Teacher Training Level I

Iyengar Teacher Trainig Year starts January 2018

Yogānuśāsanam:
Introductory Teacher Training Program
in the Lineage of Sri BKS Iyengar

Program Description and Information
We are pleased to announce one more Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training in the Lineage of BKS Iyengar.
Yogānuśāsanam refers to the reverential practice of yoga as a sacred art - the art of integrating body, mind, and breath and uniting the individual soul with the universal spirit. This teacher training program is an opportunity for dedicated students of the Iyengar method to deepen their practice, to establish themselves on the noble path of teaching. The program will provide a comprehensive foundation for students who wish to prepare for the Introductory assessment in the Iyengar system.

You will be personally menthored by Mette Orum and meet with your fellow Teacher training students at Copenhagenyoga studio. Summers is off.

In addition to our regular meetings, we will also host guest teachers  over the years . These will be part of our program and are mandatory.  Students will also be responsible for homework assignments and projects to be completed at home. These will include on-going study, practice, and written assignments.

Once the program begins, students will be expected to (a) take a weekly class with Mette Orum; (b) maintain a daily home practice of asana and pranayama; and (c) attend all Teacher Training program classes.

Program Requirements
1.You must have a clear commitment to the Iyengar method.
2.You must have two years of study in the Iyengar method and have been taking a weekly class with an Iyengar teacher these two years (exceptions to the weekly class requirement will be made for those who don’t have regular access to an Iyengar teacher).

In addition to these two key requirements, we recommend that you have a daily practice that includes inversions (sirsasana, sarvangasana, halasana, setu bandha sarvangasana). We also recommend that you study and learn the complete names of all basic poses in both Sanskrit and English.

Recommendations
While you are in the Teacher Training Program and for this year preceding it, you are strongly encouraged to immerse yourself in the Iyengar method and to study only with Iyengar teachers (exceptions include meditation retreats and anatomy classes).

We recommend that you buy and study these following references:

  1. Yoga in Action:  Preliminary Course, by Geeta Iyengar
  2. Light on Yoga, by BKS Iyengar
  3. Yoga:  A Gem for Women, by Geeta Iyengar
  4. Light on the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, by BKS Iyengar

All four may be purchased from the IYNAUS store at http://iynaus.org/store

The goals of this Teacher Training Program are to give you a thorough immersion in the Iyengar method through an in depth study of the required knowledge and foundational poses of the Introductory syllabi and to develop and refine your teaching skills. However, please note that completion of this Teacher Training Program is only the first step in preparation for certification in Iyengar system: students will typically apprentice with a mentoring Iyengar yoga teacher for at least one year following completion of teacher training before applying for assessment.

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.

Man kan imidlertid godt påbegynde uddannelsens 1.del, Års-kurset uden at have de 3 års erfaring med Iyengar yoga, men man kan ikke kan gå til sin første eksamen før man har de nødvendige 3 års erfaring og fuldført uddannelsens del 2 og 3 (se nedenfor). 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 første del (Års-kurset) er et intensivt års-kursus udelukkende med fokus på intensivering af din selvpraksis.  Her vil du lære what to do - and what NOT to do (-: På denne måde kan du i løbet af et års tid afgøre, om du fortsat ønsker at blive IYENGAR® yoga lærer eller om du i stedet foretrækker at bruge året til at fordybe dig i din egen praksis.

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

* * * *
Ønsker du at gå hele vejen og blive certificeret IYENGAR yoga lærer, så er Årskurset det afgørende fundament for læreruddannelsen, hvis du ikke i forvejen er bekendt med Iyengar yoga og har praktiseret det i minimum 1 år.

Alt skreven materiale  foregår på engelsk  ligesom den endelige eksamen.
