Bloom’s well-respected teacher training programs offer the support, mentorship, and individual feedback you need to become the practitioner and teacher you want to be. We empower our trainees to find safe, skillful, and inspiring ways to bring the practice they love to others. With a refreshing blend of expertise and humor, our teacher trainers bring Bloom’s solid curriculum to life in a fun and engaging way that honors the yoga tradition while incorporating modern evidence-based wisdom.

We offer the following Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School (RYS) programs on a yearly basis:

200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program: October – April

Develop your authentic teaching voice and share your unique approach to the practice with others. Bloom's experienced teachers can support you in teaching in a variety of styles and approaches: hatha, vinyasa, gentle, chair yoga, restorative, or a combination!


85 hour Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training Program: May – July

Become a more versatile and marketable teacher by learning to share yoga with pregnant students. Whether you would like to teach a prenatal-specific class, or you just want to feel more confident when a pregnant student attends your other classes, this program will give you the knowledge and experience you need to be a safer and more skillful yoga teacher.

First Registered July 2011

    I was very impressed with Bloom's Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training. I loved the hybrid model offered and felt discussions were thorough and informative. I felt very prepared to teach prenatal classes upon graduation.

    Bloom's yoga program was intricately crafted with the highest intention to create well rounded yoga practitioners who account for the needs of yogis of all shapes, ethnicities, races, and abilities. The philosophical yoga principles were lived by each instructor who taught us anatomy, alignment, ethics, and more, which allowed each trainee, including myself, to blossom into a confident, and fully expressed yoga teacher. I can't express enough how satisfied and grateful I am to Bloom's yoga teacher training program!

    Bloom Yoga Studio's 200 hour training was amazing. The program was so comprehensive and holistic. I'm so grateful for the education I received in anatomy, yogic philosophy, asana, pranayama and meditation, and teaching skills. The program's specific focus on cultural humility and honoring yoga's South Asian roots was especially important to me in choosing a 200 hour training. And the Lead Trainers all have such a deep understanding of yoga. Overall, every aspect of this program seems to have been chosen with intentionality and care, and I now feel equipped with the tools and skills to teach this beautiful practice to others while continuing to deepen my own!

    Going through Bloom's training was an incredible experience! The program they've created is thorough, supportive, thoughtful and fun. It has deepened my practice in countless ways, most of which I wasn't even expecting. Our trainers were kind, encouraging, and wise and created an atmosphere of trust and learning. The connections I've made with my cohort are ones that I will treasure and I'm sure will continue to inspire me. If you are considering Bloom for your teacher training-I cannot recommend them highly enough!

    Such a wonderful experience. The trainers are all so knowledgeable, kind, and supportive, and bring many different prospectives to the program, which I really noticed and appreciated right from the start. I loved the variety of modules included and there was much conversation, connection, practice and growth. After going through this training, I feel changed for the better, in my yoga practice and as a person as a whole.

    Bloom Yoga Studio's 200 hour YTT is quite literally the best thing I've ever done for myself and was truly a life-changing experience. The lead trainers are extraordinary in their knowledge, instruction, compassion, and encouragement. The program is incredibly comprehensive and thoughtful; including modules for trauma sensitivity, cultural appropriation/appreciation and decolonization, along with traditional teachings of Asana, the history of Yoga, meditation, and Pranayama. I learned so much about Yoga, and so much about myself, all while making life-long friends. Bloom's teacher training was an absolutely incredible, invaluable experience that I am forever grateful for and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to become certified and/or to simply deepen their own experience and practice. Thank you, Bloom!

    The prenatal training program was rigorous, thorough, and super supportive. I felt more than prepared to teach prenatal yoga by the end. Jessie, Lucy, and Kerry are all super knowledgeable and experienced teachers and kind individuals. My intuition about training here was more than affirmed—thank you!!!
