We are excited to be offering Three approximately one year courses for those who would like a chance to be in either a weekly or weekend class that can help you to develop a personal yoga practice and to improve gradually each month. The Courses are taught by Center For Yoga of Seattle Director Richard Schachtel, one of the Northwest's Most Experienced Yoga Teachers

Too often yoga classes and courses never get anywhere as new students are constantly joining the class, casually trying it out, and then the course ends, only to be starting over again.

The 45 session Daytime & Weekend Yoga Practitioner Courses or the 18 Session Weekend Practitioner Courses are for those who want to be in a more elite learning environment, one which progresses gradually to allow the students to get comfortable with a deeper and more powerful practice. The course is not for those who need a slower or gentle yoga class. But otherwise all are welcome to register and join this exclusive type of yoga course. Even beginners to Iyengar Yoga are welcome to enroll.

Richard teaches the Iyengar Method of Yoga which emphasis developing a practice with a high degree of precision of alignment.
