What is the experience of the teachers?

All of our lead teachers are YYT-500 (Yahweh Yoga Teacher), ERYT-500 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teachers) and/or RYT-500 (Registered Yoga Teachers) with Yoga Alliance.

What can I expect from my teacher training experience?

Teacher trainings are designed to bring joy into your whole life. You will learn incredible things about yourself and your unique gifts, yoga, nutrition, healing, optimum health, business, CPR, naturopathic health, Scripture, and deepening your relationship with God.

It is rare in life to take this kind of time for yourself to delve deeply into your soul, your body, your health and your personal faith walk. The opportunity before you is limitless. Your days will be filled with touching, relevant and challenging moments.

You will be surrounded by love, encouragement and grace every step of the way. As your teachers we are committed to excellence at the highest level.

Our calling in life is to deliver an exceptional experience that prepares our students to become inspiring yoga teachers who shine God’s love throughout world.

Many students take our teacher training to explore their personal practice, lifestyle and spiritual growth, and do not actually plan on teaching, only to find they became an inspiring teacher during training and can teach if they decide to do so.

When you leave you will be confident in your ability to deliver outstanding yoga classes.

How many students are in the training?

Our trainings are exclusive and limited to 25 students or less. We truly care about each student and you will have plenty of individual attention. We have more than 800 graduates throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad.

Your classmates are individuals who share your passion for personal growth, optimum health and are dedicated to changing the world in a most meaningful way. Lifelong friendships are often made in our trainings.

I’m a beginner; can I still join your class?

Yes, of course!  We work with beginners to very advanced students and the practice will be tailored to your strengths to help you achieve your next level gracefully.  All ages and fitness levels are welcome.

What would you define a beginner?

Two kinds of beginners:

  1. Completely new to yoga/never done yoga of any kind: You learn the basics from the beginning!
  2. Beginner to Christian style yoga: You are familiar with yoga and want to incorporate your individual Christian faith into practice and/or teaching.
What Programs and Credentials are available through Yahweh Yoga Training's?

Our Teacher Training Programs comprise rigorous academic study and extensive supervised practice.

You’ll learn the same basic skills as you would at any traditional yoga teacher training program, all through the beauty of a Christian perspective.

Students will enjoy their training program in our state-of-the-art online classroom. Our Online Program is 70 days, approximately 1-hour per day.
