I would like to introduce myself and my unique ministry. My name is Alicia Cossota and I’ve lived in Estes Park for almost 8 years. My ministry name is Yoga and The Word; Christ centered yoga classes offered under my company name Zoomet Yoga, LLC.
I began teaching secular yoga with the classical Eastern influence in 2010. My initial training was with Sunstone Yoga in Texas; a 500 hour training program. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching, however, I realized that the Eastern influence wasn’t congruent with my Christian faith. In 2017 I became certified to teach faith based yoga through Holy Yoga LLC and furthered that education through their Master Certification program.
Yoga and The Word is movement through prayer, meditation and breath work for believers and non-believers. Yoga and The Word is for every one and every body regardless of age, race, denomination, or even physical health level. Yoga and The Word classes are different from a typical yoga class. While the yoga postures are the same, the format differs. Yoga and The Word opens and closes with a short prayer and has a theme for the class which is scripture based. As an example, a class theme recently of "Balance" used scriptures Isaiah 28:24, Psalm 23:2 and Ecclesiastes 3. Soft Christian instrumental music is played in the background for a soothing effect during the meditative and relaxation poses.
Yoga is not a religion; it is a practice of mind and body connection. When lead by scripture and prayer, it is a practice that encourages patience and cultivates an understanding of what God can manifest in our physical and emotional bodies. When we can distance ourselves from the daily grind and find peace in worshiping with our whole being, we find ourselves in the flow of His magnificence and in the midst of His grace.
