About Iyengar Yoga
BKS Iyengar is considered the father of alignment-based, therapeutic, and restorative yoga. Iyengar yoga stresses alignment and postural balance as a gateway to both inner and outer transformation and healing. BKS Iyengar invented most of the props typically found across various yoga settings today: mats, blankets, bolsters, straps, and more. His style of yoga integrates props to adapt traditional yoga postures for a Western body: helping us to truly start from where we are, taking our practice further, and experiencing a greater depth to the practice.
