Apprenticeship Program

The Center is now seeking highly motivated students to join our Apprenticeship Program.

The Center For Yoga of Seattle's Apprenticeship Program has been designed to train the next generation of yoga teachers in the great tradition of Yogacharya B. K. S. Iyengar. We accept a limited number of dedicated students who are committed to becoming competent yoga teachers, as apprentices.

Our Apprenticeships involve learning:

  • How to assist in regular classes
  • The progression in teaching beginners and how to develop a yoga course
  • How to individualize the practice and teaching of yoga to various individuals
  • The seven-step method of teaching Iyengar Yoga
  • How to develop good demonstration, instruction, observation, and correction skills.
