All of our instructors at The Yoga Place are either certified Iyengar teachers or working on becoming certified in the Iyengar method. Becoming an Iyengar Yoga teacher requires years of practice, study, and a rigorous examination of skills. Certified Iyengar instructors teach the method of B.K.S. Iyengar without mixing in other styles or disciplines. They have expertise in demonstrating and instructing the poses, sequencing the poses for particular effects, and observing students and adapting poses for specific needs. They are highly trained, knowledgeable and very experienced. They maintain a regular personal practice and continue to study with senior teachers or by traveling to study at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India. Iyengar teachers are committed to maintaining the purity, excellence, and high standards that have been demonstrated and emphasized by B.K.S. Iyengar.
