IYENGAR YOGA

Iyengar Yoga is named after B.K.S Iyengar (1918-2014) who promoted yoga as a practice for all and who has been credited with disseminating yoga to the west.     B.K.S Iyengar was a yoga practitioner, teacher, researcher, author, and philanthropist; a man respected the world over as evidenced by the many awards he received (e.g. honoured by Time Magazine in 2004 as one of the most influential people in the world).  He was a prolific author, whose book, Light on Yoga, a seminal and enduring text on the art of yoga is an international best-seller and has been translated into 23 languages.

 

Throughout the years of his practice and teaching B.K.S. Iyengar created a unique approach to yoga which enabled even the most compromised students to sustain a yoga practice.  This approach focuses on -

 

  • Precision in alignment

  • Use of props to help increase awareness and access poses with integrity of alignment and stability

  • Balances stability and mobility to create strength

  • Careful attention placed on the specific sequencing of poses

  • Ongoing and precise feedback on the students’ practise

  • Mindfully re-patterns the body into healthy alignment
