Place for advanced Iyengar yoga practitioners in the Mentor program at Yogaschool Amsterdam
Yogaschool Amsterdam has room for the advanced Iyengar yoga practitioner. The Level 2 and 3 lessons are very suitable and not to forget the space we offer for self-practice. Craving for more? Read further!
Nine Sundays and one (Pentecost) Monday in the 2022-2023 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 Level 3 classes? You can drop in one of the classes (check the dates below). Never done this before? Read further and ask Kristien if this is the right lesson for you.
Level 3 class
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.
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? Then join also the Teaching training in the afternoon (in a small group) to the Level 3 class.
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 sequences, how to present yourself as a teacher and how you use the space and the props well.
You also learn to work with common injuries or illnesses. Learning, studying and talking about philosophical texts puts you personally on a firm footing.
You can become a Level 1 Certified Iyengar yoga teacher after three years of Mentor program and by passing the Level 1 teachers exam, organized by the Dutch Iyengar Yoga Association.
In addition to the monthly Sundays, you also follow at least two weekday classes. In one of these lessons you will observe and assist and gradually teach yourself. To gain more experience, the Advanced Course in Utrecht and/or in Ede, where Kristien also teaches, is a must.
