What is YogaFaith?


YogaFaith is a Christian Yoga Association Master School that trains professional and knowledgeable yoga instructors with studies that center around Christ and the Word of God, while honoring the roots and traditions of yoga. It is our goal to help students find wholeness of mind, body, soul and spirit by encountering Christ on and off the yoga mat. We celebrate who God created you to be and focus on cultivating your God-given unique gifts, talents, abilities and leadership skills.

YogaFaith equips trainees with a comprehensive education in scripture study, yoga, a disciplined practice and a compassionate lifestyle so that each may journey into all the world and help others through Christ-centered yoga to find healing of mind, body, soul and spirit. Our core belief is that once an individual finds true healing, their home is restored, then their community, then their city, state, and soon the world will see revival.

YogaFaith was founded by Michelle Ann Thielen. Called the Yoga Pastor, Michelle holds Certifications with the American Council of Exercise and International Association of Yoga Therapists and is a Registered Master YogaFaith Trainer. Michelle is an international speaker and author of Stretching Your Faith, and the forthcoming book Exit Wilderness. She has been instrumental in aiding with the restoration of those who suffer from trauma, intense anxiety or depression. She travels around the world aiding in the rescue efforts of human trafficking victims.

Our mission at YogaFaith is The Greatest Commandment: to love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind and to love our neighbor just the same. YogaFaith seeks to holistically develop disciples to realize their anointing, heal the brokenhearted, set captives free and share the love of God throughout the world. We at YogaFaith, want to intimately connect people to Christ: mind, body, spirit and soul. We strive to train up world class leaders as well as redeem biblical principles from yogic techniques. Our teachings are centered on the Bible: the complete and authoritative Word of God acts as our guide in all that we do and seek. (Mark 12:28­-32, Isaiah 61)
