Find a Teacher
Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers (CIYTs) train for years and pass rigorous assessments in order to receive permission to teach. Our teachers are thoroughly grounded in anatomy, philosophy, and all aspects of yoga asana (postures). CIYTs know how to guide students of all ages and abilities. Deep-seated understanding and experience of the yoga asana allow CIYTs to teach to the students in front of them, whether they are younger, older, athletic, or have physical limitations.
Look for the Iyengar Yoga Certification Mark* to guarantee a yoga experience that’s safe, suitable for individual physical conditions, and beneficial for both body and mind.

In accordance with his lifetime contribution to the art, science, and philosophy of yoga, B.K.S.Iyengar pursued trademark protection to ensure that yoga associated with his name reflects his work. As of August 14, 2007 the name "IYENGAR" associated with "YOGA" has been registered as a trademark and is protected in the United States in connection with the teaching of Iyengar Yoga.
Because the Iyengar name is trademarked, only Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers in good standing are permitted to use "Iyengar Yoga" to describe their yoga programs or classes. Teachers who are not certified in the Iyengar method are not permitted to represent or describe their classes using the word “Iyengar” in any way. They may not claim to teach “Iyengar Yoga” or any variant of that label, such as “Iyengar influenced,” “Iyengar based,” or “Iyengar style.”
