Michelle Thielen, R-YFT, R-CYAMT, Yoga Therapist

Michelle began studying and practicing yoga in the late 80’s while professionally dancing in Portland, Oregon where she was born and raised. Eventually, the love of yoga and its numerous benefits led her into instructing and sharing the wonderful gift of yoga with others, but it was her passion for Christ that led her to YogaFaith.

She has been registered with the American Council of Exercise since 2009, certified yoga therapist, a Master Trainer with the Christian Yoga Association and has been teaching somatic movement through dance and yoga for over 20 years. As an international speaker and author of the widely popular Christian Yoga book, Stretching Your Faith, Michelle has trained over 2000 students in becoming highly skilled yoga trainers, living a life on purpose and in confidence.

I look forward to meeting you at training where we are going to dive so deep into Christ and what He has for you here on earth that you will wish you had come sooner! God has something HUGE awaiting you in Pennsylvania and I can’t wait to see what it is!

MaryAnn Sander

I completed my first YogaFaith 200hr training in 2017 and have not looked back since! I currently hold certifications as a YogaFaith yoga Instructor, Master Trainer, Lead Trainer, Meditation/Nidra Instructor, Trauma Sensitive Instructor and Sozo/Somatics Instructor. I am on staff with YogaFaith working in the area of student support services. I am also a curriculum writer currently writing for YogaFaith’s new Yoga Therapy program! My heart and spirit completely align with YogaFaith philosophy “to train, equip, resource and empower the body of Christ to fulfill their unique God-given purpose; and to live successful Christian lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

MaryAnn recently became the first and only YogaFaith Master Lead Trainer, YF-MLT, she is so incredible that we created this position for her, or she created the position for us, whichever it is…we can’t wait for you to learn from her!

Marie Lenda, R-YFYT

It’s been over 20 years ago since I fell in love with Yin. After a local studio owner encouraged me to take teacher training, in which I completed my 200 hour certification in December 2016 in addition to my YogaFaith Yin Certification.  A few months later I started teaching Yin and haven’t stopped since, I love sharing Christ and my love for yoga with my students!

Paul Grilley, Yin Educator

Paul Grilley is an internationally renowned and celebrated master yoga teacher, specializing in the method of Yin Yoga. His best-selling Anatomy for Yoga program is a paradigm-shifting contemporary training course celebrated by senior yoga teachers and collected by tens of thousands of students from all around the world. Paul’s teachings offer an extraordinary experience and study for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of anatomy and yoga practice.

YogaFaith is grateful that Paul is returning to our Yin Teacher Training with updated wisdom and research. We know that you will be blessed by his teachings!
