Why Choose Iyengar Yoga

People choose Iyengar yoga because it aligns with their personal goals, preferences, and values in a yoga practice.
The emphasis on systematic learning, accessibility, and general health benefits make Iyengar yoga a compelling choice for many.

1. Precision and Technique: The precision, refining and sequencing of poses helps individuals become more aware of the subtle aspects of each movement.

2. Use of Props: Using yoga props at times like belts, bricks, and blankets makes the practice more accessible to varying fitness levels and body types.

3. Health Benefits: A general Iyengar yoga class will often improve health and overall well-being.

4. Accessible to All Ages: Iyengar yoga is accessible to all ages, including beginners and those with physical limitations. This attracts people wanting a practice they can sustain throughout their lives. “Every person has an equal right to the subject and the path is equally relevant for all” – BKS Iyengar

5. Mindful Approach: Iyengar classes offer varieties of pacing for greater introspection, increased body awareness, and improved concentration.

6. Systematic Progression: There is a progression from foundational poses to more challenging ones which appeals to those who like a clear and organized development in their practice.

7. Focus on Breath Awareness: Iyengar yoga helps the student become more aware of their breathing.

8. Certification and Education Standards: Iyengar yoga has extremely qualified teachers who apprentice for many years and then undergo an internationally guided certification process. Teachers continue to practice and learn all the time.

9. Philosophical Depth: Iyengar yoga incorporates philosophical yoga teachings, providing practitioners with an experience that goes beyond the physical postures. This philosophical depth can be appealing to those seeking a more comprehensive yogic journey.

” Be in the present, not in the memory of the past or in the future. The mind must be in the present, in the moment” BKS Iyengar

The Iyengar yoga centre is like home to me! There is a sense of inclusivity and community as soon as you walk through the door. Experienced teachers guide us from wherever we are. I appreciate the clean bright space with the big windows and wide floors. – LH
