Iyengar yoga

Yoga is a skillful practice that guides the individual toward an experience of wholeness. The path begins with the learning of asanas which strengthen and firm the body, focus the mind, and still the spirit. The practitioner discovers an inner balance and sense of well-being.

Iyengar yoga was developed over many years of research and practice by BKS Iyengar of India. There are three characteristics which distinguish Iyengar yoga from other styles: First, there is a strong emphasis on alignment so that health and well-being is maintained and furthered; secondly, there is the use of various sequences in order to arrive at particular outcomes.; and thirdly, there is the element of timing in the poses so that the duration is related to the desired outcome and to individual requirements.
