Registration is NOW OPEN for the
2018 Yoga Teacher Training Program

277-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program 


This intensive 277-Hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program is designed to deepen your practice and create the energetic shift necessary to become a Traditional Yoga Teacher; a journey that requires commitment, patience and dedication. Therefore, my program is extended over the course of 10 months during which we will meet twice per week for 3-hour sessions. This gives you a chance to digest the information slowly and apply it to your practice. In order to ensure a learning experience of uncompromising quality, participation is limited to 16 Yoga Teacher Trainees per year.

The goal of this program is to allow you to immerse yourself in a Yogic lifestyle for an entire year. To that end, we will practice and explore multiple Hatha Yoga lineages including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, ViniYoga with a therapeutic focus, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. This in depth knowledge of anatomy and multiple styles of Hatha Yoga will empower you to become your own teacher and lead intuitive Yoga classes based on a deep understanding of the principles of Yoga and their purpose.

Please note that, even though the cost of the program ($3,800) is similar to other YTTs, the requirements to complete this program are significantly higher than the minimum requirements established by the Yoga Alliance. ***Detailed program description will be given to each student on the first day of class. If you are looking for a quick, easy way to get certified, this program is NOT for you.***   This YTT program is for students who are ready, willing and able to commit to Spiritual growth and invest the time and effort necessary to create an energetic shift in their lives.

In addition
to completing this YTT Program, I strongly recommend you choose to complete the Traditional Long Form Usui Reiki Level 1 & 2 Certification in order to assist in your Spiritual, mental, emotional and physical growth. This is necessary because, when teaching Yoga, you need practical awareness of the energy transference happening in your classroom. This 10 week Reiki Class is offered in the Spring and Fall for an additional cost of $750 in a group. Or you may schedule a private class for $1,800. The Reiki Level 1 & 2 certification can be completed before, during or after the YTT.  

If you are interested in attending this intensive program, please complete the application and email me at to schedule an interview.

"After a long search of Yoga Teacher Training programs, I knew 100% that Bliss Yoga Academy was the right fit. Not only is Sarah knowledgeable in the practice of yoga, but she gives 100% of herself when teaching her students how to be the BEST yoga instructors out there. As a practicing Physical Therapist, I wanted to find a program that would offer thorough, in depth knowledge of all lineages, the benefits of every yoga posture both physically and energetically, and most importantly, how to be comfortable and energetically strong as Yoga Teachers. I would HIGHLY recommend Sarah Cardenas and Bliss Yoga Academy for your Yoga Teacher Training Program!"
