IYENGAR - which yoga style is right for you? - picture - Women's Health & Fitness


Iyengar yoga was developed by BKS Iyengar as a style of yoga that could be mastered by anyone. He developed an approach to yoga postures that emphasise alignment and precision. This style of yoga is also well known for the use of props (such as blocks, belts and blankets) to make the classical postures more accessible to the average person. Frequently, postures are held for longer than other styles of yoga. Another aspect of this style is the restorative sequences, which again use props to allow you to stay in supported positions for extended periods of time.
