Engagement. Alignment. Gaze.
Engagement is crucial. We are not called to just do the physical work of service but also to immerse ourselves in relationship. Smile. Talk. Offer assistance. Introduce yourself and ask names. Engagement is real; it is tangible.
By seeking to be the Body of Christ in the world off of our mats, we are also aligning ourselves with the Holy Spirit's call on our lives. At the same time, we collaborate with fellow Holy Yoga instructors and other believers actively working toward a Kingdom community in the here and now.
Equally important to engagement and alignment is a focus, a centered attention: our gaze. We first cast our eyes on Christ, and what naturally follows is a commitment and a yearning for that Kingdom community.
