Training details and information:
Bliss for EveryBody Yoga Teacher Training has created a NEW and UNIQUE training format! Instead of a sequence of weekend trainings on a monthly basis we are now offering 2 separate 9 modules.
You can elect to Deepen your Practice with the 1st 9 day module (which is a series of 9 Sundays that allows you to slowly and progressively deepen your yoga practice over 3 months), or elect to take both Modules 1 - Deep your Practice and Module 2 - Become a Yoga Teacher (Module 2 consists of a 9 day consecutive intensive followed by the Graduation Weekend).
The separate Modules help serve both people who want to become yoga teachers (Module 1 and Module 2) and those that are looking to learn more about yoga on a physical, mental and spiritual level but do not feel they want to become a yoga teacher at this time (Module 1).
200+ hours of training in classical hatha yoga, asana, meditation, pranayama, methodology, history, philosophy, self-empowerment, mindful adjustments, self-care & more (exceeds Yoga Alliance requirements).
Special senior guest teacher from the Sivananda Lineage - Prem Sadasivananda, will be invited to spend one weekend leading the training, there may also be an option for you to work with Premji on a weekly/semi-weekly basis learning how to Empower Your Life, based on the book he's authored.
Learn from professional educators with experience teaching diverse populations (2000+ hours combined facilitating trainings).
Join a supportive community structured so that each person can thrive while learning and growing in their practice.
Experience yoga in a dynamic, authentic, inclusive and receptive environment.
Learn and practice conscious communication techniques (including the art of listening, asking compassionate questions and direct, yet kind responses).
Early Bird (paid in full) discount opportunities (see below in Tuition Pricing Structure below).
Classical Sivananda Yoga will be the foundation that you learn to teach upon.

Hybrid scheduling between block scheduling and module-based scheduling (some subjects - anatomy, philosophy, sacred texts, teaching methodology, history, asana and more will be taught every weekend; other topics will be focused on in a workshop capacity – chakras, Ayurveda, kriyas and more).
Practice teaching happens the VERY FIRST DAY!!
Lunch time together builds a stronger bond and community in the program (if you eat and meditate together...harmony can be created).
Unlimited Yoga Class at Studio 11 from the start to end of the program (applies if both Module 1 and Module 2 are purchased together).
Specialized projects (one will help educate you about different student concerns/illnesses, one that includes yogic elements you are passionate about and more).
Opportunity to add a nutritional cleanse and guidance of the yogic diet as part of the training program (additional fees apply).
Homework - we are professional educators and having researched the best way to retain and learn information, we found that when you write and recite the information the retention is higher, see more information here and here.

Yoga Lineage and Inspiration
Studio 11 and owner Tiiu Gennert (ERYT-500 and college professor), is partnering with Bliss for EveryBody's Julie Brown (ERYT-500), to provide an in-depth and thorough dive into the culture and practice of yoga. Both have trained at International Sivananda Vedanta Center Ashrams and continue to be inspired by the classical lineage. This training program is greatly inspired by the ashram experience, with mini-satsangs, pranayama, asana, selfless service and much more. Training location is in the beautiful and historic neighborhood of Tremont - Studio 11 - 2337 W 11st Street Suite #2, Cleveland, OH.
