Richard is one of the most experienced yoga teacher trainers in the US. He has been giving yoga teacher training courses since 1986 and has influenced many current teachers in the US and abroad. Richard is an approved Yoga Teacher Trainer with Yoga Alliance to give YA-200 Hour teacher trainings.

We are pleased to offer these high quality and low cost teacher trainings. Affordable & High Quality yoga teacher training is important to us. Make sure you enroll in a training by a teacher who has taught for at least 15 years. Although this alone is not a guarantee of quality, it does eliminate a fair amount of trainings given by teachers who have not matured in their approach. It takes time to learn how to work with a wide population of students.

Yoga is for everyone and this is especially true for Iyengar Yoga.

In 2018 we added for the first time a Weekday Daytime Teacher Training Meeting Every Week.The response to this has been tremendous and we are adding New Daytime Courses in Starting in October 2018 and in February 2019

We have recently added an option to take the 4 weeks of training in 6 day modules over a period of 7-16 months. A limited number of students can take the first week of training in either March, May/June, July or September and take the second week of training in the next upcoming immersion training. The third and fourth week will meet in the next 2 immersion trainings. This way those who cannot take off 4 consecutive weeks of work can come to Seattle to be trained and still maintain their job and family responsibilities.

We have also created an option to take the 4 Different 6 Day Modules in a Track of Your Own Choosing. You will still need to take the first week of training first before you can continue with the second week but you can decide in which of the 4 weeks you will be attending each module. See the "Create Your Own 6 Day Module Sequences" below for more information about this option and its pricing.

Our immersion teacher trainings are highly rated by our students. Many Graduates of courses in 2016 & 2017 rate these courses a 9.5 out of 10!

Overall our ratings are very high:

  • 36% of our recent graduates rated the course as a 10 out of 10.
  • 16% rated the course as a 9 of 10.
  • And 18% rated the course as an 8 of 10.

The Center for Yoga of Seattle is a Yoga Alliance Registered School.

Find out why Iyengar Yoga Alignment is the Gold Standard of Yoga Systems.

Experience teacher training from Seattle's most experienced yoga teacher trainer.

Some of the Hallmarks of Iyengar Yoga are:

  • 1. The emphasis on precision of alignment in every pose.
  • 2. The specific and creative use of props that can help to individualize the practice to each student.
  • 3. The important feedback on practice that is given by well-trained competent teachers.
  • 4. Well structured sequences that help the student to progress and to gain awareness.
  • 5. Emphasis on developing the ability to work and stay in the poses in order to gain real benefit as compared to classes which are too fast to experience the full benefit of each pose and do not allow enough time to make adjustments and corrections.
  • 6. The emphasis on practicing a full-range of poses including the highly important inverted poses which are sadly not taught at"gym yoga" classes.

Please sign up early and arrive early for the class!

Richard Schachtel has been training yoga teachers in Seattle since 1986. Over 140 recent graduates are approved by Yoga Alliance. He has taught throughout the US, in India, China, and Australia.

I chose the Center for Yoga and Richard Schachtel for my very first 200 hr yoga teacher certification, and I couldn't be happier with my choice! As a dedicated student of yoga for eight years, my desire for an experienced, wise and senior teacher in an alignment-based practice drove my decision.

Richard is extremely knowledgeable, and he keeps control of his classes so that you are always learning--about every body type, every prop, and you're encouraged to explore what different modifications and props do for you.

I've left this training prepared to begin working with ANY type of body and ANY level of ability, which was my goal.

However, I've also left this training having discovered such an invaluable resource and teacher in Richard that I'm committed to continuing to study with him both to further my own practice and to also continually deepen my understanding of yoga in the Iyengar tradition.

I have chosen to teach yoga to others and share the joy of this self-healing practice, and I'm incredibly grateful to be learning so much from Richard that I can then pass on to my students.

Richard is wise and talent teacher. I am so appreciated when a teacher spends a lot of time discussing alignment and the reason behind why we do certain sequence of poses. I enjoyed paying attention to his teaching style during the teacher training course.

The Center for Yoga Seattle as an Iyengar studio has the best alignment principles and is very good at making sure you can recognize if a person is doing a pose correctly and how to adequately use props to assist in their yoga experience.

The Center for Yoga of Seattle's 1 Year Weekend teacher training program covers considerable breadth of material without sacrificing depth. Of particular note is that this program gives you tools with which to work with individuals of greatly varying physical ability. A very enjoyable experience.


The Center for Yoga of Seattle has a special passion for helping students reach their full potential, safely, and understanding the "why" of everything we did.

Iyengar's approach to yoga meets everyone at their level of practice. This training gave me the confidence to offer adjustments in any pose, by bringing the body into alignment which minimizes the potential for injuries.

The comradery of the students was excellent. No competition was felt, rather each student supported and helped others daily. The primary instructor was generally kind and sympathetic towards students yet maintained the structure and pace of the intensive training. Sufficient rest was given and encouraged ...Read More
