    mouth: It will not return to me empty,

    but will accomplish what I desire and

    achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

    What is Holy Yoga? Holy Yoga exists because in a broken and hurting world everyone deserves a place to belong. Holy Yoga

    is an experiential worship created to deepen people's connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to

    facilitate a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non-believers alike to

    authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. Holy Yoga exists to carry the

    Gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga.

    Holy Yoga is a highly regarded international yoga instructor training program.

    This program consists of two modules broken down into an in-person

    curriculum immersion (two classes/week for nine weeks totaling 150 contact-

    hours) and a hands-on intensive retreat (five days), bringing the total training

    hours to 225.

    Our LIVE 225 Hour Instructor Training is approved by Yoga Alliance.

    Our intention is to live out four pillars of purpose.

    ● Community - We are here to serve. We long to create a place for everyone to belong, from the

    Christian who is afraid of yoga to the Christian who loves yoga; from the yogi to the seeker; from

    the non-believer to those who believe differently. We welcome the diversity, anticipate great

    conversations and are excited to facilitate authentic community.

    ● Yoga - We are a highly regarded international yoga instructor training program. Our staff has

    collectively participated in and completed some of the most well-known yoga certification

    programs. With years of experience and training, they collaborate to offer a stellar training that

    truly cannot be compared with any other. Whatever your desire, upon graduating you will have

    the education and tools you need to facilitate Holy Yoga in your sphere of influence. Holy Yoga

    does not water down the truth or the experience for seekers. It invites them into a world class

    yoga experience, one that offers both physical and spiritual sustenance.

    ● Christ-Centeredness - We are Christ-centered. Knowing who we are invites others to come into

    the fullness of their unique identity. Holy Yoga training is here to equip you to facilitate a Christ-

    honoring experience that offers the opportunity for believers and non-believers alike to

    authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. Holy Yoga exists to

    bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga.

    ● Living Beyond Ourselves - We are keenly aware of our world. It is broken and many are hurting.

    Our desire is to have eyes, arms and hearts wide open. We are creating a community of those

    willing to go beyond themselves to influence this world in the unique ways God has called them.

    We do not know all things, and we long for the mystery of God to guide us. We want to speak

    truth, listen to stories, and discuss the in-between, finding the thread of service and ministry
