IYENGAR YOGA – Teacher Training Program (TTP)
WHAT IS IYENGAR YOGA – TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM?
This unique TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM is designed to meet the needs of yoga students who wish to deepen their experience and understanding of yoga as well as for those who envision teaching and for those who already teach yoga, in the tradition of IYENGAR YOGA. This 2 years program is created with direct input and continuous guidance from Guruji BKS Iyengar and Gitaji Iyengar.
The program offers studies with world's best teachers, along with a complete curriculum encompassing over 400 hours of training. The information provided below is a broad outline of the teacher training program and the commitment required in terms of time, energy and cost.
Although this program prepares you to appear for assessments of INTRODUCTORY LEVEL 1 & 2 certificates, (which has international recognition), it is, more importantly, a journey of personal growth that furthers your own practice on a physical, mental and spiritual level. After gaining a firm theoretical and practical foundation, you will then integrate this understanding into the art of teaching yoga.
In guruji's words, “Teaching yoga is a very difficult subject, but it is one of the best services you can do for human beings. Work, not as a teacher, but as a learner in the art of teaching”
Preparing you to be a best learner – is the objective of this program.
