The Iyengar Yoga Association of the United States has happily informed me that I have passed the Introductory I assessment.
Barbara Boris is a student of Yoga Asana, Indian Philosophy and Sanskrit for twenty four years, a teacher for over fifteen years. She has traveled annually to India for the last fifteen years for continued spiritual study; to lead yoga retreats in Rishikesh; and to Pune, India (February 2011 makes her sixth trip there) for extended training with the BKS Iyengar family.

In accordance with his lifetime contribution to the art, science and philosophy of yoga, B. K. S. Iyengar has pursued trademark protection so that yoga associated with his name reflects his work. On August 14 2007, the name “IYENGAR” associated with “YOGA” was registered as a trademark and is protected in the United States.Only Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers are permitted to use “Iyengar Yoga” to describe their yoga programs. Teachers who have passed the first level of assessment may identify themselves as Teachers in Training in the Iyengar method. <<BB NOTE: This is my Status now as of Sept 19, 2010.>>
Non-certified teachers may not use the term “Iyengar Yoga”, or any related terms such as “Iyengar-style” or “Iyengar-influenced”, in any form of business advertising or for any program for financial gain. They may only indicate that they have taken classes with an Iyengar Yoga teacher; in teaching they may acknowledge that a certain way of teaching comes from the Iyengar method.
The Iyengar Yoga community welcomes these teachers to participate in our Certification process. That way, they too can earn the right and responsibility to say that they teach Iyengar Yoga.
