Becoming an Iyengar Yoga Teacher is a rewarding and challenging experience. Like anything worthwhile, the training requires commitment and discipline. CHYS has been running TT programs for over 15 years and many of Melbourne’s best-known yoga teachers completed their training here. When you do your training at CHYS you are doing more than a course – you are becoming part of a yoga community.
The style of training is both theoretical and practical, with a real emphasis on learning in a live environment. Our aim is to provide trainees with both a theoretical grounding in the subject of yoga, underpinned with the practical skills needed to teach a yoga. The course instills a strong discipline for independent practice, gives an overall understanding of teaching Asana and Pranayama in accordance with the method developed by BKS Iyengar, and introduces the study of human anatomy and yoga philosophy. The program prepares students for the BKS Iyengar Yoga Association of Australia certificate examination. More details of the assessment are available to download on the BKS Iyengar Yoga Association website.
Marina Jung, our senior teacher, runs the teacher training program at CHYS. She is Melbourne’s most senior female yoga teacher, a senior assessor on the Iyengar Yoga Assessment Committee, and has been teaching Iyengar yoga for nearly 30 years. She has an excellent record of progressing trainee teachers through the demanding certification examinations required for Iyengar teachers.
The teacher training program runs for two years, with students completing over 300 hours of study/learning, and over 100 hours of practical experience in classes. Once the main training is completed completed, students will be able to sit for their assessment when Marina deems they are ready. Students are also required to attend weekly Advanced classes at the studio all through the program. It is a significant, but incredibly worthwhile, commitment.
Dedicating more time to the pursuit of yoga and teaching yoga, is an endless process that will start with the first two years of this course, and should then continue to grow over your lifetime.
