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.

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.

Comments From Students who have taken our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Iyengar yoga tradition. This program is worth going to if you value detailed actions and communication from your instructors to get a deeper understanding of asana. Iyengar is alignment based and focuses on the foundation of the asana. In the Iyengar tradition you will also be introduced to the use of props to modify or deepen your asana. You will be instructed in the proper use of props as well. B.K.S. Iyengar pioneered this approach to make yoga for everyone. You will be teaching many different body types the knowledge is 2nd to none. After many many hours of practice the mind body awareness grows more aligned. Great intro. 200hr course!

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.


Oct 01, 2015


This school and my teacher hold a sacred place in my heart. I'm extremely thankful for the entire experience and the amount of knowledge I attained while in the school. This is my foundation and my roots to the beautiful path laid before me. Thank you, thank you for being such a special part of my journey! Namaste


Jul 21, 2014


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.


Sep 17, 2014


I had a great time during the summer intensive. Learned a lot of fine tuning skills and great methods to teach. I would highly recommend this program.


Aug 06, 2015


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.


Aug 26, 2014


I appreciate the time spent on correct alignment and learning how to do the poses safely. Good intro to the depth and scope of yoga and instilled in me a desire to continue my studies.


Oct 17, 2014


The month long course was hard, but to feel the accomplishment at the end of the training was worth it, I really enjoyed this training. I learned so much and had met some really great teachers. Our instructor knew his material and presented it in the short month I was enrolled. He has a lot of experience and is willing to teach it to anyone who is willing to learn.


October 19. 2015


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.


April 2, 2014


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 to maintain personal health during the program. I would recommend a longer course rather than so much to absorb in a short intensive training. However, the use of time was excellent.


January 8, 2014


200hr Yoga teacher program was the best experience in this year. I met brave, strong and amazing peers and teachers through this program. I'll never forget this experience. I'll go on my yoga practice to the last breath.


June 24, 2014



[My impression of this trainig was] excellent! It deepened my own practice in addition to enlightening the fundamentals of teaching. while not ready for teaching from this course alone, I now have the skills and knowledge to prepare on my own. [What I liked most about the training was] the practice teaching. That was the most beneficial aspect.


Kennewick, Washington


I was challenged and informed. [The training] was well thought out and enjoyable—just what I was looking for. [I liked] having the opportunity to concentrate on yoga for five days with like-minded people and being exposed to other teachers and different levels of classes. I learned and ... grew from the experience. I will take valuable usable information and skills home with me.


Boise, Idaho


The training was excellent. The material was covered in-depth and presented with precision and clarity. The insights that Richard shared along the way were in valuable. His experience and expertise are shared in a very natural way through his teaching.

I really liked how Richard emphasized correctness while creating an environment that fostered confidence and exploration. Richard was very generous with his knowledge but careful not to overload trainees with too much at one time.


Lebanon, Oregon


You could see that Richard worked very hard to make his classes run smoothly with structure and enjoyed teaching. He flooded our minds with wonderful information that you can actually use out in the real yoga wold. Richard's techings were easy to follow and to the point. And it seems everyone felt very safe asking all kinds of questions. Overall, it was a workthwhile ezperience and I wish I had come sooner!


Seattle


The Training was first class. I liked taking each subject/pose scientifically... I gained a lot more knowledge and depth of the poses. It will be a great asset to my students and my self. This Intensive further broadened my knowledge of how to present a better class and make yoga invigorating and fun. I'll be looking forward to the next Intensive.


Dillingham, Alaska



The detail and thoroughness with which poses were explored was highly useful. The Training assisted in learning how to read bodies, perform adjustments/variations and to empower my students.


Saskatchewan, Canada


The information presented was well-rounded in that it engaged all the different learning styles; visual, kinesthetic and auditory. Not only was there a wealth of information presented that is useful, I also found the opportunity to observe Richard enlightening — the mastery of his instrument, his mindful presence and teaching style that come to be even more valuable in helping me understand how to teach.


