I wanted to post these two sites for Yoga Forum members who are looking to complete Yoga trainings and for those who are looking for Yoga teachers and Yoga therapists to work with. I am not aware of a larger collection of Yoga practitioners than at these two sites. If someone has other directory type resources, please share them here too.

International Association of Yoga Therapists: www.iayt.org/

Yoga Alliance: yogaalliance.com/

Namaste

Neither link provides teachers in my region (Middle and East Europe).

Either people here are not interested to register, or simply yoga is just not yet part of societies here.

Hubert,

I think this is your chance. Could you create something to fill that need?

There must be other passionate people who would assist you.

I did check Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary.

I am from a small romanian province. In Romania, there is/was an organization, called The Movement of Integration into the Absolute (MISA, romanian acronym) where I had the first year of class. (hatha yoga) This was in 1991-92; that was not too far from the so called '89 "revolution", when we became again a democratic republic.

There was a scandal in the media regarding MISA's leader, Gregorian Bivolaru: www.gregorianbivolaru.com/ , so he had to flee the country.

Anyway, I am far from being able to start anything, I am not a extroverted person, I just want to practice. This is already a huge challenge. Thanks to the internet, I found these forums, and I am optimistic ... and I am planning to visit yoga teachers abroad, once I feel ready.

PS. My interest in yoga was just recently re-awakened, so there might be independent teachers and schools in the bigger cities I am not aware of.

Hubert: I was in Sofia and Plovdiv, Bulgaria in late 2005 and there were posters in both cities advertising an Iyengar center. I don't speak Bulgarian or read the Cyrillic alphabet, so I am sorry that I can't offer your more info. I did take a picture of the poster (it was cool!) and could post it here if that would be helpful to you.

Namaste

Unfortunately, I don't speak (read) bulgarian.

But if there are such schools I'll find them. I'll check Budapest. Hungarian is not an issue.
