Teacher Trainings

There are several studios in North America offering teacher training from a specifically Christian perspective. If this appeals you, contact these studios directly for more information. (It is also totally possible for a Christian, well-rooted in her own faith tradition, to receive training from a traditional, non-Christian teacher training program. We suggest supplementing this training with additional reading and study from the Christian tradition. A list of resources can be found here.)

On this site, we compile a list of resources for Christians who practice yoga, but these listings here are not necessarily an endorsement. As an ecumenical site, we welcome Christians from every denomination, and we understand that not every studio on this list believes or practices the same thing. As with everything in life--choosing a school, a church, or a doctor--we encourage discernment in the participants.
