BKS Iyengar's style of teaching yoga is respected worldwide for its vigour and sophisticated understanding of physical and mental movement. For balancing strength, flexiblity and endurance.

For over 70 years BKS Iyengar has refined and systematised over 200 classical asanas (postures), in such a way that is orderly, safe and progressive. The postures are adjusted to meet each students conditions and needs. Unlike endurance exercises, the practice of Iyengar yoga nurtures self awareness and integration of body, mind and soul.

Dedicated students build up their strength and stamina, improve suppleness, increase their energy, better their breathing and bring clarity, stability and serenity to their minds. They enjoy improved health and a greater sense of well being.


In Britain, the Iyengar Yoga Association of the United Kingdom regulates the quality of teaching in the country. Further information can be found at www.iyengaryoga.org.uk
