About Iyengar Yoga
B.K.S. Iyengar of Pune, India developed this system of yoga over 60 years ago.
Iyengar Yoga develops self-awareness through precision in movement appropriate for each individual’s physical condition. This profound practice brings strength and suppleness to body, mind, and spirit. Iyengar, widely acknowledged as the world’s foremost modern yoga teacher, caringly passed this tradition on to his Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers.
He continued to teach, refine and improve the method until his transition in August, 2014 at age 95.
Of his many writings, Light on Yoga is considered one of the defining texts on the subject. Iyengar yoga is taught on 6 continents and throughout the United States.
Iyengar Yoga is known for its emphasis on body alignment that helps to build strength, flexibility, balance and a sense of calm, clarity, and well being. The use of props, such as blocks, belts, and blankets, helps to make this yoga accessible to everyone.
Through emphasizing the physical postures, as students progress in their practice, awareness of the body deepens. This creates evenness and calm that allows you to use yoga to connect more deeply with a chosen spiritual path.
The Iyengar Yoga Certification Mark is a sign that the instructor has been rigorously trained and passed a series of tests to ensure the finest quality instruction. We are proud to display this mark.
