Iyengar yoga is one of the oldest forms of yoga that falls within hatha yoga. It focuses especially on alignment and precision in each posture. Iyengar yoga also teaches us how to integrate the eight aspects of ashtanga yoga and one of its fundamental concerns is the aspect of "sequencing", meaning the practice of grouping and linking certain asanas so that the practice makes sense and flows properly.

What are the benefits of Iyengar Yoga?

Apart from the basic benefits that any yoga practice brings to our physical and mental health, iyengar can be especially good for those who need to recover from injuries or contractures. Because of the attention that iyengar places on perfect alignment and precision, this style of yoga places less stress on the muscles and takes care of each movement so as not to cause injury. In turn, this awareness of movement translates into mental awareness.

Is it good for beginners?

Iyengar yoga is suitable for practitioners of all levels. For advanced yogis it is good for correcting alignment and, on the other hand, it is a good place to start practicing yoga, as it teaches us how to do asanas in a safe way.

What is an Iyengar yoga class like?

Iyengar yoga enjoys great popularity and is appreciated especially by those perfectionist practitioners because it demands great attention to specific movements and sequences that check the body.

However, Iyengar is also a fabulous style for those who do not pay so much attention to details but wish to deepen their yoga practice, as it will allow them to make sure that their asana practice is fully safe.
