The health benefits of yoga

on the mind and body have been recognised for centuries. Iyengar Yoga works the whole human system, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, the internal organs and the respiratory, glandular and nervous systems. In short, Iyengar Yoga keeps the body young, strong and supple, helps purify and detoxify the internal organs and calms the nervous system and the mind. This is achieved through the physical yoga postures (yoga asanas) yogic breathing (pranayama) and meditation.



Iyengar Yoga

is one of the most respected and well known types of yoga in the world. There are almost 1000 Iyengar Yoga teachers in the U.K. alone. The Iyengar system has spread from Pune, India, around the world. Iyengar Yoga teachers have to complete at least 2 years of rigorous training, as well as having practiced Iyengar Yoga regularly for at least 5 years with a qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher and pass tightly regulated exams before they can teach members of the public. They also have to participate in regular Professional Development training, run by the I.Y.A. (U.K.) to keep their teaching practice up to date with new techniques.
