Infuse Health’s Iyengar Yoga School practices Iyengar Yoga, a style of yoga emphasising technique, sequencing and timing. Developed by BKS Iyengar, this yoga style is designed to make yoga accessible for all, using props and aids to help participants achieve an optimal pose (asana), regardless of fitness or ability.
The aim of Iyengar Yoga is to help everyone benefit from improved health by uniting the body, mind and spirit through precise, ordered movements. Our certified Iyengar Yoga teachers guide participants through an ordered sequence at their own pace, only proceeding once both asana (pose) and pranayama (breath control) have been mastered.
Props, such as belts, blankets, blocks, ropes and chairs are utilised to help position the body correctly, to achieve optimal benefit. The use of props can also help those with mobility challenges participate and enjoy the benefits of Iyengar Yoga. Props are also used to intensify, challenge, deepen, relax or support poses, at every level.
Here at Infuse Health, we passionately believe yoga is for everyone. Our aim is to make yoga accessible to all, regardless of age, ability, experience or capacity. Our certified Iyengar Yoga teachers adapt their lessons to suit your needs so you too can take advantage of optimal health and wellbeing.
The advantage of our Iyengar Yoga School lies in our focus on correct positioning and in our use of props. Taking the time for self-observation, and improving the quality of your asana (pose), means you work at your own level, in line with “todays” capacity. Correct positioning also means you get to enjoy the more of the many benefits of yoga, including improved concentration, less stress, increased strength and greater mobility.
The use of props in Iyengar Yoga helps people of all abilities to take part. Belts, blocks, ropes and chairs can help you attain the right position, ensuring you get the most benefit from each asana. As you progress, props can also be used to challenge you further, ensuring you continue to get the most out of each session.
