Why Is the Fitness Industry Full of the New Age, Yet Devoid of Jesus?
Show Notes

New age spirituality is creeping into the fitness industry. From tarot cards at the front desk of barre studios, yoga classes at nearly every gym across the country, and a general openness to trying things like horoscope readings, psychics, and sound bath meditations to improve wellbeing, the industry that is meant to make us well is leading us down a path of darkness.

As Christians, we must be discerning about what we open our heart to and allow into our lives. The great news is that the Holy Spirit is your best friend when it comes to determining which classes and gyms to step into and which to avoid. Join me in this episode for a conversation on defining new age spirituality and some thoughts on why it's working its way into spaces where we never thought we'd see it.
