Iyengar yoga is a form of Hatha yoga which focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body through the practice and development yoga postures (asanas). Yoga is a powerful tool in helping to relieve the stresses and strains of modern day life and, through regular practice helps to create a connection between the body, mind and spirit.

Developed by BKS Iyengar, Iyengar yoga is known for its use of props, such as belts and blocks, as aids in performing postures. This helps in moving the body into the correct position / alignment and so helps to experience the poses more fully than might otherwise be possible.

The benefits of regular yoga practice include improvements in health, strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, concentration and confidence ....... as well as giving one a general feeling of well being.  Initially standing poses are emphasized as they build strong legs, increase general vitality, and improve circulation, co-ordination and balance, ensuring a strong foundation for the study of more advanced poses.
