Iyengar Yoga is an intense learning experience that touches both body and mind. It is based on the in-depth practice of yoga postures (asanas) and yogic breathing (prayanama) and is characterized by its precision and attention to body alignment.
Staying in postures for quite a long time - compared to other styles of yoga - generates strength and flexibility. The biochemical and mental effects of the postures unfold. Thoughts calm down. Regular Iyengar yoga practice leads to a deep work on oneself.
The targeted use of aids (props) such as blocks, bolsters or belts allows everyone to overcome their physical limitations, deepen their practice and experience the beneficial effects of yoga, regardless of age or constitution.
