Certification Process

Candidates for assessment to become a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT™) or to earn a more advanced certificate must apply to be assessed in the country where they live. IYNAUS oversees annual assessments for U.S. candidates at host studio venues throughout the country. IYNAUS is exceedingly grateful to the assessors and studio owners who volunteer their time and use of their studios; without their generosity assessments would not be possible.

Level 1 assessments are being planned for 2021.  Level 2 and Level 3 assessments will first be offered in 2022. However, due to the pandemic, assessment scheduling is uncertain and assessments are not guaranteed to occur as scheduled.
