Iyengar yoga is named after and developed by B.K.S. Iyengar who was partly responsible for bringing the practice of modern yoga, as we know it now, to the West. It is precise and progressive method that’s easily understood by the student. Lots of attention is paid to the technical alignment of the poses and in this way the yoga poses are held for longer periods of time and props are used to assist students within each asana. Sequencing (the order in which the postures are practiced) also plays a key role in the Iyengar method and is implemented in such a way as to bring a balance between the physical and emotional body. All these aspects contribute to help develop strength and flexibility, along with sensitivity and awareness between the body and mind.
