YogaFaith 12 Step and Recovery Oct 5-8 Tucson
The YogaFaith 12 Step and Recovery Program was more than I could ask for. As a recovering addict I have a heart to help and heal this population. This certification equipped me to hold meetings that include a Christ centered approach to effectively put rubber to the road. When we hit rock bottom, it’s important we have a support system in place to guide us back to the Truth. The rescuer and helper of all…Jesus. But there is real work involved. I left confident to heal others from addictions of any kind as well as create a support system for all to take back into their communities. I cannot say enough about this program. Thank you to all who were involved in the curriculum, program, meetings and classes! Anonymous, Florida, USA

January 2017 | 200 hour YogaFaith Yoga Alliance Teacher Training
I found the YogaFaith Syllabus to be very thorough, Christ-centered, and full of Scripture – exactly the training I had been looking for. My contact hours spent at the “Miracle Immersion” was like being in a God-bath…….- time away, unplugged, to dream, create, learn, listen, and experience the Creator’s amazing love and creation as we developed our yoga teaching skills in community, equipping us to be facilitators of God’s healing through yoga. Celeste D., Kelwana, Canada

 

March 2016, Olympia, WA |200 hour YogaFaith, Yoga Alliance YTT: Apply soon!
The Miracle Immersion brought me freedom. Surrendering my body, mind, and spirit throughout the 6-day retreat opened my heart and allowed me to put my prayers before God in a more fulfilling manner. I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for several years, but until I experienced YogaFaith there was always something missing from my practice. I am so grateful to have found YogaFaith during this season of my life and cannot imagine training to become an instructor any other way. How unfulfilled I would feel, if we just focused on yoga and “the Self.” I feel so blessed to have shared body, mind, and spirit with all the ladies of the retreat.

 

April 2016, Spain | YogaFaith Spain Retreat
Unplug and invest a week in quiet contemplation mixed with health and movement.Enjoy the warmth, the sun and the view while you meditate and use your body to YogaFaith.

We stress too often around in everyday life and lose the overview and direction. At the retreat, God will meet us with love, cleanse ourselves of everyday ‘pollution’ and move forward, we will return home with new energy and perhaps new life direction.

At the retreat, we use yoga faith as a bodily way to seek God, wordless prayer, if you will. It typically provides a deeper peace and makes it easier to listen and tune in to the voice of God in meditation and reading.

April 2-5, 2017 Trauma Sensitive YogaFaith in Atlanta
Be prepared to journey through the brain, body and spirit and how past, current, constant or complex trauma affects them all. We will have time and space in a beautiful and safe atmosphere to decompress and enjoy ALL that Elohee offers. The Lord will meet us there! Together we will learn how to release, or share with others, the power of letting go and creating space in the wounds and scars to allow God to breathe new life into those inner spaces. Wouldn’t recommend any other Christian Yoga school. YogaFaith is not only remarkable in training yoga teachers, it’s a place where you experience the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. Like they say at YogaFaith, Jesus first, yoga second! Sarah C., R-YFT, RYT, Atlanta, GA
