Requirements for admittance:
One has to be well motivated and possess enough relevant yoga experience; preferably according to the Iyengar yoga method. Training consists of active yoga lessons that demand great dedication from the student. In an introductory conversation and a yoga-lesson, it will be assessed whether the future student is ‘ripe’ to participate in the training. The training-staff reserves the right to reject candidates, without disclosing the reasons. Appointments for an introductory conversation can be made with Delilah King via


Non-credit students:
If you are interested in deepening your understanding of yoga and/or want to enrich your teaching it is possible to enroll as a non-credit student. In this case, you are not eligible for a teaching certification. Non-credit students should have a consistent practice, should know the Sanskrit names of the asana and be able to practice Sirsasana and Salamba Sarvangasana for 3-5 minutes. The recommended reading materials are the same for the accredited course. Students will receive a letter of completion at the end of the course.
Non-credit participation will be recognized if you choose to join the Iyengar Teacher Training program at a later date.

Weekends are available on a drop-in basis.

“The Iyengar Yoga Institute in Amsterdam is a fantastic place to study Iyengar Yoga. From the first day I came here I felt there was so much professionalism being offered in this place in the subject of Yoga. If you study here you will be in very good and experienced hands. I started the teacher training in 2012 and I recently finished this three year program. It is hard to describe what it has given me as words would never be sufficient to capture it completely but it it certainly has transformed me in a very positive way physically and mentally. The training has been very challenging and it still is but on the way I learned to appreciate challenge as it means that you are exploring your boundaries and it is an opportunity for personal growth, the greatest present in life. Delilah and Rembert (the two teacher training teachers) will guide you on this path and will make sure that you will get the right amount of challenge at the right time, so it will not be too big to handle nor too small to get bored. Thank you very much Delilah and Rembert for a great three years and I am looking forward to continue to study with you for many years to come!”
