Yoga in the church
CrossYoga is Christian yoga

"I can highly recommend this high quality teacher training. It gives you both competences to teach but also develops you as a person. This training is for you when either you dream about teaching yoga; want to know more about yoga for personal reasons or want to bring movement and meditation into your own spiritual life. The training has given me a lot - both on and off the yoga mat". (Charlotte)

Christian yoga teacher training

 "This training gave me knowledge about my body and the longings of my soul. I wanted to get ‘faith’ more into my everyday life and that I gain with CrossYoga. The training gave me peace and strength in body, soul and mind. The best thing I have done for my self in a long time." (Helene)

Dates and time:


8-day 100 hour training will take place September 5th to Septemeber 12th.


We offer two kinds of instructor trainings:

1) CrossYoga instructor (100 hour - module 1)

2) CrossYoga 200RYT instructor (200 hour - module 2)


We spend 8 days together for an intensive 100 hour training (module 1). After this you only need to pass the final exam to get your CrossYoga certification. You are able to teach yoga after the 8 days!

If you want the 200hour certificate:

200RYT instructors will first atted the 100 hour training (module 1). After this you'll have to take another training - about 9 extra days (module 2). After this and the final exam, you'll get the CrossYoga 200RYT certificate. (Dates for this training will come soon.)


What kind of training should I take?


The 8-day CrossYoga 100 hour training:

This amazing training is for you if you want to teach yoga once or twice during the week in your church or community center, or host a retreat once in a while. Teaching yoga is something you feel is meaningfull but it is not the way you plan to earn your main income.


CrossYoga 200RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) - 2 modules:

CrossYoga 200RYT is for you if you have a vision of making  an income by teaching yoga, offering retreats, workshops, etc. With the 200RYT you get an internationally recognized training via Yoga Alliance. Yoga Alliance has requirements that must be followed in order for you to get the 200RYT certification, and therefore this training is  more expensive and more comprehensive.


It is possible to take the CrossYoga 100 hour training and then continue with module 2 - and become a 200RYT - after a year or so.

 "The training was a starting point for me. I became much more fit and a more spiritual person. Rie is an incredible teacher and a wonderful person.
I was a bit nervous about the ‘faith’ part, but I think the Christian faith gave the teaching more depth and connected us closer to each other. It was a beautiful training". (Liv)
