“Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed.”

В.K.S. Iyengar

Iyengar refers to B.K.S. Iyengar, who was an Indian yoga teacher and founder of the Iyengar Yoga method. He is widely considered one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century.

The Iyengar method is characterized by its focus on proper alignment and the use of props, such as straps, blocks, and blankets, to help students achieve correct postures. The method also emphasizes holding poses for extended periods of time and a deep understanding of the anatomical and physiological effects of each posture.

Iyengar’s method is popular for several reasons.

Firstly, it is known for its precision and attention to detail, which helps students to achieve correct alignment and avoid injury. 

Secondly, the use of props makes the practice accessible to people of all ages and abilities, as it allows students to modify poses to suit their individual needs. 

Additionally, Iyengar’s deep understanding of anatomy and physiology, as well as his innovative approach to yoga practice, have helped to make the method popular among yoga practitioners and teachers worldwide. 

Finally, Iyengar’s emphasis on the meditative and spiritual aspects of yoga practice has also contributed to the popularity of his method, as it offers a holistic approach to yoga that goes beyond just physical exercise.
