An Iyengar Yoga teacher must complete rigorous training to become fully qualified. The Iyengar Yoga method is recognised and respected as one of the most deeply faceted forms as it holds a practical, philosophical and spiritual value for all. An Iyengar Yoga teaching certificate is valid worldwide.

Only Certified Iyengar Teachers are entitled to use the name of yoga master BKS Iyengar and his teaching method. Each Certified Teacher is committed to upholding the excellence and purity of Iyengar Yoga, one of the words most widely practiced yogas.


Yoga teacher training can be an intense process. It is vital that you & your training teacher have a solid relationship and open communication.

Based on certain criteria, I accept local trainees (I live in Melbourne, Australia), and I also mentor trainees who live in different locations that I visit.

Direct contact & class attendance is an important part of the ongoing training. This is offered on a weekly basis through live online group yoga sessions. Individual contact is scheduled monthly via Zoom.
Direct ‘in studio’ contact is also available periodically when Sue is in your location.
I am open to discussing your options and a possible way forward. Thank you.

Sue Everett is a registered teacher trainer with Iyengar Yoga Australia – IYA


A student wishing to train as a yoga teacher must have been practising Iyengar Yoga regularly for a minimum of three years before undertaking training with a IYA accredited teacher.

An interview with Sue is required to assess readiness to embark on the training.


The yoga teacher training time commitment is between two and three years, there is no fixed commencement date as I accept eligible students into the program at any time.
