Iyengar Yoga

The Iyengar Yoga practice stresses body alignment to obtain the maximum benefits of any pose and avoid injury. It emphasises holding poses or asanas over long periods as against quick movement of the asanas. It also makes use of props such as yoga blankets, cushions, blocks, sand bags and straps in order to bring the body into alignment. Undoubtedly, these props used under the watchful supervision of the teachers are great help for beginners to practice the art of asanas with little difficulty and exhaustion. Some Iyengar Yoga practioners say if one is suffering from any physical ailment this yoga would help, besides making ones limbs stronger, increase vitality, improve circulation, coordination and balance in the body.
