Do you practice Iyengar Yoga or thinking about trying it out?

Iyengar Yoga is a form of Hatha yoga which traditionally focuses on alignment and precision. Iyengar emphasizes “sequencing” – referring to the order and timing of a sequence of asanas and breathing exercises.

Many props are used for Iyengar including blocks, straps, and blankets. Wear form- fitting, yet comfortable clothing.
