Yoga was first introduced to me by a dear friend who had just entered the novitiate of contemplative nuns. When I commented this to my spiritual director, he got me a copy of Fr. Jean Marie Dechanet's OSB "Christian Yoga in 10 lessons", founder of the first Christian ashram in India. It has changed my life. Recently the Centering Prayer movement has become very popular world-wide, based on Fr. Thomas Merton's life and works. I find that Fr. DeChanet's work and CP are practically one and the same. A great blessing for all humans and the creation that surrounds all of us.
