Dedicated to teaching Yoga in the Iyengar way, as taught by BKS Iyengar
Iyengar yoga gets its name from BKS Iyengar, student of Krishnamakarya. Iyengar developed a system of practicing yoga, which uses props and supports to assist students to practice yoga no matter what their age or ability. Iyengar yoga is known for its precision and accuracy. Great care is taken to learn and practice the yoga asanas correctly. Practicing in this concentrated way brings depth and understanding. A system of props is used, to help people who have difficulty in some of the yoga asanas. Blocks, belts, ropes, chairs and blankets are often used to bring new understanding or to enhance a yoga Asana. With Iyengar yoga there is no such thing as 'I cant do'...there is always a way.
All teachers of Iyengar yoga are trained
to very high standards and fully insured;
this is part of the reason that Iyengar
yoga is one of the most widely-performed
methods of yoga worldwide. When you
see the Certification Mark it means the
teacher has completed at least three
years of regular Iyengar yoga classes
followed by two years’ teacher training,
and has successfully passed a rigorous
assessment. Intermediate and Senior
teachers have been practising and
training for many more years and have
passed a series of further assessments.
All Iyengar teachers are required to
maintain their professional development.
