Iyengar Yoga

This yoga style was created by BKS Iyengar, one of the most famous yoga teachers worldwide. Iyengar Yoga emphasizes much on precise alignment of the posture and the yogis get often corrected. To support the students in performing a pose or experience an asana more precisely, BKS Iyengar decided to use props like straps, blankets, wooden blocks and chairs. These props prevent the participants also from suffering injuries and enable persons with corporal disorders to practice this yoga style, too. Other typical aspects of Iyengar Yoga are the longer holding of postures and the planned sequences. The latter signifies that the asanas should suit the inner (nervous and physical state of the yogis) and outer conditions (weather, time of day). All in all this yoga style of BKS Iyengar conveys strength, endurance, flexibility and concentration and its success is also due to the very well trained yoga teachers. With an Iyengar Yoga retreat you have the chance to improve your practice a lot and focuse on the details in each asana to feel more comfortable and secure during a yoga class.
