Teacher Training with Glenn Ceresoli

“Yoga is not something to be achieved; it is something to be experienced”

Byron Yoga Lounge presents an Iyengar Teacher Training/Yoga Development course with Glenn Ceresoli. Glenn is an International Senior Iyengar Teacher and has been involved in Yoga for 30 years and teaching for 25 years. This course can contribute towards the hours needed to sit for Iyengar Yoga Certification – see details below. It is also suitable for those wishing to deepen their practice and knowledge of yoga and not sit assessments

On the sole discretion of Glenn – students may be eligible to sit the BKSIYAA teacher training Assessment Procedure after attending 200 hours of training with Glenn

Glenn Ceresoli has extensive experience as both a teacher and practitioner of Iyengar yoga.
A Yoga class with Glenn Ceresoli is an opportunity to imbibe his twenty nine years of experience and his relentless commitment and intention to break through the restrictive habits and conditions of the body/mind. Glenn says, “Attitude and approach is the key to everything.”
Glenn’s years of personal experience enable him to facilitate the process of this change through the practice of Yoga using the body and mind to know one’s Self.
Glenn believes that the practice of Yoga utilizes what he refers to as a “Replacement Method” which simply but effectively replaces the unconscious habits of the body/mind complex with very deliberate and consciously implemented actions and behaviors. This allows us freedom from the restrictions which limit the body mind complex and how we experience life.

Yoga cultivates wisdom on all levels. We have all experienced teachers who have inspired us to extend ourselves beyond our boundaries and who have left an imprint on our approach to practicing and teaching yoga. Glenn Ceresoli is such a teacher.

About the Teacher Training/Lifestyle Course

The path of yoga is to know one’s self. It provides the means to systematically explore, observe, enquire and inwardly experience the many facets of our being, physically, physiologically, psychologically and spiritually. The intention of this course is to establish the essential principles of practice in the Iyengar Yoga Method. These principles form the foundation for the ‘practice of yoga’. Invaluable experience is gained through the understanding of how to practice systematically and progressively. It is practice that will provide substance and integrity to imparting experience as a teacher. It is through the practice that the body and mind become sensitive and subtle, enhancing our perception and making it possible to experience our spiritual nature. This course will be intense, challenging and extremely rewarding on all levels, physically, mentally and emotionally. It will provide aspiring teachers the tools, skills an understanding necessary to be sincere practitioner’s and offer current teachers the opportunity to progress and refine their current ability and understanding.

About Iyengar Yoga

    Iyengar Yoga is an intelligent, systematic approach to the practice of yoga that requires the practitioner to deliberately replace unconscious habitual responses with deliberately implemented conscious ones.

Some features unique to Iyengar yoga include-

  • Alignment of the body – taught with technical precision and insightful understanding.
  • Equipment – Known as Yoga Props, used to facilitate the poses (asana). Props allow the practitioner to experience the benefits of an asana even if they cannot do it independently.
  • The sequencing of the asana’s is taught in an order to be effective and safe whilst providing the best possible environment for teaching.

Thanks to Iyengar yoga alignment has been acknowledged as an essential ingredient to the process of practicing yoga world wide!
