Why Christians Shouldn’t Yoga


Todd Tomasella: “Yoga means to yoke. Yoking with demons! We take His yoke, it’s easy. His burden is light. Thanks brother!” Angela Alatorre

YOGA is a cheap substitute for the real thing. Yoga can’t forgive your sins or remove the anguish, grief, and shame associated with sin. Jesus is the Prince of peace and without Him there is no peace. Only Jesus can do that! Only Jesus saves. Only Jesus redeems. Only Jesus heals. Only Jesus forgives. Only Jesus cleanses the conscience and grants eternal life!

You are a sinner in need of God’s forgiveness.

God made our bodies to breath automatically. There’s no need not learn how to breathe better. In fact, you may be breathing in demons and becoming demon possessed. The need is for repentance for the forgiveness of sins and to prepare to meet our Maker.

What is Yoga?

Simply put: Yoga means yoking. Yoga is the bringing in of evil spirits from the enemy of all souls via exercise. Exercise is the catch. The Bible tells us that “bodily exercise profiteth little.” There is a “little” profiting to “bodily exercise.” Since most of us don’t get much exercise during our work day, we utilize gyms etc., to get that exercise. In doing so, Satan is capitalizing on this phenomenon – he’s crept in unawares to beguile and possess as many as possible.

Douglas R. Groothuis, Professor of Philosophy at Denver Seminary and a respected specialist on the New Age Movement, warns Christians that yoga is not merely about physical exercise or health. “All forms of yoga involve occult assumptions,” he warns, “even hatha yoga, which is often presented as a merely physical discipline.” While most adherents of yoga avoid the more exotic forms of ritualized sex that are associated with tantric yoga, virtually all forms of yoga involve an emphasis on channeling sexual energy throughout the body as a means of spiritual enlightenment.

Deceitfully Crouched in Innocence

Yoga is just another typical age old deception repackaged.

“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:6

Yoga is like what is called “whidevilste magic” or “good witches.” No such thing as good or godly magic or witches. They are all from the dark side and therefore in opposition to the light of Jesus Christ who is the light of the world (John 8:12). Such deceptive terms are used by “seducing spirits (demons)” to cloak their evil agenda in order to ensnare the gullible.

“The word yoga is problematic. Yoga means ‘to yoke.’ … using the word begs the question, ‘Yoked to whom?’ …the postures and techniques of yoga were designed to be offerings to the millions of Hindu gods. But ultimately, yoga was intended to yoke a person to the so-called ‘Lord of Yoga’ – Sheva, the destroyer. …these realities make yoga, regardless of how it’s packaged, incompatible with Christianity.”

“Yes…Amen! He (Jesus) is our Peace. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you….” (John 14:27)” Eliset Igat


“I meditate on God’s Word and not sitting like that— it looks demonic.” Valencia Hargrave

“So, what you are saying is that a huge portion of those saying they are saved are going to church on Sunday and are like swinging half-dressed from the rafters during the week! And they call that the narrow road!!! Just like the world, in their mind there is no such thing as an abomination because if it fits their fancy it has to be okay. HOWEVER, THE LORD SAYS AND WILL TREAT YOGA, BREATH PRAYERS, CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER, ALL OF IT AS AN ABOMINATION! His thoughts are not our thoughts, His are much higher. We are not to take on the practices of eastern religion—or any other for that matter. Why? Because it is all Satan’s power, not the Lord’s. Every other religion was begun under the influence of Satan himself to draw men away from Christ, the only one who could save them and give them eternal life. And he, Satan, provides them with all kinds of practices and experiences to keep them on his line— away from the true and living God, the one and only God, the only way to Heaven.” Karen Graves

A Fresh Start With God

“Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” Ezekiel 18:31

Christ quote

“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.” Ezekiel 36:26-27

New Creatures in Christ

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18

Fresh Forgiveness

“Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.” Lamenations 3:19-26

Fresh Oil

“But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.” Psalms 92:10

Are you in need of a fresh beginning? Are you genuinely open to and ready to hear and obey the truth in order to be blessed with a new beginning? If so, keep reading, open your whole heart, and get ready to be blessed.

1. Schedule God into your very waking moments for prayer communion and the study of His Word (Ps. 5:3; 63:1; Mk. 1:35). He is the Cornerstone of your day and life.

2. Study God’s Word diligently: Get blank index cards and get ready to begin capturing God’s Word and memorizing it (Prov. 4:4, 21; Jn. 5:39; 2 Tim. 2:15). Carry those Scriptures on index cards where ever you go and read, meditate and memorize them. Feed on God’s Word (1 Pet. 2:2).

3. Get a King James Bible and discard all artificial, supposedly “easy to understand” counterfeit, corrupt Bible versions. See “Bible Versions” page at http://www.SafeGuardYourSoul.com

4. Confess, repent of, and forsake all known sins before the LORD, beginning with the sin of not placing the LORD first in your life (Exod. 20:3-4; Prov. 28:13; 1 Jn. 1:9).

5. Be resolved in the truth that you have been granted a whole new life and that you are not your own but the LORD’s who bought you with His precious blood (Acts 20:28; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; 2 Cor. 5:17-18).

6. Daily expect persecution, suffering, testings, and trials for the Word’s sake (Mk. 4:17; 2 Tim. 3:12; James 1:2-4; 1 Pet. 4:12).

7. Communicate the Gospel of Jesus to others in everyway that you possible can. Number your short days on this earth and redeem or buy back for lost time (Ps. 90:12; Eph. 5:16). Ask the LORD to make you fruitful in His eternal kingdom and that your fruit will remain (Ps. 2:8; Jn. 15:16).

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10
