Our Yoga Teachers
Harriet Bhumi Russell could not serve fully without the help of the other teachers, staff, and karma yoga volunteers. We all share a common interest in the well-being of our students.
Our yoga teachers, each certified by Bhumi's Yoga and Wellness Center, are an integral part of the community. These devoted souls teach and take classes with Bhumi, continuing to learn and share what they love.
Bhumi's Yoga is primarily a training and workshop center with a limited number of regular
weekly classes, but our over 200 graduate teachers teach outreach
programs at hospitals, recreation centers, and wellness facilities
and other yoga studios around the Cleveland area. There are over 200 Bhumi's Certified Teachers in Ohio alone. The more yoga, the better!
Following are the senior teaching staff for Bhumi's
classes and programs.
All teachers are certified graduate teachers of Bhumi's Yoga Teacher
RYT means "Registered Yoga Teacher" with the national Yoga Alliance.
