'All of us have a dormant spark of divinity in us which has to be fanned into flames by yoga' B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga

Yoga is one of the oldest systems of personal development in the world. This system of balancing the body, mind and spirit was formulated by ancient yogis, who understood man's essential nature and realised a way to utilise all of man's inner resources to live in harmony with himself and the environment. Students learn through a carefully graded and systematic programme of asana (posture). Pranayama (breath control) is gradually introduced once students have a firm foundation of yoga practise. Yoga practise both relaxes and energizes the body and mind and brings vitality, flexibility, strength, concentration, self-confidence and mental calm. Yoga is suitable for all types of people and all levels of fitness.

Postures

  • Standing asanas- enhance elasticity in your joints and muscles. Build up stamina and physical stability.
  • Forward bends- stretch & extend the rear part of your body. They prepare the body to go further and bring consistency and evenness in the development of physical and mental calmness.
  • Inverted asanas- recover from the strains and stresses of everyday life and nurture vitality, mental balance, and emotional stability.
  • Abdominal twisting asanas- tone and massage your abdominal muscles and strengthen you pelvic and lumber area. With twisting asanas you will envigorate your spine, tone your internal organs and achieve greater tranquillity.
  • Backbend asanas- with these exercises you will develop physical sharpness and alertness. Your anterior spine is stretched and the effect is invigorating and enlightening.
  • Supine asanas- recover from fatigue and strain, and prepare mentally and physically for pranayama.

The world's most widely practised method of yoga is that taught by Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar (India 1918-2014). He has studied and practised Yoga continuously for over 70 years.

Iyengar's thorough study, understanding and mastery of yoga are unrivalled in modern times. Having taught in all five continents, he has won worldwide respect and recognition for his achievements and has made yoga accessible and relevant to people everywhere, no matter what their physical or mental ability.

'Words cannot convey the value of yoga. it has to be experienced' B.K.S. Iyengar
