There are many styles of yoga, all with their own merit. However, from my experience Iyengar Yoga (IY) provides us with an honest and clear methodology, always building each pose from the foundation up to create stability and balance within our body and mind. It is one of the world’s most influential and widely practiced methods of yoga.

IY emphasizes proper alignment of the body and it encourages the use of props (blocks, straps, blankets & chairs) to help students safely attain the maximum benefits.

The three defining characteristics of IY are:

Technicalities, Sequencing, and Timing.

It is an excellent practice for students of any age or ability.

Mr. Iyengar (Dec 14, 1918-Aug 20,2014) lived in Puna, India and dedicated his life to the practice of yoga. A very Happy Birthday to him if he were alive today, he’s 100 as of December 14, 2019.

Yoga teachers in the United States are not required to be certified. Many professional teachers do complete a 200 hour training course, and some pursue a general yoga certification. Iyengar Yoga Certification is considered the “gold standardbecause it is the most rigorous teacher certification program in the world. Candidates for Iyengar Yoga must study for a minimum of three years, complete a 500 hour training or equivalent program, complete an apprenticeship and pass two levels of intense testing and evaluation.

For Iyengar yoga certification, teachers are evaluated on more than 45 different criteria, including the clarity of their interaction, their ability teach poses to a wide range of students, and their skill in observing and correcting students. Assessment includes demonstrated practice, pranayama, and a comprehensive written test the includes knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology, Yoga Philosophy, Sanskrit, and teaching concepts. For each examination, candidates are evaluated in person by a panel of three CIYT assessors over a 2 day period. It does happen for candidates to have to test more than once to pass a level.
