Drømmer du om at blive International certifikeret Iyengar yoga lærer, eller fordybe dig mere i yogaen hos Copenhagen yoga?

Optagelseskrav: Det generelle optagelseskrav på uddannelsen til IYENGAR® yoga lærer er, at man skal have praktiseret IYENGAR® yoga i minimum 3 år og i denne periode løbende har modtaget undervisning af en certificeret IYENGAR® yoga lærer.

Potentielle kandidater opfordres til at tage en snak om deres kvalifikationer med copenhagenyoga inden uddannelsen påbegyndes.
Udover at leve op til de formelle adgangskrav til uddannelsen til IYENGAR® yoga lærer, er det vigtigt at forstå, at der er tale om en spændende, men også krævende uddannelse.
At praktisere IYENGAR® yoga med det mål at kunne formidle B.K.S Iyengars unikke metode stiller hver enkelt af os overfor ganske betydelige krav om modenhed, arbejdsomhed, vedholdenhed og selvdisciplin.

Uddannelsens formål er at lære aspiranterne korrekt selvpraksis af asanas og pranayama baseret på B.K.S. Iyengars metode og dernæst kunsten at formidle denne indsigt gennem undervisning. Intentionen med uddannelsen er, at gøre aspiranten så fortrolig med B.K.S. Iyengars metode, at han/hun kan bestå eksamen til det af B.K.S. anerkendte Introductory level I og II certifikat efter de tre års uddannelse.

Eksamen falder i slutningen af 3 år af uddannelsen, og foregår på engelsk med udenlandske assessorer.

*
Certifikatet er internationalt anerkendt og gør det muligt at undervise i IYENGAR® yoga hvor som helst på jorden.

* *
Eksamen finder sted på baggrund af en liste med ca. 60 stillinger og enkelte pranayamas, som aspiranten skal udføre. Derudover skal aspiranten til eksamen undervise en mindre gruppe begyndere.

* * *
Uddannelsen er opdelt i tre års kurser alle med fokus på den konstante bestræbelse på at studere og indkredse essensen af B.K.S. Iyengars metode. Disse tre års kurser skal tages/bestås i rækkefølge.
