Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas.
Iyengar Yoga often makes use of props, such as belts, blocks, and blankets, as aids in performing asanas (postures). The props enable students to perform the asanas correctly, minimizing the risk of injury or strain, and making the postures accessible to both young and old.
Iyengar Yoga is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras
We feel very lucky and very excited to welcome a very special teacher that is highly requested worldwide. Jaya teaches Iyengar and hatha Yoga and is living in Rishikesh, India at the moment. He is coming all the way from India to teach at our retreat. Words to describe his teaching will never do him justice, he is no doubt one of the best teachers in the world. His detailed and precise explanations of each postures characterize him as an excellent teacher as it is almost impossible for you to get injured. He will teach you to master the most challenging postures by giving lots of different options so that you can deepen in your posture comfortably. Jaya was one of my teacher during my Yoga teacher training in India, and let's just say that the students never wanted the classes to end :) We feel very honored that he is taking time to travel this far to gift us with his teachings.
