Ballarat Iyengar Yoga
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. It is this alignment that is refreshing to the body and mind and it leaves us feeling restored after a class. Iyengar yoga is named after BKS Iyengar – the man who investigated classical hatha yoga and applied stringent detail and self-examination to his own practice to discover what asanas can do for the human body, mind and soul. It is his methodology of attention to detail that we teach at BIY.
