Please...tell me what you think and why!
