The word ‘yoga’ derives from the root yuj (unite): it’s the union between soul and eternal truth, a state of blissfulness that originates from overcoming contrasts.
The Iyengar method views yoga as the union between soul and mind through the practice of asana (posture) and pranayama (breathing) techniques.
The Iyengar approach works to cultivate alignment, symmetry, precision using sequencing and time in asana
Through constant and personalized work, everyone can experience freedom and stability within the various postures.
This method uses simple supports called props (wooden blocks, belts, blankets, stools, etc.) that allow practitioners to reach and maintain the postures more easily and for a longer time, to get the most benefit on a physical and mental level.
