Six Life-Changing Modules
The 500-Hour Sri Yoga™ Teacher Training is divided into six modules that can be taken in any order.
The Art of Transformation
Module 1: The Art of Transformation
Sun Moon Fire: Everyday Techniques for Enlightened Living
From conception to the present moment, your Prana (intelligent life force) has been the leading voice. In this 45 hour training, we explore the fundamentals of energy (prana) management. Learn how to employ the three main practices of yoga, Lunar (Steady the Mind) , Solar (Build Physical and Mental Stamina) ,and Fire (Transformational) to change your life for the better now. Transformation happens on all levels and dimensions as we explore and support our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual bodies.
Module 2: The Art of Transformation
Chakras, Kundalini and the Path of Self-Healing
Through the alchemy of asana, pranayama, and meditation and other daily Energy Managements tools we learn how control and master Prana (our life force). In this 45 hour immersion, we work with the subtle body (Nadis, Chakras, Vayus, Agni, and Kundalini) to transform our lives physically, mentally, and emotionally. We will map out and apply techniques to cultivate balance in our Nadis and Chakras, build and harness our Agni, the transformational fire, to create permanent change in our lives. Learn how to work with chakras through Laya Yoga (yoga of dissolving), to free ourselves of physical, mental, and emotional baggage. Practice asana from the “mind of the endocrine system” for a unique and powerful experience as we go even deeper into the mystical aspects of our nervous systems.
The Art of Transcendence
Module 3: The Art of Transcendence
Koshas: The Journey from Self to Soul
In this training, you will gain more mastery over your physical and energetic bodies to clear your space for more effective transmission. Become more than a yoga teacher. Become an innovator and conduit for the deeper teachings of yoga. In this mini-immersion, you will have an opportunity to take your practice and understanding of the yoga teachings to a new, experiential level, enabling you to teach from a place of deep “knowing.” We will go to the heart of Yoga by expanding your light so that you can ignite the light of others. By transcending our limiting beliefs and Ego, we learn to walk our talk and take our yoga off the mat in a practical way. More advanced asana, pranayama, meditation, and healing techniques will be introduced, with an emphasis on the experiential aspects.
Module 4: The Art of Transcendence
Wake up and Manifest Your Resplendent Life
“You can’t always get what you want.” Or can you? In this training we discuss the 4 states of consciousness: Awake, Dreaming, Deep Sleep and Turiya. Investigate how the mind works, storyboarding the movie of your life. Unearth the parts of us that sabotage (vikalpas) and learn how you can replace those parts with your heart’s desire (sankalpa). Experience technologies such as mantra meditation and Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) and why they are powerful tools in helping you manifest your more expanded reality, as well tools to help you reduce stress and gain clarity. This session will help you become a clearer channel for all that you seek, as you learn techniques that you can apply to your classroom, as well as techniques only appropriate for your personal practice.
The Art of Transmission
Module 5: The Art of Transmission - Harnessing your Power to Heal
Patanjali talks about sukha, “good space” and dukha, “bad space” inside our body/mind. In this module, you will deepen your understanding behind the science of asana and learn how to clear your space in order to be a more effective conduit for joy and resplendence. This increased level of clarity will allow you to bring your highest Self more fully into every aspect of your life, both on and off the mat. More advanced pranayama, meditation, and healing techniques will be introduced, with an emphasis on the experiential aspects.
Module 6: The Art of Transmission - Alchemy of the Body and Spirit
Say no to your Saboteurs! Say yes to your Highest Self! Fulfill your life’s purpose with confidence! Deepen your understanding behind the science of yoga and learn how to be an effective conduit for joy (Jyoti) and resplendence (Sri). Increase your sensitivity and learn how to access your “inner voice of truth.” This deep listening (Nada) brings an increased level of self-healing and clarity, as you learn how to transmit the teachings of yoga, both on and off the mat.

Jean Mazzei and Brenna Geehan, Directors of Sri Yoga, have collectively taught yoga for over 40 years. Both women knew at a young age that teaching was a passion and that it was their ultimate desire to inspire and guide new teachers.
Because of their synergistic relationship, they decided to combine forces and create Sri Yoga ™, a program that teaches yogic techniques and world view in addition to assisting trainees in finding their own unique voice in the classroom.
They give thanks to their teachers Yogarupa Rod Stryker, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Dennis Adams and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.
“Jean and Brenna give you all of the tools you need to live a more fearless and more joyous life. These tools come from the most ancient teachings, but are broken down in a way that anyone and everyone can understand. You will leave the training with some aspect of your life completely altered, and because of this you will be motivated to continue with your practice of shaping your beautiful life with the most supreme sense of joy. Once you’ve been exposed to these teachings, you will not be able to go back to old patterns of thinking and being that don’t serve you—your only choice will be to move forward and evolve.
You become solid and confident in who you are and the clarity you gain will be evident to your students every time you teach. You come out of this training as the shining example for not only your students, but everyone that you come across in life—and for that, thank you.”
