Congratulations to IYH Teacher Training graduates

Some of the graduates of the IYH Teacher Training Course have recently been candidates at assessments conducted by the Iyengar Yoga National Association of US (IYNAUS) for the Introductory level of teaching.
These assessments are conducted over 2-3 days and evaluate the candidates’ knowledge of the theory and philosophy of Yoga as well as the practice and teaching of the subject.
Candidates who successfully pass receive Certification as Iyengar teachers (CIYT).
We wish to congratulate Akemi, Reagan, Grushenka, Rose. Also congratulations Valerie and Supin who are two of our substitute teachers who are no strangers to students at IYH.

Valerie often teaches classes when Ray or Shelley are travelling.



Supin has been teaching a free class on Fridays and also substitute teaches for us.



  1. Heartfelt congratulations to our newly-minted Iyengar yoga teachers in Honolulu and on the Big Island!! It’s been a long, labor-intensive AND remarkable journey these last almost-three years. It’s taken much sacrifice on your parts, but the learning process is without a doubt extremely important and valuable. Each of you has much to offer your communities. Go forward with confidence. May the involution and evolution continue in us all!
    Love from Shelley
