Becoming an Iyengar Yoga Teacher is a rewarding and challenging experience. Like anything worthwhile, the training requires commitment and discipline. The Teacher Training Course at Marrickville Yoga Centre offers the basic techniques of teaching yoga in the Iyengar method and prepares trainees to achieve accreditation as a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher.
Over a period of two years, trainees will attend a series of weekend workshops to develop an overall understanding of the methods of teaching asana and pranayama as developed by B.K.S. Iyengar.
The Course is facilitated by Senior Iyengar teacher Simon Joannou and has been designed to equip all trainees with the necessary skills, knowledge and practical experience to teach yoga in the Iyengar method.
