Iyengar Yoga has been developed over a period of seventy years by Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar.

In the Iyengar system, special focus is placed on alignment, timing, and sequencing. Alignment of the bones and joints leads to better balance with less work of the muscles. In this way we gain more stability in the asanas with less effort. Proper alignment improves circulation, creates inner space (literally in the joints), and brings a balanced flow of energy through the whole body, which leads to health and well being. Attention to alignment in yoga is much more than making a list of points to remember while performing asanas. It is about developing a body awareness that reaches into all aspects of life.

Longer timing in the poses builds stamina, allowing tight muscles to lengthen and relax, and the benefits penetrate deeper into organic and mental levels.

The sequence of the poses taught provides the student with increased awareness of the physical, mental, and emotional changes, which occur during the practice. Vitality, balance and coordination are all enhanced.

Only after many years of practice, study, and training do teachers become certified Iyengar Yoga instructors. Teachers can individualize poses to each person's physical needs by utilizing props, such as blankets, belts, chairs, blocks, and rope wall .

Iyengar Yoga is meditation in action; practising the postures with awareness has an integrating effect and works to harmonise mind and body. As practice continues, a student's ability to relax and concentrate generally improves markedly..
