The teaching made up by BKS Iyengar is based on a deep practice of the postures, asanas, and on the yogic breathing, pranayama. 

The practice

The teaching is accurate and precise:

The practitioner learns to align the different parts of the body.

The organization of the postures is built up in a sequence that can be memorized by the practitioner.

The use of props, such as belts or blankets, helps to deepen the exploration of the postures.

The transmission of a knowledge

The Iyengar yoga teachers are trained and certified on the same principles all around the world.

Today, the French Iyengar yoga association counts about 2200 practitioner and a hundred of certified teachers.

The teaching of IYENGAR® Yoga is progressive and safe.
