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 all 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.
