About Iyengar Yoga

What is iyengar yoga?

The Iyengar method of yoga is named after the Indian yoga teacher & author B.K.S. Iyengar (born 1918 - 2014). He is acknowledged as being one of the worlds leading yoga teachers who brought yoga to the west. BKS Iyengar established the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Institute in Pune, India in 1975 for international students to study. 


Teaching focuses on correct alignment of the body ensuring you’re working safely, with maximum benefit to your flexibility, strength and wellbeing. 


It takes at least six years of practice and training to qualify as an Iyengar yoga teacher. High standards are maintained through ongoing training and professional development, maintaining close links with the Iyengar Institute in India.

Use of props

‘Yoga can be practised by anyone, whatever one’s state of mind or health‘ B.K.S Iyengar


Props, such as bricks and belts, were invented by BKS Iyengar to allow those with less strength or flexibility to work correctly and achieve their full pote​ntial. This enables Iyengar yoga to be practiced by anyone no matter their age or ability.
