Iyengar Yoga was named after yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, who developed the method. Iyengar was the first to introduce props such as blocks, straps and bolsters, to ensure students reach and understand each posture with correct alignment and benefit fully and more deeply from the exercise.
Iyengar Yoga emphasizes the physical alignment, the symmetry, the precision and the duration of each posture. As any other yoga style, it affects positively physical, emotional and mental well-being.
Iyengar Yoga is particularly recommended to who has postural issues. This type of Hatha Yoga is in fact well known for having healing effect.
The positive effects of practicing this style, are immediately obvious. With constant practice joints stabilize, muscles gain strength and extension, the spinal column finds the correct alignment and the health of the vascular system improves. Even the internal organs will benefit and so the immune system. The mind finds peace and balance.
Practicers hold postures (asana) for long, so to learn the right alignments and at the same time stretch and strengthen muscle while staying focused on breathing.
Iyengar Yoga is a style that everyone at every age can practice.
Thanks to the use of the props, all practicers, even those with physical issues, practicing consistently, can reach great results.
Iyengar Yoga, as other yoga styles, is a practice of self-analysis and self-awareness. A practice focused on knowing oneself, starting with knowing one’s own body and the interactions between the body and the mind. Practicing Yoga leads us from the surface, the body, to the core of our being, the spirit.
