My Immersion retreat was the first time I felt comfortable enough to share my story.
I was able to open up and be completely vulnerable with the guys in my group, but it wasn’t until the day after the retreat that I had a breakthrough on my mat. I had so much hate and anger in my heart it was hard for me to be vulnerable outside the men’s group.
I had a one-on-one session with Amy after I had opened up to her and told her my story. That was the first time I knew there was something special about Holy Yoga and I realized the impact it could have on people.
I was all in after that.
One of the most impactful things for me was the prayer room at the retreat. I was going through some pain on my right side and I said I was going to go to the prayer room until it was taken care of. I went to four or five sessions there and talked to some people about it.
The last time I went was when I broke down. It was something I thought I had dealt with, but it was just another layer being pulled off. The whole week I felt my heart slowly healing from so much pain.
Holy Yoga has given me an avenue to reach people in ways I didn’t think possible. I have learned so much about myself and the gifts God has given me to reach people and I don’t know where I would be if it wasn’t for Holy Yoga.

The Prayer Room at the Holy Yoga Immersion experience is manned by volunteers and staff of the Holy Yoga Foundation and is often an invaluable part of the Hoya Yoga training experience.
