Background and Training of Teachers

The B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States, Inc. (IYNAUS), oversees training of teachers in Iyengar Yoga. This training is designed to ensure that Iyengar Yoga teachers have a mature knowledge and regular practice of this discipline. An Iyengar Yoga teacher instructs yoga in the method set forth by B.K.S. Iyengar without mixing in other styles of yoga or other disciplines; receives continuing instruction from the RIMYI in

Pune, India, or from intermediate or advanced Iyengar teachers; acknowledges the governing influence of the teaching of B.K.S. Iyengar on his or her practice and teaching of yoga; and maintains a regular personal practice of Iyengar Yoga. Training as a teacher of Iyengar Yoga generally takes at least two years to complete, and is one of the most rigorous in the field of yoga.
