After 8 years of regular practice, Tala Rubiana pursued a life-changing journey of training to become an Iyengar yoga teacher in 2006. She completed her 4-year Introductory level 1 & 2 apprenticeship teacher training program in 2010, under the guidance of Senior teacher Carole Baillargeon from Darwin Yoga Space.
Iyengar Yoga Rasa Studio was founded by Tala in June 2017, after coming back to Cambodia for the third time. Her vision has always been the same:
“To help establish a solid community of regular and more disciplined yoga practitioners and to help me continue my study by continuing to teach different types of bodies and keep on witnessing the steady development of students into becoming a good Iyengar yoga practictioner.”
The power of Iyengar yoga
Iyengar yoga practice has been an enormous help to Tala when it comes to understanding how to practice for her physical imbalance, and it has been a great help understanding students with similar difficulties.
Her continued Iyengar yoga study improves her knowledge, the importance of links in various body parts, body system, joints, and muscles.
Tala is full of enthusiasm in life. She is attentive to her student’s individual needs and goes out of her way to help when student need yoga guidance. Her class are intense, firm and very progressive.
When teaching, she uses daily lives analogies to connect with her students so they can relate to the subject of yoga with less confusion. Regular students find her classes highly effective in easing mind and body tensions.
Iyengar Yoga teachers are amongst the best-qualified yoga teachers you can find! It requires at least 3 years of 2-3 time a week class attendance with Iyengar certified teacher to become an ideal candidate for Teacher training.
It takes four to five years of intense teacher training and a rigorous assessment process to international standards before teachers gain entry-level certification.
