Yoga Teachers at Yoga on Tay
Iyengar Yoga Trainee Teachers
Iyengar Introductory 1 and 2
To train as an Iyengar teacher it is necessary to have attended 3 years of classes, then be selected as having the potential to become a teacher, before embarking on the 2 year teacher training course (or the 3 year mentoring programme). This concludes with a test paper and a practical assessment of the trainee's poses and teaching ability.
This rigorous training system ensures a consistently high standard of teaching by any Iyengar teacher, from introductory level upwards, and ensures that even newly qualified teachers will have suitable grounding and experience in their yoga practice.
We are pleased that several of our students are currently training to be teachers, and those in the final stages of their training are keen to share their learning, and to learn themselves, by teaching a 'community class'. Details of any current community classes can be found on the class timetable.
