Retreats and Workshops

If you would like your event listed here, please email volunteer@christianspracticingyoga.com.

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.
