Going Up!

I submitted my application for Iyengar Assessment. This has been a goal of mine since I understood what Iyengar Yoga means. I started teaching in 2013, when I was basically a baby in yoga. I made mistakes, taught from what little knowledge I could gleam from my Iyengar books, and my teachers, and knew that I needed more.

I set a goal to become a certified Iyengar Teacher by 2017. In the Iyengar system you have to be practicing only the Iyengar method for at least 3 years, and committed to teaching only the Iyengar method. You must either:
  a. graduate from a certified 2-3 year Iyengar Teacher Training program, or have accumulated
  b. have 90 hours of teacher education from a Certified Iyengar Teacher and 90 hours of mentor ship with a Certified Iyengar Teacher
  c. 180 hours of mentor ship with a Certified Iyengar mentor.

mentoring includes:
- attending classes
- observing classes
- assisting classes
- supervised teaching
- email and phone contact
- supervised practice
- apprentices…
