Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga gets its name from B. K. S. Iyengar, who developed this as a variation to Hatha Yoga and continued practising it until his death at the age of 96.  While providing all the standard benefits of yoga, Iyengar places a huge emphasis on alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility, and stability is gained through the postures. It is strictly alignment-based and instructors focus on getting the pose just right and, if necessary, using numerous props to do so. 

Note: Students should bring their own yoga mat; all other equipment is provided.
