What is Iyengar Yoga?
Iyengar yoga is one of the most traditional types of yoga that holds the tremendous powers to benefit and heal the body. Iyengar yoga is a slow and gentle practice in which props are used which enables any practitioner, from beginners to advanced, to hold postures without causing pain or injury.
As Iyengar yoga engages the whole body, the attention goes not just to the main muscle, but instructs the practitioner to think about where the muscles are connected to other body parts and engage those as well. The result is an awesome full body toning experience. Iyengar yoga encourages one to focus on the alignment and ignore all other thoughts running in head and being in the moment. One can think of it as a type of meditation, and, like meditation, the more you practice it, the calmer your mind will be—on the mat and off of it. It is proven that Iyengar yoga creates a direct impact on the concentration, meditation, flexibility, awareness, strength and well being.
