B.K.S. Iyengar developed his innovative and inspired approach to yoga through intense practice and self-study. His seminal book, Light on Yoga, has been continuously in print since originally published in 1966. Iyengar Yoga is oriented towards gradual but steady progress, rather than quick and fleeting results. By paying close attention to anatomical details and the alignment of each posture, Iyengar Yoga is the practice of precision. Unique sequences are used to guide students through a safe and systematic progression. Involving props, like blankets, belts, blocks, benches, wall ropes, sandbags, chairs, and other objects, helps students to maximize the opening and awareness of the body; providing support to the less flexible, and extra extension to the more advanced student.
Iyengar yoga is the third major piece on my physical and spiritual journey. It connected and enhanced all that I had already collected. On a mental level it made me more sharp, alert and confident. On a spiritual level it deeply clarified that the practice of yoga is another “active way” of meditation. I have been a committed Iyengar Yoga practitioner since 2010 and in 2017 I finished the 2 year teacher training program in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York. I am still continuing my educational process of this method by taking, observing and assisting weekly classes in the Iyengar Institute.
