Our Teachers

Unity Woods prides itself on offering the highest quality of yoga instruction. Our teachers collectively have more years of training and more teaching experience than the staff of any other studio in the Washington metropolitan area. Although legally almost anyone can hang out a shingle as a yoga teacher (sometimes after only hours or days of teacher training) we believe that yoga is a discipline that rewards deep study and rigorous teaching standards.

Here at Unity Woods, most of our teachers are certified through the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the U.S. (IYNAUS).

Becoming a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) requires a minimum of five years of dedicated practice, training and experience. This rigorous preparation for the national certification exams (two days of Assessment on practice, teaching and philosophy) produces highly qualified and knowledgeable yoga teachers.

Unity Woods is proud of our expert and inspiring faculty.
