Why Prayer and Pilates?
While it seems that it should be simple to unite the physical and the spiritual, it often feels like one gets in the way of the other. What if the spiritual practices we use to deepen our intimacy with God (prayer, scripture, worship) can also be incorporated in our bodies to engage our whole being in experiencing God? Prayer and Pilates is one way to practice inviting both of these desperately important parts of our lives to join together in a playful, explorative way.
If we believe that God became flesh, how might we take the incarnation seriously by entering into intimacy with our own bodies?
