Why train with us?
Created by passionate Inna Bliss Yoga senior teachers, our intention was born from a desire to design the most ideal, practical and comprehensive Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training program, passing forward the skills which have most served us in leading high quality yoga classes over many years of teaching.
We are passionate about delivering a truly dynamic and integrative course program that is deeply transformational, for experienced students with an ongoing and consistent yoga practice, whether or not you choose to engage in a teaching role.
For those of you wishing to share the art of yoga with others, this in-depth training and small group mentoring program, will empower and equip you with the practical tools and confidence needed to teach from your own authentic practice, whilst being grounded in your knowledge of clear alignment principles, yoga philosophy and anatomical awareness.
You will learn first hand the components needed to deliver creative and intelligent sequences, to use as part of your teaching tools, and be provided with access to your trainer's key teaching resources, including class plans, themes and playlists.
Upon completion of the course, and under the guidance of your trainer, you will have the opportunity to teach and assist within a live studio setting, across Inna Bliss's three locations, with the prospect to move into permanent teaching roles within our Brisbane studios.

"Inna Bliss is a home away from home. This teacher training went above and beyond all my expectations, and left me feeling excited and capable of practicing as a teacher. My teachers are truly inspiring and wise practitioners and clearly so dedicated in their own studentship. I cannot recommend this training enough."
- Kate, 2017 graduating trainee
"Inna Bliss YTT was both challenging and amazing. I believe it prepared me as much as possible to start exploring this journey of teaching and every day I see myself integrating what I learnt on and off the mat"
- Andrea 2017 graduating trainee
"All three teachers were authentic and committed to producing a life affirming outcome. Students benefited from the diversity of their teachers experience, to build a broad perspective and practice of yoga teaching."
- Roger, 2016 graduating trainee

"I read once that when you dive from the height of your mind down into the deep abyss of your heart that suddenly your world becomes centred. You can trust in yourself because you know you're dreams and desires are coming from the place that harvests all of the positivity in you. When we emerge from this place and walk a path that's true to us - follow dreams that are truest to our hearts desires - the whole universe begins to conspire in supporting us.
This course will broaden your horizons, challenge you physically, mentally and spiritually. It fills you to the brim with knowledge and experience while expanding the space inside that houses the very essence of you. Those who embark on this journey with you become more than classmates and the nurturing and support you receive from Amy, Riss and Marty, both individually and as a team, will have you teaching and reaching for stars you never thought you'd fly to. After extensive research into the continuation of my studies I'm struggling to find any other education like it. The course was so much more than I ever imagined. Each student is so cared for mentally and physically by the individual qualities that each of our teachers brought. Everything from asanas to Sanskrit, anatomy to philosophy & mythology, endless hours of practice to guided meditation with the stunning Alison Potts, the formulation of class sequencing to finding the confidence to guide those into that state of peace you find yourself in yoga. Most importantly the personal journey of understanding the world we live in today, who you are and the place you hold as the unique and authentic individual you are. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Amy, Riss, Marty and Alison for all of effort, support, patience and love they provided. They made the world I live in brighter and guided me in turning the spark inside into a burning flame of confidence and pure utter joy. Thank you. You each hold a scared space in my heart"
- Kellie, 2016 graduating trainee
"Live Your Bliss YTT was life changing. Initially, the course took what I thought I knew about my yoga practice and flipped it on its head. Not only that though; it redefined -- for me at least -- the power of being truly open to all of life's possibilities and being called forth to do something greater than I ever though possible. The process will take you to the edge of your comfort zone and often beyond... but that's where the magic happens and the real learning begins in my experience. As such, I can't recommend this course highly enough!"
- Lachy, 2016 graduating trainee
"Live Your Bliss teacher training was a life-changing, self-changing, yoga-changing experience that I will never forget. From the incredible teachers who poured their hearts, knowledge and beautiful souls into delivering a course that was just way above the standard, to the amazing yogis I met in the course, the luscious retreat at Gymea, and the resources and tools that I left with. Everything was incredible and I would not have had this experience any other way"
- Carly, 2016 graduating trainee
"The opportunity to undertake Teacher Training offered by Inna Bliss in January this year, invited me to invest my heart and energy into intensive training, with an emphasis on contact hours, in depth study, practice, and functional application of yoga in a modern studio setting. In short, it invited me to dig in. I accepted the invitation, excited by the prospect of enriching my Life, deepening my practice, and empowering myself with the skills, confidence and knowledge to rise up to my highest potential, both on and off the mat. Without doubt, the training was intense, practically focussed and empowering (from both a student and a teaching perspective). Also without doubt, it absolutely needed, and deserved, my personal commitment. After all, I was the person making an investment in me, and I was the person best placed to determine the return on my investment. But the work was indeed the reward. This opportunity has been the most wonderful journey of discovery and awakening. My soul was nourished, nurtured and supported by teachers and mentors with a depth of yoga experience, heart, soul, and unfettered passion, for their craft, and Life, and a willingness to share. I discovered that class sequencing is most certainly an art. But more significantly I had the opportunity to discover and give full artistic expression to my authentic self, and to grow to love her unconditionally in the making. My Life has been irrevocably changed and enhanced as a result of accepting your invitation, and I would not hesitate to recommend this training to anyone interested in working to become all their wonderful potential, on or off the yoga mat".
