The Church Fathers include Gregory Palamas, whose conception of "hesychastic" prayer was very physical and oriented toward breathing a particular way. Christian prayer at the very least should include silence and meditation, without one's mind racing all over the cosmos. I'm not sure that yoga is the way to pursue it, but it is difficult for me as an Orthodox Christian to listen to someone like Seane Corn and identify her attitude inconsistent with Christianity. In many ways, she is closer to Orthodox Christianity than Dr. Mohler and "Bible Christians" seem to be.
