What is Iyengar Yoga?

Iyengar®Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that is grounded in the teachings of the yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, whose approach to yoga was firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga expounded by the sage Patanjali in his classic treatise, The Yoga Sutras, written over 2,500 years ago. Mr Iyengar spent 75 years researching and developing this style, while teaching millions and practicing daily until his death at age 96.

The Iyengar style emphasizes detail, precision and alignment in the development of the posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). During an Iyengar practice the posture may be held for longer periods and also props may be utilized for training, understanding, development and during Restorative sequencing. Once the practitioner has a mature and intelligent practice Vinyasa sequences are also used.

Iyengar Yoga is used also for therapy and healing chronic and degenerative ailments. As such, this yoga style was developed for all body types, ages, and abilities: young, old, fat, thin, stiff, tired… Through the regular practice of Iyengar Yoga with a qualified and certified instructor, the development of strength, mobility and stability is achieved in not only the body, but also the mind and the spirit.

Why Iyengar Yoga?

Bearers of the Iyengar®Yoga certification must commit to regular participation in intensive workshops, retreats, and internships with senior Iyengar®Yoga instructors to meet and maintain the spiritual and technical demands of the art. This Gold Standard, unmatched by any other yoga organization worldwide, assures quality teaching and safety for the student.

BKS Iyengar is often credited with bringing yoga to the Western Hemisphere. He created a teaching methodology that his students could easily understand, experience, assimilate and integrate into their daily lives. Iyengar®Yoga is accessible to all ages, body types and abilities.

“Yoga is about the will, working with intelligence and self-reflexive Consciousness. It can free us from the inevitability of the wavering mind and outwardly directed senses.” 
– BKS Iyengar, Light on Life
