Living Soul Institute, R-CYAS



Living Soul Institute | Parker, CO

Living Soul is yoga school that integrates the richness of yoga tradition and Christ-centered spirituality, providing teacher certification and continuing education training. “Living Soul” was inspired by Gen. 2:7, “And God formed the man of dust of the earth, and breathed upon his face the breath of life, and the man became a living soul.” We believe that each and every time we come to the yoga mat there is an opportunity for us to breathe in the “breath of life” and come alive through the practice of movement and meditation. Our goal is to educate, equip, and inspire servant leaders to create sanctuaries for all people to experience the union of mind, body and soul. Trainees develop a compassionate approach to teaching, honoring that every BODY is unique. Our small-group environment allows for trainees to customize their teaching style so they can authentically rise to the call to bear light and love in a world that desperately needs it.

Rooted & Reaching, CYA-CEP



Rooted & Reaching, with Jody Thomae| Ashland, OH

My philosophy in life, ministry and yoga can be summarized in two words: ROOTED & REACHING. All my offerings are:

ROOTED or grounded in form, alignment, intention, inclusion, safety, and a shared-experience between teacher and student.

REACHING or stretching towards personal goals, dreams, destiny, and the God-given design in each of our lives.

In spiritual terms, for those who want to truly embody their faith, for whose yoga practice is an act of whole body worship, and for those who seek to be followers of Jesus Christ, we understand that when we are ROOTED in our own identity as beloved children of God and know that we are deeply loved by Him, we can live a life REACHING out to others in a way that doesn’t drain and deplete us, but fills us with life as we live out our own unique calling in this world and extend His love, grace and mercy to others.
