About the Academy of Holistic Fitness

Home Study Courses for Fitness Professionals

Over the past twenty years the Academy of Holistic Fitness has become recognized and respected within the fitness industry for our innovative and outstanding series of continuing education courses that feature yoga, somatic education, and mind-body fitness.

Our mission: The Academy of Holistic Fitness promotes the traditional practices, teachings, and techniques of yoga, mind-body fitness, and somatic education as practical and effective lifestyle management protocols that support longevity, vitality, healing, and self-actualization.

Our courses are special. We have taken great care to identify what you want to know and what you need to know to become a competent, creative, and compassionate holistic fitness educator. Our courses have been carefully crafted to provide you with the theoretical knowledge and technical know-how to create a variety of meaningful holistic fitness experiences for your students and your Self. 

We are not trendy, and we do not follow fitness fads or gimmicks. Our goal is to preserve the essential teachings and techniques of yoga, mind-body fitness, and somatic-based education, while presenting this information in a contemporary way that is appealing, interesting, understandable, and useful for today’s fitness professionals and their clients.  

We don’t just give lip service to the concept of mind-body fitness.
As you study our courses, we encourage you to explore and experience the value and significance of mind-body practices firsthand, for this is the only way to really learn about something. We want each of you to know, with all certainty, that mind-body fitness practices can produce powerful positive changes within each individual practitioner. To this end, our courses promote the concept of Holistic Fitness as an ongoing process of self-discovery, understanding, and transformation that employs personal-reporting (introspection and somatic awareness) as a valid and reliable data source for scientific inquiry and documentation of results.

We hope our courses become valued resources that enhance both your career and your personal growth. What distinguishes our teaching is our interest in the effect of this work on the total person, not just on the person's body.  We believe that health, fitness, and lifetime happiness are attained through a combination of physical, psychological, and spiritually-based training techniques, and that the essential qualities of poise, self-respect, inherent nobility, discipline, and loving kindness are integral aspects of optimal wellness.

"LindaChristy's courses are all-encompassing. But for me, the highlight is her ability to so beautifully and effectively communicate the psychological component to the work of fitness. As a result of her courses I can more effectively relay this inextricable element to my students. In the end, many gain from her work."

"The Academy of Holistic Fitness courses provides a genuine alternative perspective towards yoga practiced in the west. The "Practical Yoga for Personal Training" course empowered me by receiving more clarity towards the overall integration of yoga and fitness and how the two can be balanced as one. It is a huge add on for enhancing my overall perspective in physical therapy. For me personally, this is perfect because I try to avoid cultural appropriation since it might offend potential clients. I am really grateful that the Academy of Holistic Fitness provides a "scientific" approach vs. challenging personal beliefs. Many thank-you's to Linda Christy Weiler for creating this! So awesome. THANK YOU SO MUCH!"
