Benefits

In practice, Iyengar yoga is said to focus on the following three aspects:
 
  • Correct body alignment - to avoid injury or adverse pain when practising correctly
  • Strengthening, toning and relaxing muscles – to be able to support the postures and improve the body
  • The use of props (blankets, belts and foam blocks) to assist the body into the correct positions, allowing for different levels of strength, fitness and mobility.
Further benefits I have experienced are:
 
  • Stronger muscles, tendons and joints
  • Improved body tone and suppleness
  • Addresses many symptoms of stress, such as stiff necks, lower backache and insomnia
  • Improved concentration, and
  • Vitality
Iyengar yoga is not gymnastics and doesn’t involve listening to music. The reward of better relaxation (usually following the class) comes from having stretched the body in a sustained way. Breathing exercises or ‘pranayama’ is only introduced after several years practice, so as not to cause physical or mental harm.
