Qualified Iyengar Yoga Teacher
Iyengar yoga has exceptionally high teaching standards.
Prior to being accepted on an Iyengar teacher training course, 3 years practice under an Iyengar teacher must be completed and a preliminary exam passed.
Students will then embark on a 2 years training course (120 hours) and pass exams at Level 1 and Level 2. Only when both exams are passed will a teacher be classed as a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor at Introductory Level. This means they are certified and insured to teach postures on the introductory syllabus only.
Once qualified, teachers must attend regular training with a more senior teacher and attend Professional Development Training to maintain their membership with the Iyengar Association (the governing body).
