General Holy Yoga

Holy Yoga is a Christ-centered community where you can focus on the person in Christ you are becoming and be equipped to take the message of the gospel to your community. Whether you come to us for your personal practice, instructor training, spiritual formation, or anything in between, you will find that divine transformation happens here. You can learn more about Holy Yoga by visiting our About page.

Holy Yoga is different and unique in the way that we train our instructors. We know that anyone who becomes a part of Holy Yoga has already been pre-destined to be a part of the ministry and has a gift to share with us.  We never want to miss the opportunity to see and learn from those gifts. In saying that, we base our training on the 1 Timothy way of teaching, where Paul exhorts Timothy to lead with his actions and in community rather than just in words. When you are a part of Holy Yoga, you are part of a community. We stand for connection, vertically and then horizontally. We train small groups of people.  We want to know you personally, pray for you individually, and have the bandwidth to connect with you when you call one of us.  One of the benefits of training this way is that regardless of where you are in the world, you have a community of people in your training pod that become your immediate community, friends and prayer team. Following training, you have a larger community of people all over the world who are doing what you are doing at the same time, people who can identify with and encourage you as you go home to do the work God has called you to do. 

You know you have been called when you just cannot stop thinking about it.  As much as you try to redirect your energy, you will feel drawn to it.  That is called a God push or nudge.  Yield to it.  The fact that you are even reading this is an indicator that He is speaking to you! Holy Yoga was created to connect people to Christ.  If God has a plan for you with Christian yoga, you will receive the very best yoga training by some of the very best instructors in the world, you are given the tools to facilitate your ministry.  Holy Yoga stands for one thing, connecting people to Christ.  We have developed the behind the scenes systems for you to do just that. 

Holy Yoga is for every body and every one!  The Holy Yoga Men’s Ministry exists to shepherd, disciple, and train men for a unique Holy Yoga ministry in their communities. For more information, email mensministry@holyyoga.net

Training & Programs

When we started training instructors, we taught local instructors in person and long distance instructors via conference call. Over time, we discovered that the long distance program is a more powerful platform than in person training because instead of just showing up to learn on a Saturday, participants are required to really devote time to preparing for and participating in the webinars/calls. We always say that a good instructor will tell you what to do and a great instructor will tell you how it feels. By studying on your own, you are afforded the opportunity to pay attention to sensation and God’s quiet still voice while on your mat. The training lays all of the physical foundations and mechanics of understanding, from both a yoga perspective and a ministry facilitation perspective.

We spend 25-30 minutes of each class studying the Word together because it is the primary focus of the training and the experiential worship that comprises Holy Yoga. Studying the Word also teaches us how to meditate on God’s Word and how to weave the Word into Holy Yoga. The rest of the time will be spent discussing the study content for the week.

Absolutely- we welcome international students!! The Holy Yoga Global family includes instructors from around the globe! All of our trainings are facilitated via live classes through Zoom

All of our classes are recorded and posted within 24 hrs of the live class. Depending on the program you are enrolled in, some students may watch the recordings and not attend live calls if their schedule does not allow or if there are extenuating circumstances. For details on specific program requirements be sure to connect with an Enrollment Counselor.

In order to qualify for a school that provides a 1098T it must meet the following requirement. An eligible educational institution is a school offering higher education beyond high school. It is any college, university, trade school, or other post secondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program run by the U.S. Department of Education. Holy Yoga Global is not eligible to participate in a student aid program run by the U.S. Department of Education.

The 200-hour certification is the minimum requirement to be a Certified Holy Yoga Instructor (C-HYI).  This certification is for people who are not already registered yoga instructors. In contrast, the 100-hour training is for existing Registered Yoga Teachers who want to add the Holy Yoga designation to their offering.  The 100-hour accreditation gives you the mark of C-HYI (Certified Holy Yoga Instructor).  It bridges the gap biblically between classical and Christian yoga, and it educates you on the Holy Yoga philosophy, weaving the Word, and designing classes that inspire students and support biblical messaging.

Please download your certificate at your earliest convenience. You are responsible for your certificates. We provide online storage as a courtesy only.

There are two ways for a student to view their certificates:

The Holy Yoga Global Continuing Education Program was created to facilitate ongoing growth in serving the Lord and His flock through Holy Yoga Global for our 200/100 hour Instructor Training Programs. To maintain the highest level of integrity, Certified Holy Yoga Instructors (C-HYI 200/100hr) are expected to consistently grow in intimacy with Christ through prayer, a knowledge of God through scripture, and the furthering of their yoga education. 

The Holy Yoga Global Continuing Education Program has two (2) intended purposes: 

  1. To keep Holy Yoga Global Instructors up-to-date in their training
  2. To provide Holy Yoga Global with an understanding of which instructors are continuing to teach in their areas
