What is Iyengar Yoga?

“Regular practice of yoga can help you face the turmoil of life with steadiness and stability.”  

-B.K.S. Iyengar


Iyengar Yoga, one of the world’s most widely practiced forms, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose.  The precision of this method 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. Students of all fitness levels and from all walks of life can benefit.


This method was developed through the life-long practice of Master BKS Iyengar, called the “Michelangelo of Yoga” who continued to explore his yoga practice until his passing in 2014 at the age of 96.  His invention of yoga props revolutionized the art.  Certified Iyengar Yoga instructors are highly skilled in modifying yoga postures when needed using blocks, blankets, belts, ropes and other props.  These props allow for a deeper penetration into the postures, as well as a longer stay and a more profound experience.  To learn more about B.K.S.
