Yoga is said to be 5000 years old. Ancient yogis formulated a way to achieve harmony through physical exercises.  Yoga is an ancient practice, which has stood the test of time.

Iyengar Yoga has a highly developed teaching practice with an emphasis on body alignment. Students are encouraged to be mindful of their abilities and limitations and work appropriately.

B.K.S. IYENGAR

Internationally acknowledged as a modern master of yoga, B.K.S. Iyengar is universally honored for his understanding and teaching of the art and science of yoga.,He is the author of “Light on Yoga”, considered one of the most authoritative modern yoga texts, and numerous other exceptional reference works.
As well as allowing for those with strong physical ability, B.K.S. Iyengar is a pioneer in the therapeutic applications of yoga. Medical professionals in many different disciplines and countries have recognized his expertise and efficacy.

Guruji, as he was known by his students, was a Yogi with an extraordinary physical practice himself, right up to the time he passed away, at the age of 95 in August 2014. Through his own struggle and commitment to a constant diligent practice, he made yoga accessible to and relevant for all. He revolutionized yoga by introducing yoga props.

We can still learn from him by reading his famous books or by traveling to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, where Guruji’s daughter and son Geeta and Prashant Iyengar, teach and refine this constantly evolving method. Teachers and practitioners from all over the world come regularly to hone skills for their own development and to take back to their own Iyengar Yoga Communities. In Guruji’s method and teaching we find a golden thread that connects us with the ancient practice of yoga.
