becoming an instructor

Many of us are called to deepen our practice. Whether that means you will lead group classes, work with people one on one or simply use your knowledge to build upon your own practice, Fly High Teacher Training will be a life changing experience.


Bliss Yoga is home to the Fly High Teacher Training with lead trainer, Angie Cherry and many special guests. Fly High is not only a Registered Yoga School but a Registered Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, offering quality, applicable training and continuing education for the last four years. We look forward to sharing our program with you if you are inspired to be a part of our tribe!

Taking Fly High Teacher Training with Angie Cherry and receiving my 200 HR RYT Certification changed my life. We covered everything from anatomy, sequencing and the eight limbs of yoga to how to market yourself as a yoga instructor and run your own business. Angie gave me space and time to develop my skills as a Vinyasa teacher and was available outside of class to answer my questions and provide me with invaluable guidance. Our class graduated in August of 2017 and I was so prepared coming out of teacher training that I was hired by two yoga studios in September. Angie continues to support me on my journey as a yoga teacher and you will not find another 200 HR Teacher Training that is as in-depth and professional as Fly High.

Special Guests

“I believe that there is not one way, but many paths that can take you to one destination. It is this philosophy that lit the fire to bring in special guests. Each instructor is someone I love and and admire. They have something to offer you, and something different than what I can offer alone. Together, we make this program more meaningful and diverse.” – Angie Cherry
