Sister Margaret Perron, a Religious of Jesus and Mary, trades her habit and rolls out her mat for Father Tom Ryan's yoga and Christian meditation class at St. Paul's College in Washington.
Carefully choreographed yoga-prayers allow participants to "embody a prayer," Ryan tells his classes. He said they may have been praying a prayer their whole life, but by saying the prayer in conjunction with different postures, they can more fully understand and appreciate the words they are saying.
