Testimonials

from our teacher trainees

I’m so glad that I chose to train at Bliss Body Yoga. The teachers are knowledgable, and I love that we got so many different perspectives. Being able to do hands-on assists in real classes and being able to teach a class to my fellow trainees helped me to gain more confidence as a teacher. Thank you so much!

Colby, Mary, and Rachel each bring their unique perspectives to the program, and the result is a multi-faceted, fully engaging and stimulating learning experience. I feel grateful to have found these teachers, both as student and teacher trainee.
