Christ-Centered Yoga Leader Training Program Information Packet
The Christ-Centered Yoga Leader Training Program is designed for those who want to deepen their yoga knowledge and practice, and strengthen and deepen their relationship with Christ. It is also designed to equip individuals with the necessary tools to lead a Christ-Centered yoga ministry. The 200 hour Christ-Centered Yoga Leader training program consists of classes focused on yoga philosophy, lifestyle and ethics for yoga instructors, anatomy and physiology, teaching and training methodology, and mentoring.
We are committed to keeping the class size to a maximum of 10-12 leaders-in-training in order to foster relationship development, improve learning and information retention, maintain accountability, and provide on-going support and education.
Once you complete the training program, you will receive a Christ-Centered Yoga Leader (CCYL) certificate and will be eligible to apply for a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) certification, through Yoga Alliance. You will also have the opportunity to stay connected to The Center for Living Well Midwest Division for support if you so choose. This certification will equip you to teach yoga in any environment. Although, this program is Christ-Centered, the training you receive will equip you to have and teach a sound practice in any venue.
