Spirit Led Yoga is about honoring God in your body, mind, and spirit. It is about tuning in & living out God’s perfect plan for your life. Our teacher training program will equip believers to live a more spirit-filled life on and off their yoga mat.
Jer 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Yoga is so much more than a workout: it’s a path which calls people who crave a connection with something greater than themselves. The word Yoga means “union,” and the practice of yoga is far more than a physical endeavor. It’s a chance to unite breath, body, mind, and spirit in a wordless prayer which facilitates union with the divine and creates space for deep physical and emotional renewal.
In Spirit Led Yoga, Jesus is our guru. It is through our faith in Jesus Christ that we are given the only teacher we will ever need, the Holy Spirit. Spirit Led Yoga teaches you how to not only hear God’s voice, but to unlock the power of the Holy Spirit and abide in the one true Divine light. In 1 John 2:27 it states:
“As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.”
As God promises in his word,
“Where two or more are gathered in my name, there I will be in the midst of them… Draw near to me, and I will draw near to you.” (Matthew 18:20, James 4:8).
We expect God to show up in a big way during this training, and we are praying for those who attend to have direct encounters with God. We want to help students understand their God-given gifts and callings, and to learn to use Yoga as a way to not only grow closer to Him but to teach others this beautiful practice of Spirit Led Yoga.
Spirit Led Yoga Curriculum
Our training is broken down into three modules: Yoga & Body; Yoga & Mind; Yoga & Spirit. Students will access an online learning portion of training beginning May 15, 2018. Video and PDF content will be available for yoga history, philosophy, Ayurveda, sacred texts, and anatomy/physiology.
The residential 17-day immersion includes 180 contact hours with lead teachers Kerri Verna and Amelia Travis. This will be more than yoga training – it will be a sacred space, dedicated to God and open to all that God has purposed and planned for you. Upon completion of all modules, practicum, and exams, students will be issued a 200-hour certification which may be registered with Yoga Alliance.
