The practice of yoga uncovers the connection between body and mind, while profoundly transforming both. Practice of the yoga postures (known as asanas) tones and regulates the body and teaches clarity and stability of mind.An innovative and inspired practice of yoga, the Iyengar method has been developed by the living yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar throughout a long career. Firmly based in the ancient Indian tradition of classical Ashtanga yoga as defined in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, Iyengar Yoga teaches strength and stamina, flexibility and balance, concentration and meditation.In Iyengar Yoga, the search for a developed consciousness begins with physical awareness. In each posture, every part of the body is acted upon with intent and precision. Yet Iyengar Yoga goes beyond the physical being to embrace emotional and spiritual growth. As students learn to extend awareness to each part of their body, they begin to explore the limitless potential of the mind and the soul. The two quests of the physical and the spiritual are not separate but parts of a complementary approach to self-realization and enlightenment.All teachers at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York are certified in the Iyengar method. Many have decades of teaching experience.
