welcome to the yoga church community hub

a membership community dedicated to deep spiritual care & sustainable transformation


  • What if your life felt grounded in a deep sense of meaning and tradition?

  • What if you had the tools to respond to emotional upheaval and pain with intention? 

  • What if you were part of a community working together to figure out their ongoing, next, right action in response to the complicated and beautiful world in which we live?

It sounds good, right? 

Well, it’s possible. We know it’s possible because it’s already happening inside the Yoga Church community... 

“I get a lot out of this community. I’m very grateful that I have these connections that I wouldn’t otherwise have… During all this, my gosh, I don’t know where I would've been if I hadn’t been able to reach out to you guys. So thank you.”

“The Yoga Church supports me as a grounding force. The regularity of it, the container of knowing that it’s there has power outside of just those hours, even if I can’t keep up with the regularness myself. There is a sense of community even in looking at the faces of the people that I’ve never met in person. There’s a sense of community that’s created. In regards to my personal spirituality, the Yoga Church helps me get deeper, get outside of my head, it encourages me to contemplate things that are hard, contemplate the big picture stories. It’s hard to get there, hard to take the first steps of the long walk, but it’s super valuable. And it’s easier to do the hard work within the container of community.” —C.C.

The Yoga Church community is full and rich. But you know what’s missing? YOU! And we want you with us.

Together we study the deeper dimensions of yoga practice and wrestle with big questions so that we can learn how to love ourselves, our communities, and our world better. We’re not interested in self-care for its own sake. We’re interested in the kind of self-care that resources and equips us to work for collective care.

“Before Yoga Church, I never thought yoga had anything to do with social justice. And it has everything to do with social justice! It really does.” —M.A.

Together we practice the many tools of yoga so that we can feel grounded, respond to emotional upheaval with intention, and figure out our next, right action.

Together we explore our passions and curiosity. We share our anger and our laughter. We help each other move through struggle and celebrate joy. We mark the changing seasons with ritual and blessing.

The Yoga Church is a gathering of spiritual seekers in search of authentic and practical ways to connect with Divine Mystery (however we each understand it). 

We're a gathering of diverse people with different religious experience and understanding—from every faith tradition and none—unified by our desire to live lives of intention, meaning, and mystery. 

We're building our own community. We're breaking down the walls of individualism and saying NO to the myth of perfectionism. We're defining our own spiritual paths.

Will you join us?

Inside the Community Hub you'll find:

The Yoga Church (obviously!!)

  • You'll be able to listen to the Sunday Sermons and join the Weekly Gatherings inside the Hub.
  • And there's space to share in ongoing reflection and conversation. We don't know about you, but we're always thinking of things we wish we could share with the community after the gathering.

Live, guided practices every week

  • Join us for Asana (movement) classes Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday,
  • Sacred Study Meditation on Friday,
  • And ongoing special offerings (like Yoga Nidra and Restorative Practice) every month.

Can't join us live? Don't worry, you'll have 24/7 access to the vast library of recorded practices.

Mini Courses

  • Join us for ongoing short courses based on themes chosen by the community (for example: Transforming Anxiety and Pranayama).

And again, don't worry in you can't join us live, you'll have 24/7 access to the library of mini courses.

Small group, deep dives

You'll have the opportunity to participate in:

  • small group health & wellness coaching with Marci
  • and small group spiritual direction with Summer.

Sacred Study Group

  • The Yoga Church is grounded in the ancient texts of yoga and together we're working our way through the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and several of the key Upanishads.

Book Club Conversations

  • We gather every month to dive deep into thought provoking, life changing books (usually about what it means to love well...).

Ongoing Community Connections

  • This is social media like you wish it was... post, share, comment, and like without distraction, without clickbait or ads, without algorithms controlling your experience. We've built the Hub through Mighty Networks (a private and secure platform) so we can trust that our information and posts are safe and not owned or shared by anyone.
  • The Hub is our space to keep the conversations flowing. We can share ongoing reflections and follow-up on ideas and resources after practices and gatherings.
  • Join themed circles to build community with people who share similar interests (like location, parents, artists, yoga teachers, recipes, etc.)

Will you join us in the Yoga Church Community Hub? You'll still have to feed yourself, but otherwise, we've pretty much got you covered! ;-) 

And these benefits are just the ones we know of right now... there is so much potential within the Hub and we can't wait to see what you help create!

Meet Summer and Marci

We met at CITYOGA School of Yoga & Health in Indianapolis back in 2010 (during our 200-hr teacher training) and we’ve been friends ever since. We believe in the power of community and recently asked ourselves: “Why should we work alone when we can work together?”

And so here we are... Building an online community where people can come together and be real (with themselves and each other). "What’s real now?" is one of Summer’s favorite questions and "warts and all" is one of Marci’s favorite sayings. We don’t want a polished version of who you think we want you to be. We want the real you. And we want to be the real us. 

Community is vital to our health and wellbeing. And the depth to which we can grow and support one another feels endless. One of the most beautiful things we can imagine is a community where we trust each other enough to show up as our authentic selves and find the courage to move toward our highest potential.

We hope you'll join us! If you have any questions about the Yoga Church Community Hub, don't hesitate to contact us. (Click here to contact Summer or click here to contact Marci).

Summer Cushman (founder of the Yoga Church) holds an M.Div. from the Earlham School of Religion, is a certified (500hr) Viniyoga Teacher through the American Viniyoga Institute, and a certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. 

Summer works to create spaces where people can uncover and connect with the Divine Light that always, already exists within them. She leads workshops and retreats around the country, teaches online philosophy courses designed to help people create transformative personal practices, and publishes the Yoga Church Sunday Sermons, a free weekly offering delivered to your inbox. She also—and maybe this is her favorite—works with people one-on-one to dive deep into the hard work of moving beyond the patterns that cause them pain. 

Summer lives on 15 wooded acres in Custer, WA (100 miles north of Seattle) with her beloved husband and two standard poodles. She's passionate about ancient scripture and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She's obsessed with learning and takes way too many online courses (but she loves them all!).

Marci Becker is a Certified Health & Wellness Coach, experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT 200), & a continuing education provider through Yoga Alliance (YACEP). In a former life (when she thought she wanted to be a high-powered CEO) she also earned an MBA...

Yoga has been transformational for Marci and she loves to share the practice with everyone who will let her. It has provided support to her in the smallest areas of her daily life as well as in the hardest and darkest hours. She's worked with a variety of folks... youngins just learning to walk and youngins who are beyond 90: all can benefit from the practices of yoga. 

Marci has lived in Bloomington, Indiana since 2004 and enjoys traveling, softball, volunteering, hiking, biking, and spending time with loved ones. And she loves building things: houses, garages, relationships, and communities... it's all good!

We can't wait to get to know you better inside the Yoga Church Community Hub.

Membership Plans

There are three official Membership Plans. You’ll find them below. With integrity, choose the one that fits your financial resource availability. No matter which option you choose, you’ll have the same access within the Hub.

No one is turned away because of money (you're more important than money). If the cost of the reduced rate is still prohibitive for you, send us a message and we’ll happily figure it out. We want you with us! For those who are well resourced, the supporter rate helps us make this community available to everyone.
