Rededicate yourself to the Yamas and Niyamas of the Yoga Sutras.
Being a yoga teacher means working towards the embodiment of the historical teachings. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali offer a set of ethical principles for all yogis to follow – the Yamas and Niyamas. In line with these ethical principles, Bliss Body Yoga’s TMP invites teachers to cultivate a deeper connection to the yogic path through self-study – Svadhyaya. During the 3 month program, the teacher will connect with a mentor who will guide them along their individual path.

This is truly the heart of the mentorship program.
