Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training Rishikesh | India

About Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga, was developed by B. K. S. Iyengar. It is a form of Hatha Yoga and emphasizes on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of postures (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The practice helps you to develop strength, mobility and stability through the asanas. Iyengar yoga can be easily enjoyed without several years of practice. Props such as cushions, benches, blocks, straps and sand bags are used frequently allowing beginners to experience asanas more easily than might otherwise be possible. They also help injured or ill students to fully enjoy the benefits of the asanas. More advanced students can take their advantage in a better understanding of the asanas through the use of props. There are three unique aspects of Iyengar yoga: technicalities, sequencing and timing.

Technicalities

Detailed instructions are given so the student can learn how to access to the body through the outer, skeletal and muscular body into the subtleties of the mind. Often during the classes you will find yourself moving from simple poses to more complex ones, developing understanding of the mind, body and spirit through a step-by-step approach.

Sequencing

Refers to the order in which the asanas and pranayama are practiced. Each asana has different effects on the mind and proper sequencing prepares and cultures the mind, to make it conducive to your yoga practice.

Timing

Asanas can be held for different time lengths to enable a more profound exploration of the physical and mental challenges of the pose. It takes time to move into a posture and become stable. Remaining stable in a posture for longer time periods intensifies the depth of the posture and increases the benefits.
