Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of the yoga master BKS Iyengar, author of many books including the classic yoga treatise Light on Yoga.
Iyengar Yoga, one of the world’s most widely-practiced forms, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose.
This precision builds strength and stamina, balance and flexibility, and a new sense of well-being.
Achieving meditation in action, students learn to exist fully and vibrantly in the present moment.
Certified Iyengar Yoga instructors are held to an unusually rigorous standard. Only after years of training and evaluation do they become certified.
A Certified Iyengar Yoga instructor can guide students of all ages and physical conditions to a yoga experience that’s safe, intelligent and transformative.
Iyengar Yoga is for everyone. No one is too old or too stiff, too fat or thin or tired.
BKS Iyengar’s invention of yoga props—now ubiquitous in yoga studios of all styles—revolutionized the art. Iyengar Yoga instructors modify yoga postures to the needs of specific students using blocks, blankets, belts and other props. These props allow for a deeper penetration into the postures, as well as a longer stay and a more profound experience.
