the iyengar method

All teachers at Pines Iyengar Yoga are certified teachers in the Iyengar Method. The cornerstones of the Iyengar Method are:

  • Attention to detail
  • Use of props to deepen learning and make all postures accessible to individuals
  • Sequencing of the postures that helps develop strength, flexibility, stamina, concentration and the correct body alignment
  • Iyengar Yoga is a means of self-improvement that extends beyond the physical body towards a greater understanding of the self

 

BKS Iyengar

BKS Iyengar is often credited with bringing yoga to the Western Hemisphere.  He presented yoga in a format which his students could easily understand, experience, assimilate and incorporate into their daily lives.  By introducing props, he made yoga accessible to all ages and body types.  By refining a teaching technique over 70 years, he created one of the most respected certifications in the industry. By expanding on the therapeutic application of yoga, he brought yoga to the fore as an option to alleviate any human condition.
