Iyengar Yoga
Iyengar Yoga is a method of Hatha Yoga developed over the past 65 years by yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar. Recently named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the West, Mr. Iyengar is largely responsible for popularizing yoga in the West. His innovative approach emphasizes postural alignment, the use of props (blankets, blocks, straps) to facilitate learning and therapeutic sequences for specific conditions. The Iyengar methodology involves precise use of language, demonstration, and observation – teaching specific points of action in an asana (posture), individual correction and adjustment of the students. A safe and systematic progession of asanas within a class and from class to class helps students develop proficiency and confidence. Iyengar Yoga emphasizes the standing postures to develop strength, flexiblity, concentration and body alignment. It is suitable for students of every age and fitness level. Iyengar Yoga teachers undergo years of rigorous training in asana (posture), pranayama (yogic breathing), philosophy and anatomy in preparation for a national certification exam. The Certification Mark can only be used by certified Iyengar teachers. For more information visit the official website of Iyengar Yoga’s National Assocoation at www.iynaus.org.
