The Institute encourages progressive attendance through the syllabus of the Institute. Students with extensive experience of Iyengar Yoga may, with negotiation, join the the Institute in the Foundation practitioner program. However these students are encouraged to attend, in the same term, the entry level program: Introduction to Iyengar Yoga Methodology. The Institute is unique in the delivery of syllabus via the devolution of Yoga philsophy and science into subject areas that consider grades of practices and levels of integration (as outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras and futher examined and detailed by BKS Iyengar in Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali). Students are strongly advised to remain in each practitioner program level for the recommended number of terms. However the Institute does recognise that development is dependent upon practice experience and negotiation with a teacher may support movement into the next level in less than the recommended number of terms.
