Chris, the principal teacher, at Queanbeyan Yoga Room, holds an Introductory Level 2 Certificate with the BKS Iyengar Association of Australia, and completed his Preliminary Teacher Training with Alan Goode, Yoga Mandir.

Iyengar Yoga

The  Iyengar Yoga method is based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar. The practice of Iyengar Yoga is characterised by precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timing and use of props. Practice builds strength, stamina, balance and flexibility, which bring a sense of freedom and balance. The use of props makes Iyengar Yoga accessible to people of all ages by facilitating alignment and support in practice. With practice, awareness is developed and the mind is trained to focus on the present moment. This allows practitioners to experience quiet and stillness.

The Iyengar Teacher Certification mark (pictured below) is used under licence by certified Iyengar Yoga teachers worldwide. The mark demonstrates a committment of the teacher to maintaining the purity, excellence and high standards of Iyengar Yoga.  Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers complete years of intensive teacher training, undergo a rigorous asessment of their teaching and practice, and undertake continuing education to maintain and upgrade their certification to teach. Only certified Iyengar teachers are entitled to use the name of yoga master BKS Iyengar and his teaching method.



"Asana is a position where the practitioner works, co-ordinates and balances the organs of action, senses of perception, the muscles, ligaments, the tendons, the fibres, the sinews of the body as well as mind, ego, intellect and consciousness in unison, interweaving the gross physical body, the subtle mental body and the causal spritual body."

- BKS Iyengar, Light on Astanga Yoga
