This trademark has been legally registered in Canada to protect the high standards of Iyengar yoga. All Iyengar yoga teachers certified from Introductory II onward must hold a Certification Mark license in order to teach Iyengar yoga in Canada and maintain good standing as a Teaching Member of the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada/Association canadienne de yoga Iyengar. The Certification Mark indicates that a teacher is properly trained and certified in Iyengar yoga, has committed to teach only Iyengar yoga, and will not mix other methods of yoga.
The Certification Mark must be purchased together with the Certified Teacher Membership. Payment of this fee along with the Certified Teacher Membership permits the use of this Mark as a display logo for promotional and identification purposes.
