The term “Iyengar Yoga” is shorthand for classical yoga taught
by the methods developed by Yogacharya BKS Iyengar of Pune, India (pictured right).
Iyengar Yoga was founded in 1936 by Yogacharya Sri Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja (B.K.S.) Iyengar. Iyengar believed that it is incorrect to differentiate between specific methods of yoga as they all share the same root and purpose. However, his name started to be associated with the methodology of his teachings and as such Iyengar Yoga came to be recognised as a discrete branch of Yoga.
The Iyengar methodology is renowned for its safe, orderly and progressive approach to teaching the sophisticated subtleties of Yoga. The method is very precise with great attention given to correct practice. You start with asanas (postures), including savasana (relaxation) and gradually more difficult asanas are introduced as your depth of understanding increases.
