- Iyengar Yoga
Strength, stability, suppleness, skill, stamina, subtlety, support and stillness are just a few of the qualities brought forth by Iyengar Yoga. At Yarra Ranges Yoga, we teach exclusively in the Iyengar method.
Iyengar Yoga is the yogic system named after Mr BKS Iyengar, who celebrated his 93rd birthday in December and who still practices daily! The sequencing, timing, technique/ attention to detail and repetition, as well as the use of props are often defined as the characteristics which distinguish the Iyengar system from other forms of yoga.
The Iyengar method is a practical system of yoga in which everyone, regardless of fitness or flexibility, can safely participate. Great attention is paid to alignment of the skeletal and muscular body, allowing the practitioner to steadily gain strength, flexibility and balance using the support of props as required. Practising Iyengar Yoga may help you overcome or prevent many stresses, strains, aches and pains. It promotes a firm foundation for health and well-being. Iyengar yoga teachers undergo rigorous assessments and a thorough training program over many years to attain certification. This includes many hundreds of hours training, covering yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (breath control), yogic philosophy, and anatomy & physiology. Only certified teachers are permitted to use the Iyengar Yoga certification mark.
This is the Iyengar Yoga certification mark - it indicates the authenticity and dedication of your teacher to upholding the Iyengar yoga method.
