Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training

What is an Iyengar Yoga Teacher?

An Iyengar Yoga teacher must complete rigorous training to become a fully qualified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. The Iyengar Yoga method is recognised and respected as one of the most deeply faceted forms as it holds a practical, philosophical and spiritual value for all. An Iyengar Yoga teaching certificate is valid worldwide.

Only Certified Iyengar Teachers are entitled to use the name of yoga master BKS Iyengar and his teaching method. Each Certified Teacher is committed to upholding the excellence and purity of Iyengar Yoga, one of the words most widely practiced yogas.
