As a resource for connecting Christians who practice yoga, we post any events related to Christianity and yoga/meditation. A listing here is not necessarily an endorsement. As an ecumenical site, we welcome Christians from every denomination, and we understand that not every event on this list will share the same beliefs and practices. As with everything in life--choosing a school, a church, or a doctor--we encourage discernment in the participants.

23-31 Wholeness Journey, Thailand
Wholeness Journeys are a unique blend of yoga retreat and missions trip.
The Wholeness Journey Thailand team is made up of women passionate about getting healthy and whole inside and out and bringing that wholeness to women coming out of the sex trade in Pattaya, Thailand. More women are trafficked to Pattaya than any other city in the world. It's a place where the light of Christ shines bright against the dark backdrop of bustling sex tourism. The team will partner with a powerhouse, local anti-trafficking ministry to bring the love of Jesus through yoga, storytelling, scripture, beauty, and art. See wholenessjourney.org for full details.
