Iyengar Yoga Schedule
ABOUT IYENGAR YOGA:
The Iyengar approach to yoga is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga expounded by Patanjali in his classic treatise, The Yoga Sutras, written over 2,500 years go. It is a disciplined and deeply research system developed over 75 years by Yogacharya BKS Iyengar who practiced daily during his 96 years – exploring, studying, writing and teaching about yoga. The practice and learning of Iyengar Yoga is orientated towards gradual but steady progress, rather than looking for quick and fleeting results. It is important, when coming to class, that a beginner student of yoga is encouraged to move along in their practice at their own pace, even though they are working in a group. In practice emphasis is given to different groups of asanas throughout the month – standing poses, forward bends, backbends and quieter restorative poses leading the student towards pranayama.
