What We Believe

At YogaFaith, we want to intimately connect people to Christ; mind, body, spirit and soul. We strive to train up world class leaders as well as redeem biblical principles for God’s glory. Our teachings are centered on the Bible, the complete and authoritative Word of God acts as our guide in all that we do and seek. (Mark 12:28­32, Isaiah 61).

Our Story

YogaFaith was born out of a 21 day fast that founder Michelle Thielen embarks on at the beginning of every year. God led her to Mark 12:30. “Worship the Lord with all your might, with all your strength, with all your being.” This is YogaFaith. We are simply worshiping the Lord with our whole being. Acts. 17:28 Says that in Him we move, we live, we breathe, and we have our being. Whether we are washing dishes, lifting weights, taking a zumba class, or simply stretching, we glorify our maker with everything He has given us. Romans 12:2 reminds us to take our everyday coming and goings, and offer it up as worship and prayer.

In January of 2019 YogaFaith celebrated its 6th-year anniversary. Since its inception YogaFaith has certified over 600 hundred students all over the world!
