The Importance of a teacher in Iyengar Yoga

While a number of people learn yoga through TV or from videos but Iyengar Yoga is a style that is best learnt from a yoga teacher. At Om Yoga we pay close attention to anatomical details of the learners as each one has a different body structure. We do this because Iyengar style hatha yoga is a practice that calls for precision and we want each of the learners to get the alignment exactly right. The methods we adopt will enable the learners to approach their practice systematically. When you progress as a learner, you will find that you are gaining in strength and flexibility and that you are becoming a more aware individual.

How Iyengar Yoga is taught at Om Yoga Rishikesh

We at Om Yoga centre know that alignment is at the cornerstone of Iyengar Yoga. This is the reason we lay emphasis on the precise alignment or the positioning of the body in the correct pose. Correct alignment not only brings balance to the body but also protects the muscles, joints and even the organs of the body from injury. Here we pay special attention to alignment right at the initiation stage with our Beginner Iyengar Yoga learners so they do not adopt incorrect methods of arriving at a pose. The practitioner is taught the right way of doing the asana because the wrong way of doing them will most often not be beneficial. Iyengar alignment is taught in more detail during Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) so yoga teachers can impart the correct knowledge of alignment to their own students.

Pranayama and Iyengar Yoga

While the asana are based on hath yoga practices, Iyengar style of yoga also lays emphasis on the practice of pranayama, or yogic breathing. This same balance wrought from alignment can also help you in your pranayama and meditation learning and practice. Each asana in the sequence of poses is held for longer amount of time than in other yoga styles and is accompanied by breath control. If the body is balanced so is the breath and this balance automatically brings meditation into everyday life.

Benefits of Iyengar Yoga

Alignment is a requirement not just for the physical body but correct alignment facilitates the flow of energy. Alignment helps the body to create internal space because it is balanced and this balance will bring in more energy. If there are any blockages, energy flow will be obstructed, so aligning the body allows peak energy flow in the body. Iyengar style hatha yoga is practiced to bring balance into the body and mind which in turn build awareness. Awareness begins with the body and then moves to your mind and very soon you incorporate it as part of your daily routine. If you wish to bring physical and mental wellness into your life or teach this kind of wellness to others then learn Iyengar Style Hath yoga.
