HOW CAN IYENGAR YOGA HELP YOU?

Yoga is first and foremost a spiritual path. However, people often come to it for a variety of practical reasons: insomnia, aching backs, stiff legs, anxiety. In the process of curing these issues they experience the transformative power of yoga which brings a sense of profound well-being.

Yoga works every fibre of the body; the joints, organs, glands, circulation, skin and nerves. It promotes strength, suppleness and vitality.

As well as a sense of internal harmony and well-being, it reduces stress and increases energy levels and powers of concentration.

Yoga can be adapted for all ages and levels of fitness and health to obtain maximum benefit from the asanas according to their needs.

WHAT IS IYENGAR YOGA?

B.K.S. Iyengar was named by Time magazine as “one of the 100 most influential people in the world,” and is widely regarded as the foremost living yoga teacher. His approach develops self-awareness through precision in alignment and movement and attention to the subtle relationship between body, breath, mind, and spirit.

Iyengar’s thorough study, understanding and mastery of yoga are unrivalled in modern times. Having taught in five continents, he has won worldwide respect and recognition for his achievements and has made Yoga accessible and relevant to people everywhere, no matter what their physical or mental ability.

He continues to set the standard for his teachers and students while his textbooks on yoga have become classics. He is based at and runs the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, where his daughter Smt. Geeta and son Sri Prashant Iyengar are also directors. There are over 2000 qualified Iyengar yoga teachers in the world in over 40 countries with over 180 Iyengar yoga associations worldwide.

David Ades, CFO

Nowadays, the practice of Yoga is an integral part of my daily life. Even though I lead a very full life I always make the time to do a daily yoga practice. It improves everything else I do; it off-sets the stress of my demanding job, and enables me to be a devoted family man and lead a healthy and fulfilled life with a great sense of well-being. And more important, yoga has induced me to look inside, to be aware are the consequence of our own action. The discipline and patience in yoga practice has convinced me that we can reverse our imbalance and frustrations or, at least, learn how to bear then..

The reasons why I started Yoga have definitely evolved over the years. In the beginning it was different: slow, hard, difficult to focus … and this is where if it hadn’t been for Lorraine's particular teaching approach I would have given up, without a doubt, because I tried other teachers in my first years.

Every day my yoga progresses, it becomes more enjoyable, and for some reason more natural. I always believe that I am just starting to scratch the surface of what Yoga is all about, and I want to discover more and more.

But, to have dropped Yoga in the beginning it would have been so easy...

I really feel I had the privilege of receiving Lorraine’s attention from day one! She was able to guide me according to every stage of my practice. Always, teaching with outstanding standards, and encouraging me to discover my own freedom.

Even though I don’t live in London anymore, I try my best to visit her every year. Her words simply connect, and her intuition is unique.
I have no words to thank her, for having introduced me to wonderful science and art of Iyengar Yoga.
