Sunrise Yoga

What better way to greet the Sabbath day than to watch the sunrise, to listen to wonderful acoustic music and to stretch through a Sun Salutation before you head off to your Sunday activities?

The sunrises in Southern Florida and Keys were some of the most amazing I've seen.

“Sunday is the core of our civilization, dedicated to thought and reverence.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Sabbath, then, refers to a day of rest from labor . . . . Although the fundamental concept is the cessation from labor, this alone does not exhaust the idea of the Sabbath. It is not to serve solely as a convenience for man by which he might rest from the labors of the days which precede; there is a religious aspect as well. The Lord blessed the Sabbath Day and hallowed it, thus making it a holy day, a day of worship, a day of devotion, a day to contemplate those things that pertain to God and man's relationship to him(The Teachings of Howard W. Hunter, p. 113)

The purpose of the Sabbath is for spiritual uplift, for a renewal of our covenants, for worship, for rest, for prayer. It is for the purpose of feeding the spirit, that we may keep ourselves unspotted from the world by obeying God's command.                                 - Ezra Taft Benson
