We live in a beautiful, diverse world with evidence of our God's creativity all around us but it's also a world filled with pain, suffering, injustice, and oppression. There is a deep aching for redemption all around. As we anticipate the day that the Lord will come and set all things right, we also believe He is inviting us to enter into the work He is doing right here and right now.
You see, we are as so much more than yoga teachers; we are gospel preachers. Isaiah 61:1 says, "The Lord has appointed me for a special purpose. He has anointed me to bring the good news to the poor. He has sent me to repair broken hearts, and to announce freedom to all captives." We use the modality of Holy Yoga to do just that; to shine His love and light to every dark corner of this earth.
We are currently in the process of preparing a curriculum to be used for organizations doing work around the world with trauma survivors. We believe that to experience true freedom, we must heal on every level; body, mind, heart. We want to empower and equip individuals with the tools they need to lead basic, trauma informed yoga classes to survivors.
As we think ahead, we are seeking opportunities to run instructor training programs outside of the United States as well as missions trips, and regional retreats in other countries.
God is expanding this ministry far beyond US borders, from England to Australia and so many places in between, and we are thrilled to see instructors from all over the world answering His call. All are welcome, no matter what country you live; there is a place for you in the Holy Yoga Family.
Breathe Love Give is a bi-annual campaign starting this year to raise global awareness for all Holy Yoga is doing around the world.

Breath Love Give is a perfect opportunity to do that by gathering together around a cause much greater than ourselves.
During BLG month, we will highlight a specific project Holy Yoga International is involved with and invite each of our instructors to host a Breathe Love Give class to help fund the work. This could be a time to let loose and let your imagination run free as you plan a BLG class or keep it simple and designate one of your regular classes as a BLG class!
This May, we will host our first ever Breathe Love Give Campaign to raise $10,000. The money will go towards curriculum development for those working around the world with trauma survivors. Part of the funds will go towards piloting the
