I've been making regular visits with my gynaecologist for the past 25 years. In recent years I developed benign cysts in my breasts. My gynaecologist recommended physical activity as preventative medicine. I tried many different sports for many years including kayaking. I also decided to start studying yoga. I tried a few different styles, including Kundalini Yoga, and worked with many different yoga teachers. Six months ago I met Maya Michelle and decided to start work with her. Her teaching style struck me as very incisive, intuitive and detail-oriented. She does not skip over basics and she makes sure I know what I'm doing and why I'm doing it! I feel stronger in my body, more confident and clearer about my practice. But that's not all! After 6 months I had my regular check up with the gynaecologist.  This is the first year I have ever had a diagnosis without any cysts.My gynaecologist was astonished after so many years diagnosing me with my yearly checkups and no improvement. I am so happy! I can barely believe it! Iyengar Yoga really works! I highly recommend a certified and qualified teacher like Maya Michelle!

Iyengar Certification Process – Why Practice with an Iyengar Teacher?

Our world is now populated with many yoga teachers and there is little regulation. A yoga teacher certificate can be purchased after attending a yoga workshop nearly anywhere. 

Mr Iyengar created a rigorous certification process for CIYTs (Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers) which is incomparable with Yoga Alliance Accreditation. The certification process for Iyengar Yoga Teachers might be compared to a Master’s Degree and Doctoral Programs. 

Prospective students must first apply for admission to the teacher training program. The application includes proof of a minimum 3 years consecutive practice, plus at least one recommendation from a CIYT who has followed and can verify their practice. Upon approval, the candidate must then pass an entry examination, which is the final assessment for program admission. 

Iyengar Teacher Training Courses last 3 years. Once the candidate is accepted to the teacher training program, they must pass 2 rigorous assessments that are critiqued by 3 outside examiners, who are not teachers from the training program. If the candidate passes their first examination, which is taken at the end of 2 years, the Intermediate 1 certification is valid only for 1 year. 

To become a CITY, the candidate must complete that last year of the 3-year program, and prepare for and pass the second assessment, certification Intermediate 2. 

Once an Iyengar Teacher has Intermediate 2 certification, they continue studying and apprenticing with Senior CIYTs, which is might be compared  to CEUs or continuing education credits for professionals with Master Degrees.
