Scripture Mastery Yoga

Be limber--use one a day, or run the whole thing for about an hour yoga session, but stretch a little first--my knees got creaky. Just in case you need the passages. All thanks go to AP for helping me make this work!

Matthew 5:14-16 - Raised Hands pose (light of the world)
Matthew 6:24 - Opposite Hand/Head stretch (switch at "or else")
Matthew 16:15-19 - Knee hold (switch at "Thou art Peter"--if needed, use a chair)
Matthew 25:40 - Pose of offering (raised hands--into backbend)
Luke 24:36-39 - Prayer hands at heart
John 3:5 - Happy Baby or Side push mountain
John 7:17 - Mountain
John 10:16 - 5 pointed star (spread eagle)
John 14:15 - Goddess Squat (10 Commandments)
John 17:3 - Moon Pose (orbit through the verse)
Acts 7:55-56 - Extended side angle (a verse per side)
Romans 1:16 - Warrior 1
1 Corinthians 10:13 - Chair Pose
1 Corinthians 15:20-22 - Tree pose
1 Corinthians 15:29 - Reverse Warrior
1 Corinthians 15:40-42 - Sun Salute (easier variation)
Ephesians 4:11-14 - Eagle (for unity--just hands for those who aren't that limber)
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 - Shiva Twist (Shiva isn't a Son of Perdition, but is crazy enough to seem off-kilter)
2 Timothy 3:1-5 - Wide-legged, forward bend (navel-gazing--toes in, heels out)
2 Timothy 3:16-17 - Warrior 2
Hebrews 5:4 - Toe Touch (Aaron bowed before the Lord)
James 1:5-6 - Triangle pose (reach up to God)
James 2:17-18 - Strong Armed Mountain (Left arm to the square=faith, Right arm to the square=works)
Revelation 14:6-7 - Bound Forward fold (arms in back are the wings of the Angel)
Revelation 20:12-13 - Corpse pose

Here is my little poster (I can email it to you if you want a pdf):

Oh hilarious reverence. The "switch at OR ELSE," the shiva off kilter, and of course the corpse pose to illustrate those great revelations scrips.

My favorite from just looking it over has GOT to be that bowing angel and the " you can only do so much" explanation.....if I'm remembering it right.

So clever. This is going to spread like wildfire.

You gals are too cute! I want to come to class sometime, but I don't think I could survive the drive that early in the morning. You are going to be an awesome teacher for them!
