Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of the yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar. B.K.S. Iyengar is universally honored for his understanding and teaching of the art and science of yoga. He has touched and transformed the lives of countless students
and yoga practitioners around the globe.
His teachings are deeply grounded in the yoga sutras of Patanjali, an ancient summation of the path and philosophy of yoga considered to be at least 2,500 years old. He is the author of many books including Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, Light on the Yoga Sutras,
Tree of Yoga, and the more recently published Light on Life.
Through his intense practice and over seventy years of teaching Mr. Iyengar has produced significant innovations in the teaching of the art and science of yoga.
The method he developed, Iyengar Yoga, is one of the world’s most widely-practiced forms, emphasizes correct alignment of all parts of the body within each yoga pose. This precision builds strength and stamina–balance and flexibility–and a sense of well being. Achieving meditation in action, students learn to exist fully and vibrantly in the present moment. Iyengar Yoga is a powerful and sophisticated discipline which can be
practiced in all stages of life. The benefits are far-reaching and will
assist the practitioner in every aspect of daily living.
