Holy Yogalates is a Christ-centered Training Program that combines yoga poses and Pilates movements for an amazing core strengthening experience. Studying the practice founded by Joseph Pilates, we look at how to incorporate these movements and exercises into a yoga/Pilates fusion class that will strengthen the body’s core even as we direct our hearts toward worship of our Lord.
The Trauma-Sensitive Holy Yoga training equips you to walk others through physiological recovery from traumatic memories by applying different techniques to appropriately manage the symptoms of a trauma survivor. Individuals also study how Scripture addresses trauma and the ways in which God’s love and grace provide what is needed to safely explore the parts of the body that have felt stunted by traumatic experiences.
Why Holy Yoga? Because God told us to love Him with our mind, body, soul and heart. This is His greatest commandment. Then He said, “love one another.” That is Holy Yoga. Worshipping Jesus and loving those around us.
In May 2011, I was a physical mess with back pain, muscle spasms and tightness everywhere. Today, after 450+ classes and becoming an instructor in 2013, I am physically much stronger and able to recover from injuries much faster. Additionally, the Holy Yoga instructor family introduced me to a life where “Love thy neighbor” was practiced and where I was instantly “family” to every instructor. I am beyond blessed to be a part of the Holy Yoga family.
Having been the only guy at retreat among 60 amazing and incredible God loving women, I never once felt out of place. I never once felt like I was invading, but every day I felt welcomed and loved. I felt like I belonged and God allowed those 60 incredible women to open up their hearts and lives around me and I heard some incredible stories and learned so much.
Holy Yoga is a COMPLETELY, COMPLETE experience. It allows me to strengthen my body, nurture my soul and DEEPEN my love connection to my Heavenly Father! There is not one square inch of my earthly being that is left untouched through my Holy Yoga experiences.
