TD Jakes’ wife shares photos of yoga session at The Potter’s House

You may perform the moves without consciously seeking the demonic trance they were designed to help you attain, but it would seem you are playing, quite literally, with fire. And then the question is why?”

(Leonardo Blair – Christian Today)  Serita Jakes, wife of popular televangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes, has shared a series of photos showing members of a women’s group at The Potter’s House of Dallas enjoying a “taste of yoga” as a part of a healthy living endeavor, despite traditional Christian opposition to yoga.

“Today, we aspired to inspire #health mentally, emotionally, and physically. Our ladies even got a taste of #yoga from @Mrs_BrittHall. Health goes beyond what you eat. It’s in the way you think, speak, and live. Thank you to all of the lovely sister girls that came to play with us! I love you. #AspireToInspire #W2W#EmotionalWellnessMatters,” Jakes wrote in a post on Instagram that was also shared on other social media platforms such as Facebook.

The post sparked debate with critics saying it’s wrong for Christians to practice yoga.

In defense, an Instagram user named Cecilia Echevarria, who indicated she participated in the event, said it was “very inspiring.” View article →
