Becoming a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) requires years of practice, study and a rigorous examination of skills. For teachers, the Certification Mark demonstrates a commitment to maintaining the purity, excellence and high standards of Iyengar Yoga.
If you are interested in pursuing Iyengar yoga certification, we encourage you to attend classes taught by our certified teachers. Our teachers help students develop by providing feedback and offering new ideas.
Additionally, a consistent personal practice is an essential component of Iyengar yoga and a core requirement for teaching certification in the Iyengar system. Open practice at the studio is an opportunity to grow your practice in the presence of other students, without a teacher’s instruction.
We also have a study group for students interested in deepening their understanding of yoga philosophy and how it relates to asana and pranayama practice.
Certification as an Iyengar yoga teacher follows years of dedicated study, both individually and under the direct guidance of a mentor. It culminates in assessment administered by the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the US (IYNAUS). Details can be found on the IYNAUS website.
Our certified teachers are happy to discuss the process of becoming a CIYT, the level of commitment required and opportunities for study currently offered at the studio. Contact the studio for more details.
