Ballarat Iyengar Yoga teaches yoga asanas in the Iyengar style. Iyengar yoga is characterised by precision and alignment in performing the asanas as well as the duration for which they are held. Props may also be used such as blankets, bolsters and belts to facilitate alignment and support in the asanas.
Precise alignment of the body helps to correct postural imbalances. Correct alignment brings a sense of freedom and equilibrium.
The Iyengar Yoga Certification Mark (pictured below) is used under licence by certificated Iyengar Yoga teachers worldwide.
This mark recognises teachers of Iyengar Yoga who have completed intensive teacher training, have undergone a rigorous assessment process and must undertake continuing education to renew or upgrade their certificate to a higher level. These stringent requirements ensure an internationally recognised standard of excellence in teaching.
