Although 800-hour certification (completion of the Jivamukti Teacher Apprenticeship Program) is not required to appear before the Review Board, it is strongly recommended. In addition, it is highly recommended that candidates accumulate at least 2 years of teaching experience and 4 years of asana practice experience before appearing before the Review Board. The Board Exam is carried out at Jivamukti Yoga® centers worldwide on an as-needed basis. The Exam covers teaching skills, asana practice skills, yoga philosophy and terms, Sanskrit language, anatomy, and other relevant topics through practical, interview and written components.
