Welcome to the Yoga Journal Iyengar Yoga Diretory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Iyengar Yoga into their practice and philosophy.
Iyengar Yoga was created by B. K. S. Iyengar and is based on the eight limbs of yoga as explained by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras. Iyengar a form of hatha yoga, emphasizes the development of strength, stamina, flexibility and balance. This style of yoga is great for beginners because a primary focus is on alignment and the structure of the posture. In addition, advanced practioners may focus may be on discovering the most advance level of a pose and inner states of the mind. Iyengar yoga aims to unite the mind, body and spirit to promote health and well-being. A typical class moves at a slower pace with precise attention to the posture. Poses are often modified with props and a lot of adjustments given by the teacher. Iyengar teachers complete a minimum of two years of rigorous training in order to receive just the introductory certificate. A senior levels teacher will have potentially many more years of training.
