What is Iyengar Yoga?
Developed by BKS Iyengar, one of two visionary teachers credited with bringing the practice of yoga to the West; Iyengar yoga focuses on precise body alignment in order to awaken the body’s innate intelligence. Each pose is thoroughly explored and explained, and props such as blocks, blankets and belts are often used to meet the individual needs of the student as he or she moves deeper into the pose.
