About Iyengar Yoga

Yoga is an ancient system of exercises and philosophy originally developed in India. This form of yoga is named after Mr BKS Iyengar who has been teaching and demonstrating throughout the world for over seventy years. He has several million students and has written many books on yogic practice and its philosophy.

Iyengar yoga is based on the safe and precise practice of alignment of the body in the postures. Yoga means to join together, to unite. Often the different parts of ourselves are disconnected from each other. In yoga we apply awareness to our body and our breath and so we begin to feel more connected, more whole. It is this active awareness that distinguishes yoga from other forms of exercise, and makes it appropriate for all ages and body types.

Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
