Iyengar yoga is a method based on hatha yoga emphasising precision and alignment with the assistance of props to achieve perfection in all the asanas (poses).
Founded by Yogacharya B.K.S Iyengar (1918 - 2014), the Iyengar teaching method brings awareness to the detail in each asana to create correct alignment throughout the body. This method not only deepens your practice but gives you more direction. Through the use of a few simple props such as blocks, straps, benches and bolsters, students with different capabilities can gradually build strength, confidence and flexibility without the threat of strain or injury.
