Teacher Development Intensives
for Teachers and Experienced Practitioners

                           with Peter Thomson                            

Peter is a senior teacher in the Iyengar tradition


These intensives are aimed specifically at the needs of teachers, teachers-in-training and very experienced and committed students. They are not suitable for new or recent students to yoga or to the Iyengar method. The general workshops are there for that purpose. As a guide all students are expected to be engaged in their own practice and should be accomplished in sirsasana and sarvangasana.

Peter's particular approach is process or practice-based rather and aims at understanding rather than simply knowledge. It is built off the establishment of clear perceptual foundations that support on-going yoga development. This approach demands and relies on continuity and consistency of attendance and process. All participants in these intensives are therefore required to attend all 4 sessions for the year unless otherwise expressly negotiated with Peter.

About Peter Thomson
Peter has been practicing yoga since 1979 and a student of the Iyengar family since 1981. He has traveled to Pune to study at the Iyengar Institute well over 20 times and has been a participant in most special intensives and courses at the Institute over the years, including notably the backbend intensive with Mr. Iyengar in 1991.

Peter is one of Australia's most senior and most experienced teachers and practitioners and has been heavily involved in the development of Iyengar yoga both in Australasian and more recently in South-East Asian region. This is so in terms of basic teaching but also in terms of teaching training and certification processes.

Peter’s particular interest in the practice and teaching of yoga is the depth of perception, inquiry and understanding that sustained practice can develop and in making that understanding directly accessible to students so they can claim it as their own in their practice and in their lives.
