This style is named after Sri BKS Iyengar, a living master who has been developing this teaching method and practices for over 60 years. Iyengar yoga focuses on classic postures with a deep awareness of correct alignment and precise actions in the body. This method is appropriate for anyone, regardless of age, degree of health or other perceived limitations. In addition to building strength and flexibility, Iyengar yoga can help increase your ability to focus, observe, be present and relax. Because Iyengar teachers are required to pass on-going rigorous certifications they usually reflect an especially high level of integrity and expertise.
