An Introduction to Ignatian Yoga
Today we celebrate the work of our friends at Ignatian yoga. What follows is an introduction to their work and philosophy. More information about this community can be found at their website, IgnationYoga.com
“Ignatian Yoga grew out of a lived experience of bringing together practices from both Ignatian Spirituality and Yoga philosophy. Ignatian yoga works to maintain the integrity of each of these rich traditions while also exploring ways in which the integration of the two can deepen and nuance the understanding of the spiritual life.”
