What is Iyengar Yoga?
Close attention is paid to anatomical details and the alignment of each posture; Iyengar Yoga is the practice of precision. Poses are held for long periods giving your body and mind time to understand. This method is designed to systematically cultivate strength, flexibility, stability, and awareness, and can be therapeutic for specific conditions.
Iyengar stretches and strengthens your muscles, which in turn plays a big part in toning your body. Focus is on the body as a whole, rather than a chosen few larger muscle groups. Emphasis on alignment and posture has been proven to work wonders for people with neck and back pain, along with people who work jobs that involve a lot of sitting.
Props also play a role, such as belts, blocks, and blankets, as aids in performing asanas (postures). The props enable students to perform the asanas correctly, minimizing the risk of injury or strain, and making the postures accessible to both young and old.
