The Iyengar Yoga method is based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar. The practice of Iyengar Yoga is characterised by precision and alignment, planned sequencing, timing and the use of props. Practice builds strength, stamina, balance and flexibility, which bring a sense of freedom and balance. The use of props makes Iyengar Yoga accessible to people of all ages by facilitating alignment and support in practice. With practice, awareness is developed and the mind is trained to focus on the present moment. This allows practitioners to experience quiet and stillness.
