Study with a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT)
Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers (CIYTs) must train for years and pass rigorous assessments to receive certification to teach. Our teachers are thoroughly grounded in anatomy, philosophy, and all aspects of yoga asana. CIYTs know how to guide students of all ages and abilities. Deep-seated understanding and experience of the yoga asanas (postures) allow them to teach appropriately to the group in front of them, whether they are younger, older, athletic, or have physical limitations.
Ability to clearly demonstrate the postures. Sharp observation skills. Effective teaching points. These are the marks of a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. Classes are sequenced to promote health and skill in the body and stability in the mind. This total approach ensures that students progress from posture to posture, class to class, and year to year.
The Iyengar Yoga Certification Mark is your guarantee of a yoga experience that’s safe, suitable for individual physical conditions, and beneficial for both body and mind.
