The Iyengar System of Yoga
regular practice of Iyengar yoga leads to optimal physical and mental
health. It is named for B.K.S. Iyengar, of Pune, India, who developed,
refined and shared this methodology.
It uses a precise, systematic approach whereby students
learn a series of yoga postures in a well- planned order, and synchronize
these postures with their breathing. These yoga postures help to
exercise, strengthen, balance and cleanse every system of the body:
musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous and
respiratory. Students concentrate intently, drawing their attention
inward. This concentration quiets and integrates their minds and
Iyengar yoga is versatile. It can be adapted to suit all ages and
levels of fitness. Many students use it to maintain and enhance
their existing health. Others seek it to help them manage and improve
chronic or acute conditions, especially in therapeutic classes and
it means when we say "Namaste"
