About the Iyengar system

Iyengar Yoga has the most rigorous teacher training programme and assessment process for yoga teachers in the world. Directed by the Iyengar family from the Institute in Pune, there are clear guidelines that set out how teacher trainees should be mentored, encouraged and assessed.

This is so that Iyengar Yoga teachers are well-prepared to support any students that come to them to practice yoga, no matter their ailment or issue.

Iyengar Yoga teacher training is for a minimum of three years. During this time, the teacher trainee focuses on:

Personal practice

Acquiring clarity when giving instructions

Learning to make subtle adjustments with the use of equipment

Understanding problems faced by specific individuals