Logan, Utah


I thought the program was a well-balanced mix of watching, talking and doing. It was helpful for me to observe you do the poses, talk us through them, and then to have us do them. But it was especially helpful to observe other people in various stages of mastering the poses. I liked the parts of the classes where we discussed using props and modifying poses so that every student can have a feeling of 'doing the pose.' Overall I thought the training dynamic, positive and supportive.


Norman, Oklahoma


The Training was very worthwhile, giving the aspiring teacher confidence, verbal skills, and helping to sharpen their eye to proper alignment in the asanas and ways the asanas can be taught and modified... I especially appreciated the openness and approachability of the instructor and his effort to get the students to think.


Cataldo, Idaho


The Teacher Training Intensive was just what I needed. Richard did a wonderful job of stretching both my body and mind. He forced me to look at self-imposed limitations and challenged me to perfect each posture in the systematic Iyengar style. I appreciated Richard's experience and ability in looking at the class both collectively and individually, then going with the flow as each asana was introduced and worked on.


Custer, South Dakota


I was very impressed with the Training. I liked the way the poses were broken down to basics, with emphasis on how to adjust the beginning student, how to actually do the physical adjustments, and how to utilize props. I liked the fact that the course covered a little of everything — anatomy, asanas, props, certification, invocation, liability insurance, partner work issues, qualities of a good yoga teacher, working with challenging students, 'yoga manners' and rules to give to students, how to prepare an intro course, etc. I liked the half-day of partner work, where we had an opportunity to verbally practice teaching a couple of asanas. Richard, you are very personable and professional. You have a real sense of mindfulness about you — very focused, nothing wasted in your presentation. I enjoyed your Training very much. The whole group was great and I love Seattle. I'm starting a six-week intro course next week.


Minneapolis, Minnesota


A fantastic course that was very rewarding emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I felt great after the course was over. The week with Richard deepened my appreciation for my own practice of yoga. The intense focus of all of the components of the poses examined was enlightening. I learned how important it is to focus on proper form and the flow of energy that is inherent in each pose.


Bellingham, Washington


Well conceived, clearly stated objectives, purposefully directed, thoughtfully presented and supported with lucid explanations. Richard's approach demonstrated an inspiring respect for his subject, his students and himself. As well, he was able to balance the seriousness of the occasion's intent with a relaxed and friendly openness. Very comfortable and beneficial. I liked the detail combined with depth and scope; had the overall feel of completeness as does well-scripted, -staged and -performed theatre.


Portland, Oregon


Excellent. From a teaching perspective I learned many ways to assist my clients express their greatest potential in the asanas. As a student I am deeply grateful for moving deeper in my own practice. One adjustment Richard gave me relieved tension I'd been feeling in my hip for a great while.


Wichita, Kansas


The Training was very comprehensive. I felt the vital information on helping raw beginners was very thorough. The methods of teaching a beginning posture surprised me. I had no idea working with props could be so beneficial. I thought the Training would be massively difficult, especially with the different levels attending. However, Richard addressed each and every one of our concerns without exclusions. I felt that working with the others was a very important interaction.


Olympia, Washington


Richard is very mentally organized; he would break each pose down, step by step. He was very forthcoming with information, hiding no aspect of his knowledge — hard-won, learned through experience.


Marietta, Georgia


I highly recommend the training. Richard's understanding and teaching of Iyengar Style Hatha Yoga was excellent. The course was presented in a detailed, clear and informative fashion. The atmosphere was very pleasant. I liked Richard's detailed analysis of each pose presented in the course. It proved helpful to understand the importance of detail, to grow not only in my personal practice, but also in becoming a competent yoga teacher.


RN
Polson, Montana


I found the Teacher Training course to be comprehensive, informative, and very valuable to my yoga career. I enjoyed the amount of time we spent on looking at how different people do the poses and the various problems there were with each student.


Naples, Florida


The Course II Teacher Training was very comprehensive and interesting. It fulfilled my expectations and was the perfect complement to the first Teacher Training I took last year. All of the major asanas were explained and demonstrated in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and you made sure that everyone understood what was being taught. I have to admit that what impressed me the most, as it did last year, is the extensive use of so many props. I think that I am a better teacher now because I have refined my teaching by holding the asanas longer and paying more attention to the details. I have more confidence in my teaching skills because my students tell me I get better and better.
