200 HOUR YOGA ALLIANCE TEACHER TRAINING
WITH LES LEVENTHAL – 2 LIFESTYLES, 1 LIFETIME
Bliss Wellness is delighted to offer a 200-hour yoga teacher training program led by master teacher Les Leventhal. This program is a great way to develop the skills to teach yoga or to take your personal practice to a deeper level. Les’ program meets Yoga Alliance requirements for 200-hour teacher training programs, and covers anatomy, asana, alignment, pranayama, philosophy, and sequencing. You will also assist and observe experienced teachers and learn how to observe, assess, and adjust students safely in asana poses.
Studying yoga at a deep and personal level requires a supportive and like-minded community (satsang). In our program you will study alongside other students, where you’ll share your experiences and findings in an intimate and encouraging environment. You will also develop the knowledge and skills to supercharge your own personal practice (sadhana), which will serve you for your entire life.
This training will be led by Les Leventhal, a highly experienced and much-loved teacher. Les has completed extensive training with Ana Forrest and also trains with Max Strom, Tias Little, and Seane Corn. Les teaches classes, workshops, and teacher trainings worldwide, and will provide you with all the tools you need to teach safe and effectively-sequenced classes to everyone from beginners to seasoned practitioners. This training will give you a solid grounding in philosophy, anatomy, wisdom, prenatal classes, injuries, nutrition, safe hands-on adjustments, ethics, business, and chanting. It will also help you to cultivate the courage and truth you will need to deepen your personal practice and to find your own voice as a teacher.
Yoga with Les is a vinyasa/flow yoga practice. For many years, Les was one of San Francisco’s most popular and sought-after teachers. Nowadays, he lives in Ubud, Bali, and teaches around the world. Les’ classes, workshops, and video podcasts are filled with all the basic technique and alignment cues you will need to get your yoga practice and teaching started. A long-time student of Ana Forrest, and a graduate of several of her teacher training programs, Les has also assisted Ana with teacher training’s and studied many additional hours with her. He has also completed several training’s with Tias Little, from whom he has learned many of his alignment and technique cues. Tias has also provided him with a firm foundation in the Eightfold path of Buddhism, which brings a sense of grace and elegance to his asana practice. Les’ teaching is always inclusive, never exclusive, and accessible to students of any background.
Les’ yoga teaching will give you an opportunity to heal your heart, laugh, cry, dance, and simply let go. Some classes flow freely, while others explore longer holds. Many are accompanied by music. Les always offers students the opportunity to modify poses. When you learn to take better care of yourself, you can then take better care of those around you, a ripple effect that can gradually change the world.

Andrew came to Yoga through injury and crisis, and his initiation in the Tantric Yoga tradition began in 1997. This led him to explore the healing potential of yoga and it’s benefits towards Physical and Mental Health.

His Creative, Joyful and Heart-filled teaching strengthens the body, soothes and clears the mind, whilst enlivening the Spirit through both Postural and Universal Alignment*.

Andrew also graduated from the Ikon (Phoenix) Institute of Australia in 2001, in Transpersonal Counselling, with a very clear vision that his gifts and passions were best directed in the power of group, mythology and the potent healing energy that is exchanged in each others stories, both personal and Universal. Being an already well respected and established yoga teacher, he spent the 15 years combining his love of Yoga with his passion for healing Transpersonal work to create Transformative spaces for his students and participants to heal and become more whole.
