What is Iyengar Yoga?
Iyengar Yoga is a style that focuses on the proper alignment of the body in various asanas of yoga. This style of yoga is more than just exercise; this step by step process leads you to mental and physical well being. The process leads the body, mind and soul to unite in a state that gives a feeling of completeness; of wholeness. The asanas are based on the philosophy of Sage Patanjali, the author of Ashtanga Yoga. In Ashtanga Yoga, asanas are the third step of yoga. They make the body flexible and ready for the next level of Ashtanga Yoga by regulating breathing and bringing on mental awareness.
The Iyengar system of asanas was developed by B.K.S. Iyengar; established with solid roots from Ashtanga Yoga teachings. This style of yoga creates a direct impact on the concentration, meditation, flexibility, awareness, strength and well being. It is proven that Iyengar yoga makes the body and mind stronger. Uniquely, in this style of yoga the poses are done while the performer is standing. It is necessary to have strict training in Iyengar Yoga if you are hoping to be able to teach in this style of yoga.

Observations of body movements is important for the teacher to analyze the progression of students.
