2018 Teacher Training at Iyengar Yoga South Bay

Iyengar Yoga South Bay has been training teachers in the Iyengar method for several years. We have supported many students through the assessment process to become Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers (CIYTs). The mission of our teacher training programs is to support students to become clear and effective teachers by deepening their study of all eight limbs of yoga. We are an IYNAUS (Iyengar Yoga National Association of the US) approved teacher training program whose completion meets the education requirements to apply for the introductory level of assessment and upon successful completion become a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. We also offer on-going teacher education for CIYTs interested in continuing their path of study to refine their teaching skills at the Intermediate levels.
