The Institute’s colourful, fully-equipped and dedicated studio is the only one of its kind in the Midlands.
The system that has come to be known as ‘Iyengar yoga’ was developed by the world-renowned teacher B.K.S. Iyengar. Mr Iyengar has evolved precise asana (posture) and pranayama (breathing) techniques based on the principles of Patanjali and many, many, years of practice.
The Iyengar system helps individuals to make progress according to their own abilities, and is a methodical, progressive inclusive approach, emphasising detailed correctness and absolute safety. To enable safe progress Mr Iyengar has developed the use of props such as foam blocks, wooden bricks, blankets and belts, which help support the body in the different postures to improve ability in a safe manner.
