What is the Unity Study?
The Unity Study, starting March 2, 2020, is a transformative book and Bible study that blends the yoga philosophy’s ethical lifestyle with Christ-centered spirituality and practices. Each week we will embody our call to be peacemakers through yoga, meditation, devotionals, and authentic community.
Anyone can sign up: those interested in putting their faith into action, those interested in a cross-cultural study to deepen their faith, yoga teachers and students in their communities who want to “let their life speak” love. Yoga teachers can earn 30 hours of Yoga Alliance CEUS.
