Iyengar Yoga is such a great form of yoga, so unique, and powerful, and of such a high quality that it should not be missed! This form of yoga has it all: focus, concentration, accessibility, variety, energy, challenge excitement, relaxation, and calm.

These type of progressive immersion courses are very rare. We are one of the only places in the Northwest to offer this opportunity. 3 Things are special about these courses: 1. You are getting instruction in Iyengar Yoga, the Gold Standard of Yoga Systems. 2. You are learning from Seattle's most experienced yoga teacher, Richard Schachtel. 3. You are in a specially structured course that allows you to learn and to improve. No casual drop-in students are permitted. Only those serious enough to want to be in structured course as this can join.

The Benefits of Intensive Courses

Our FUNDAMENTALS OF PRACTICE (Level 1&2) Progressive IMMERSION Course is specially designed if you:

  • Are brand new to Hatha Yoga in general or to The Iyengar Method in particular
  • Have been studying another form of yoga
  • Have been practicing less than two years
  • Are not practicing on a daily basis and want to learn how daily practices are performed
  • Want to accelerate your progress

Please note that enrollment is strictly limited and many previous beginner Immersion Courses have been filled to capacity, at times with long waiting lists. You may retake the Level One and two Fundamentals Course any number of times.

The Level 2 &3 Immersion Course takes over from where the Level 1&2 Course ends and is designed for students who:

  • Have taken a 4 week immersion
  • Have been practicing Iyengar Hatha Yoga for at least 4 months

The Level 2&3 Immersion Course has a much faster pace than the Level 1&2 Fundamentals Course. Poses are held longer, and are more cardiovascular and strength-oriented. If you take both levels back to back you will get the most from this very powerful combination.

[Richard's] demonstrations were great. He explained everything to detail — that was my favorite part. And he also noticed our own areas where we needed improvement.

I loved [the training]. Very inspiring! Overall, the training ... exceeded my expectations. It was rigorous and required discipline. I liked that.

[What I liked about the Immersion is] the ability to do yoga continuously over a period of 4 weeks and being at a studio solely devoted to Iyengar yoga so that I could take advantage of other classes.

It was a great experience & I would recommend it to anybody who is serious about yoga, but not ready for a two-year commitment. I liked the many hours of yoga practice, and I liked working with the group. It was a very supportive atmosphere, and the quality of the instruction we received was sublime.
