Gena Davis shares new spiritual ritual; combines yoga, meditation and Christian beliefs

Yoga has long been associated with the teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism, making many Christians cautious to explore this spiritual path. Reverend Gena Davis believes this distinctive philosophy is one that could actually aid Christians in their search for the divine and enhance their journey of getting to know Christianity. Reverend Davis helps readers find Jesus from the yoga mat in “YogaMass: Embodying Christ Consciousness.”

Davis is a certified Nosara Yoga Interdisciplinary teacher and an ordained Episcopal priest who co-created “YogaMass®,” a spiritual practice that blends yogic teachings with religious reverence. The worship expression merges breath work, meditation, Holy Communion and yoga.

“YogaMass: Embodying Christ Consciousness” is a resource tool that emphasizes the link between yogic principles and Christian theology, while also sharing Davis’s personal spiritual journey. By bridging the two spiritual teachings together, Davis encourages individuals to embrace a path of fulfillment for the whole self, integrating the mind, body, soul, and spirit.

“Yoga is often seen as a physical exercise in Western culture, but is it so much more than that,” Davis said. “In reality, yoga is a science that offers a spiritual path for seeking the divine that Christians and people of all faiths can embrace. YogaMass deepens the experience of being fully human and guides us to a palpable awareness of God’s presence within.”
