Mentor program

Place for advanced Iyengar yoga practitioners in the Mentor program at Yogaschool Amsterdam

Yoga school Amsterdam has room for the advanced Iyengar yoga practitioner. The Level 2 lessons are very suitable and not to forget the space we offer for self-practice, nowadays on Thursday morning. Craving for more? Read further!

Nine Sundays in the 2021-2022 school year there are Level 3 classes in the morning from 10am to 1pm and Teaching training in the afternoon from 2pm to 5pm.

Are you only interested in the long morning classes? You can drop in one of the classes (€30) or buy a card for all nine classes (check the dates below, €250). Never done this before? Read further and ask Kristien if this is the right lesson for you.

10:00 – 13:00 Level 3 (can be booked as a separate class)

14:00 – 17:00 Teaching training 

Level 3 class

For whom:

Level 3 class is for advanced Iyengar yoga practitioners to meet and become inspired and gain a greater understanding of Asana and Pranayama.

Can I join? 

You can already join if you have attended regular Iyengar yoga classes for at least three years and are able to practice independently.

Learning process:

In Yogaschool Amsterdam we create an atmosphere where everyone can learn from and with each other. We like cross-pollination, which is why we don’t distinguish between people who have practised Iyengar yoga for a long time, who are trained as teachers or who are already certified.


We work with the Introductory and Intermediate Junior syllabi (find them on page 35 to 39 here) with sometimes a trip to even more advanced syllabi. The theory (Anatomy and Philosophy) is also put into practice in this lesson (the theory of teaching is discussed in the afternoon session).

The learning process:

Are you a Level 1 certified Iyengar yoga teacher or are you interested in becoming a Level 1 or – 2 teacher under Kristien’s wings? Then add the Teaching training in the afternoon (in a small group) to the Level 3 class.

For whom:

Teaching training in the afternoon means people who are preparing for the Level 1 or – 2 exam teach each other under Kristien’s guidance (Kristien has been a Level 3 teacher since 2012).

The learning process:

The basis of teaching lies in understanding your own practice. This is always referred to when we study the steps from basic to complex through the syllabi. We’re talking about making series and how to present yourself as a teacher and how you use the space and the props well. 

And More:

You also learn to work with common injuries or illnesses. Learning, studying and talking about philosophical texts puts you personally on a firm footing. If you are a teacher, you know the philosophy of yoga and it shows in the way you behave.

The Mentor program takes three years in which you prepare for the exam with which you become a Level 1 Certified Iyengar yoga teacher.

The first year of your studies, you observe and participate as a trial student in the lessons of the more experienced teachers (to be).

During the second year of the study, you will teach your fellow students in the basic postures.

Is it your third year in training or are you already an Iyengar yoga teacher? Here’s time to practice and hone your skills with the Intermediate Junior syllabi. There is room to discuss difficulties that arise in your teaching practice in group.
