Our Hearts Desire

It is our desire to intimately connect people to Christ; mind, body, spirit and soul. We do this by providing a safe and nurturing environment for our students to grow not only in their yoga practice but spiritually and emotionally as well. Leadership and Discipleship are hallmarks woven into the fabric of every YogaFaith Training.

Our Story

YogaFaith was birthed out of a 21 day Daniel Fast in 2013.

Our Lead Trainer is the Holy Spirit, Who breathed the first curriculum into existence and continues to lead the way at YogaFaith. 

I was fasting for a job, but God gave me a purpose instead.

Ministry can be challenging, but it’s the most rewarding journey I have been a part of. When you surrender your whole life to the Lord, giving Him ALL the broken pieces, He will put them together and use your greatest mess as your most incredible message.

It has been my greatest honor and privilege to witness so many lives being transformed for the glory of God! I am humbled to my core that He has blessed so many with the gift of YogaFaith – we get to preach His Word while sharing the gift of WHOLE WORSHIP!

YogaFaith’s Statement of Faith

The Bible

We believe the entire Bible is inspired by God and His Holy Spirit. It is free from any error and complete. The Bible is the authority on which we base our faith, conduct and doctrine. (1 Corinthians 2:13, 2 Timothy 3:16)


We believe in the creation according to the book of Genesis. That in the beginning was God, He created everything above and beneath the Heavens, He formed man from dust and breathed His Holy Spirit into his body. (The book of Genesis)

The Trinity

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as Savior of the world, and left man His Holy Spirit as our present help and guide. (John 3:16, 14:26)


We believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is found by placing our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross. We believe Jesus was resurrected three days later and is coming again. (1 Corinthians 6:14, 1 Corinthians 15:14, Ephesians 2:8­9, Hebrews 9:22)

Water Baptism

We believe water baptism is an external symbol of the internal cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 8:14­17, Matthew 28:18-­20)


We believe in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross. (1 Corinthians 11:23-­32)


We believe every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God’s Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ. We also believe in being rooted in the house of the Lord and staying connected to His people, your eternal family. (Matt. 28:19-20, Mark 8:34, Luke. 9:23)

Eternal Life

We believe in eternal life for believers and eternal punishment for unbelievers (2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10­15, John 5:24; 3:16).
