IYENGAR® Yoga

Yoga, a thousand-year old science, is
an efficient response to the problems of our time
 

We teach Iyengar yoga which is based on the study of asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques). Both traditional and modern Iyengar yoga is accessible to all, irrespective of age or physical condition.

 

This method emphasises alignment of the body, precision, intensity of movement and duration of the āsanas.

 

B.K.S. Iyengar also developed the use of props (belts, bricks, blankets etc) in order to enable heightened understanding of the postures and to make it possible for practitioners to carry out the postures even if the body is not yet ready (for example in terms of strength and/or flexibility).

 

The Iyengar method is progressive and structured.

The practitioner progresses gradually, with full confidence that he/she will not become injured. The practitioner will develop both strength and flexibility, but also enhanced self-awareness and concentration.

 

Classes end with deep relaxation which results in finishing the practice feeling refreshed.

The practitioner leaves the class with a sense of having exercised his/her body, but also of feeling less tired and recharged.

Week by week, the positive effects of the practice can be felt more strongly, bringing both increased energy and a sense of serenity each day, as well as enabling practitioners to be better able to deal with life’s challenges.

B.K.S. Iyengar

Yogacharia B.K.S. Iyengar was born on 14 December 1918 in Bellur (Karnataka-India) and passed away on 20 August 2014 in Pune (Maharastra-India).

 

He discovered yoga through his master and brother-in-law Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya with whom he studied in Mysore.

In 1966, B.K.S. Iyengar published Yoga Dipika, Light on Yoga. This book is a reference book, sometimes referred to as the ‘bible of yoga’, and has been translated into, at least, 19 languages.

May the light he showed us continue to help us through our journey of yoga..!
