Iyengar Yoga, created by B.K.S. Iyengar, is a form of yoga known for its rigorous teacher training and it's accessibility.
Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body through the development of asanas. It emphasises precise body alignment, development of strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance, as well as concentration and meditation.
Through his own vigorous practice, careful study of the earliest available texts, and instruction of thousands of students from all over the world, he has revitalised the ancient art of yoga.
The Iyengar yoga certification symbol is used exclusively by teachers across the world as an international standard of excellence in training and continuing education in the Iyengar method. The success and growth of Iyengar yoga are in large part due to the rigorous standards that were set by BKS Iyengar and now maintained by the Iyengar family.
