Why does Iyengar require so much training from its teachers?
Iyengar yoga teachers have the strictest requirements for certification out of any of the yoga schools.
Iyengar yoga teachers are subject to some of the most strict requirements for certification out of any of the yoga traditions. To undertake yoga teacher training students will already have been practicing Iyengar yoga for a minimum of 3 years. A following 3 years of teacher training with a certified Iyengar yoga instructor is required in order to apply for assessment. A teacher cannot use the name Iyengar yoga alongside their name until they have been formally certified by the Iyengar Yoga Association.
Teachers must understand the anatomy of the body, the way in which each asana and pranayama fit together in sequences, as well as being able to demonstrate an understanding of how the postures can be adapted to the varying needs of their students.
Pixie Lillas started yoga in 1976 with Dona Holleman in Italy and first went to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1977.
She co-founded the Balmain Iyengar Yoga Studio in 1980 and has been director and principal teacher there ever since. As well as teaching at the BIYS, Pixie runs teacher training courses and workshops in Australia and in Europe.
Pixie has been closely involved with the BKS Iyengar Yoga Association since it started in 1985 and with the running of assessments for teacher certification since that time. Pixie continues to go back to study with the Iyengars on an almost yearly basis.
She currently holds a Junior Advanced certificate.
What is yoga vastu?
Vastu is the vedic science of architecture, it is about harmony in design
Vastu Shastra (vāstu śāstra) applies to the physical world what the asanas and pranayamas apply to your body. It has similarities to feng shui in Indian culture and aims to achieve harmony amongst the objects and world that surrounds you.
Yoga Vastu was created to represent the important second pillar of Iyengar yoga: the indispensable element of home practice.
Many students are able to make it to classes and engage very positively with their teachers, but when it comes to maintaining a regular practice that they do at home, things start to fall apart.
Our objective is to provide the professional instruction that you receive in a class but available to you at any time from the comfort of your home.
