YOGA UNCOILED : From East to West A look into the practice of Yoga in the Church Many believe they can practice yoga postures, breathing, and focusing techniques devoid of yoga's spirituality, not realizing that yoga is an inherent part of Hindu philosophy which teaches man and nature are one with divinity. Today, yoga is experiencing a worldwide renaissance and in America has more than 70,000 yoga teachers working in 20,000 locations. Although viewed primarily as fitness instructors, these trainers are in reality the leading missionaries of eastern religion in the west. The twenty-seven billion dollar a year yoga industry is marketed to students, athletes, businessmen, pregnant women and senior citizens promising solutions for stress reduction, concentration problems, and issues of self confidence. Once viewed by Christians as a pagan import from the East, yoga has now become mainstream in the church through "Christ-centered yoga classes" designed to help improve spirituality and experience "the presence of God". But is yoga's mysticism compatible with historic Christianity? Video-journalist Caryl Matrisciana, who was born and raised in India, returns to her native land to search for truth among India's leading experts and examines what Christian Yoga practitioners in the West are saying about their Yoga participation. With critical discernment, this hard-hitting and informative DVD explores the ramifications of dismissing yoga's core spirituality, and blending Biblical terminology and precepts with eastern meditative techniques and practices.
"Yoga as a form of meditation, as a way of living, as a way of improving is nothing but a deceptive way to deny Christ and accept the power of the demons! Any form of mediation comes from ancient India, and are ancient hindu waysof preparing the soul for death and nothing more. Guru have changed their traditional way to manipulate, convince and decept naive and fouls from the West with their demonic powers. A guru is considering himself greater than GOD because throughout him you can achieve illumination. Reincarnation is not real, is a pagan demonic form of possesion and as hindus say is a curse hard to bear. Yoga is a modern Pagan Religion and their ultimate purpose is (beside making the guru's very rich) to enslave all population through deception, in it's ultimate form: The New Age. Miraculous healings, powers, levitation, materialization of matter are forms of demonic manifestation and those exposed to it are in terrible danger."

TM wants youAuthentic enlightenment
Authentic Enlightenment tells the story of Vail Carruth. She devoted herself intensely to Transcendental Meditation (also known as TM) seeking for answers in life. She studied directly under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and advanced to the point of teaching this practice. Then Vail received an experience of ultimate reality that changed the course of her life. In her own words, Vail Carruth explains,"Although it did seem to relax me, something didn't seem quite right. The peace I attained was one of emptiness rather than of fullness. My spiritual journey took a new direction when I began to call on the Name above all names. It was only then that I finally experienced a personal knowledge of God, the kiss of God." (traduction)
