Iyengar Yoga

B.K.S. Iyengar began his study in India under the tutalage of his brother-in-law T. Krishnamacharia at a very young age. As his practice developed and he grew into a young man he devised a method of working with various props that allowed even the stiff, weak and infirmed to achieve the benefits of yoga practice. He continues with his own practice today while his daughter Geeta and son Prashant carry on the tradition of teaching at their Institute in Pune, India.

A key element to the Iyengar system is exploring the precise alignment of one's structure (bones) while doing any given pose. Then learning to strengthen one's musculature to maintain and deepen one's understanding of the pose and its benefits. The use of various props allows students of any capability the opportunity to find this connection of muscle to bone that develops unity, harmony and balance.
