What is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher?
All of our instructors are Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers(CIYTs) and this certification was earned through meeting the guidelines originally set by BKS Iyengar and most recently modified by Prashant and Abhijata Iyengar in 2020. Our teachers became certified through passing a rigorous three part assessment comprised of a written exam, a demonstration of their practice of asanas, and being observed teaching. The standards to become a certified Iyengar yoga teacher are recognized as the most comprehensive and thorough worldwide. For example, before a student applies for assessment three years of continuous study with a certified teacher are required. Thus becoming a CIYT represents years of practice and study.
Our mission is to offer yoga taught in the Iyengar tradition inclusive to all in a safe supportive environment for our student’s continued health and well-being.
