"Over 75 years ago, Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar founded and developed the Iyengar Yoga school of yoga. Mr. Iyengar dedicated his life to the development of his yoga philosophy, which is based on the conventional eight limbs of yoga first given by the philosopher Patanjali over 2500 years ago. Mr. Iyengar established yoga with the idea that it is more than just a physical discipline; it is also an art, a science, and a philosophy. All ages and body types can practice Iyengar yoga. It is renowned for emphasizing time and accuracy as well as the use of Mr. Iyengar-designed props, which enable practitioners to achieve asana perfection. Iyengar yoga regularly practiced unifies the body, mind, and emotions. A universal, consistent system of education distinguishes Iyengar Yoga from other approaches. Iyengar yoga teachers that have attained certification (CIYTs) have undergone extensive training and testing. Only CIYTs are allowed to refer to their teaching style as Iyengar Yoga. CIYTs are qualified to give precise explanations of each posture and are adept at maximizing the openness and awareness of the body by employing inexpensive props to assist the less flexible and extend the more experienced student. I have been practicing Iyengar Yoga for the past 4/5 years. My experience has been great and hence I urge everyone to at least give it a try."
