All teachers of Iyengar yoga are trained to very high standards and are fully insured; this is part of the reason that Iyengar yoga is one of the most widely practised methods of yoga worldwide.

The Introductory teacher training course lasts two years with 120 hours contact time in teacher training classes as well as attendance at a regular class and a daily personal practice. The trainee must also complete a number of written papers including lesson planning and anatomy papers and pass a rigorous assessment. Intermediate and Senior teachers have been practising for many more years and have passed a series of further assessments.  All Iyengar teachers are required to maintain their professional development each year to qualify for continued use of of the Iyengar Certification Mark.
