Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Based on Iyengar Style

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.
