In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to use this as a season of opportunity and to continue my education and practice in yoga. I was searching for a yoga certification that was Christian based. After much searching and surfing the internet I was disenchanted with what was out there until I found YogaFaith. Since my life has been centered around Christ and his teachings, I needed a certification that was Christ centered and would be able to help me bring others to know and love Him and how He wonderfully weaves our brokenness into wholeness.
Michelle Thielen and all the Master Instructors at YogaFaith helped me in developing my skills and witnessed how the Holy Spirit worked and weaved my every being; transforming my professional life, my spiritual life and my personal life as a woman, wife, mother and more importantly brought me closer to the Lord.
I started my yoga journey back in 2005 when I became a Master Personal Trainer from NASM. After completing my R-200 YTT through LifePower Yoga I dabbled here and there not being able to find my Why. YogaFaith addressed my Why. In July 2021 I completed the YogaFaith Masters R-500 YFMTT/Level1 Yoga Therapy and YogaFaith Meeting of Ancient Pathways. Currently I am finishing the 12 Step and Recovery, and Trauma Sensitive certifications. My husband and I founded You & Me Fitness Together and You & Me Yoga Together in 2020. The journey continues and I am most grateful to God for teaching me to listen; I am humbled and look forward to serving others.
