is one of the oldest systems of personal development in the world. This system
of balancing the body, mind and spirit was formulated by the ancient yogis, who
understood man’s essential nature, and realised a way to utilise all of man’s
inner resources to live in harmony with himself and his environment.
Yoga has been developed over the last 60 years by Mr B K S Iyengar, a
world-renowned teacher and a leading authority on yoga who has written several
textbooks which have become yoga classics. It is his specialised teaching and
guidance which inspires the practice of what we now call the Iyengar
system is both dynamic and challenging, based on classical yoga postures. It is
performed with precision and attention to detail.
of the features which sets Iyengar Yoga apart from other methods is the unique
way in which he has devised props to aid the practitioner towards achieving a
solid base and good alignment in the postures, both of which are essential for
maximum benefit from the practice.
and women of all ages can benefit from Iyengar Yoga. It is practised by millions
worldwide to maintain good health. Regular practice can bring about physical,
mental and emotional equilibrium.
