Iyengar Yoga

IYENGAR Yoga is taught in more than 80 countries and is known all over the world for its seriousness and effectiveness.


It takes its name from the method created by Master B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014).
Master Iyengar was one of the great yogis of the XX-XXI century. Faithful to the tradition of Patanjali and Hatha Yoga, in ninety six years of complete dedication to yoga he has deepened the study and the effects of Asanas (positions) and Pranayama (breathing techniques). He has used them as a practical tool to prepare the body, the nervous system and the mind towards increasingly profound experiences such as introspection, control of the senses, concentration and meditation.

By introducing the use of supports in the asana practice, Iyengar has enabled also people who are physically less flexible or with important medical conditions to practice yoga. Iyengar was also a pioneer in putting into practice and systematising the enormous therapeutic potential of asanas.
The alignment, the symmetry, the precision in the execution, the sequence and the duration of the poses, are the peculiar characteristics of this method that effects all levels of the human being: physical, emotional and mental.

With the practice of Iyengar Yoga:

  • the joints become more stable
  • the muscles harmonize and strengthen
  • the limbs and spine come into alignment
  • the functioning of the circulatory system, the immune system and all the internal organs is improved
  • the mind calms down, rebalances and relaxes.
