Iyengar Yoga is the most practiced yoga worldwide and it is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life. Iyengar is for everyone; the young and old, fit and unfit and those with health-related conditions.
Developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, it is based on Patanjali’s eight-limbed yoga (Astanga yoga) and aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well-being. Great attention is paid to precision and alignment through the planned sequencing of Asanas (postures) and breath control (Pranayama).
Iyengar Yoga often makes use of props which enable students to perform Asanas correctly and at their own ability. Props minimise the risk of injury or strain, and make postures accessible to everyone irrespective of mobility, flexibility or conditions.
