Within the traditional Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri K Pattabhi
Jois there is a system of authorization and certification of
teachers. This accreditations of teachers in Ashtanga Yoga can only
be given by KPJYAI in Mysore. In order to recieve authorization to
teach one should have been dedicated to ones practice for many
years. One should have repeatedly studied with Guruji and/or
Sharath and reached a level in ones practice where they think it is
appropriate to start teaching.
To maintain ones authorization it is necessary to continue to go
to Mysore to deepen your practice regularly. Today there is
approximately one hundred fifty authorized teachers in the world
and thirty assigned to the higher level of certification.
