Profound differences between Yoga & Wholyspoves
Wholyspoves is a spiritually healthy fitness practice in which we pray in humbleness to God. We listen to Godly praise music that Honors Him and we move our body to scripture linked postures.
WHOLYSPOVES is so much more peaceful, positive, and uplifting than yoga. The Word of God used in WHOLYSPOVES always builds people up.
Yoga is evident and not uplifting. Yoga makes you live in solitude and alone. There are no Biblical scriptures to encourage us. All postures done represent hindu God’s. It even detaches you from your family as it makes you isolated
In a WHOLYSPOVES class, the participants feel connected with fellow Believers. They have had a real encounter with the God of the Bible, through His Word, and His Holy Spirit.
Yoga focuses on the Self, which separates us from others. While purporting to make connections, it actually does the exact opposite. The “good feelings” that come from yoga are a mirage. The closer you look, the more the image disappears into nothingness.
WHOLYSPOVES supports the biblical teachings that God is the Creator, and we, His creation, have been made to worship and obey Him, experience healing, and have an eternal relationship with Him.
Yoga (“Union with Self”) practice comes directly from a main branch of Hindu religion, which teaches that everything is God. There is no distinction between the Creator and Man. “Man is God.” Yoga is the vehicle for the supposed realization that “man is God.”
WHOLYSPOVES is the Word of God, it will never contradict the Word of God. WHOLYSPOVES always points to the Word of God, which does have the power to save souls, and the power to renew the mind and body.
Yoga is always destined to fail miserably in its fundamental purpose. Yoga practices can be very harmful as well. It’s physically, spiritually, and emotionally harmful. Yoga was always meant to be imparted by a teacher who stayed with the student for long periods of time. Constantly monitoring, constantly instructing, constantly observing the student.
The Indian gurus who teach yoga are always in a disciple/devotee relationship with their students. This is because yoga can be a very dangerous practice.
Peaceful, faithful, Bible believers avoid any practice that appears to elevate the self, rather than worshiping the Creator, the God of the Bible.
WHOLYSPOVES is a spiritually healthy fitness practice, in which we pray in humbleness to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob…. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. We recite and memorize His Word as found in scriptures from the Bible.
We listen to godly praise music that honors Him.
Yoga means “Union with Self.” In Hinduism “The Knowing of the Self” is the pinnacle of all possible attainments, which promises freedom from suffering and freedom from reincarnation. Hinduism teaches that ‘Self’, in its highest state of consciousness is omnipotent, omniscient, and having all power.
Ancient Hindu teachings can be traced back all the way to the Fall in the Garden of Eden, and are directly related to the false promise that serpent/satan made to Adam & Eve, “You can be like God!”
Most people are unaware that each yoga posture [asana] is a religious act of offering praises to Hindu gods. i.e. Shiva, Suriya, Vishnu, Hanuman & Krishna.
Revered Guru Swami S. Saraswathi said that one’s own “Personal guru is required for all yoga practice. A guru gives guidance and support for the spiritual experiences of the Yoga Disciple. If this guidance is not obtained, it is very easy to end up in a mental hospital or prison.
“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
Book of Proverbs 22:6
