Iyengar Yoga is the method of Hatha Yoga developed by B.K.S. Iyengar of Pune, India. Mr. Iyengar is the author of Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, and other highly regarded books on Yoga. His method of Hatha Yoga is characterized by precision of body alignment, the use of props (blocks, straps, blankets, mats, and chairs) to help students accomplish various Yoga poses, and an understanding of the therapeutic potential of Yoga. The primary focus of Iyengar Yoga for beginners is on the physical Yoga poses. The student can then progress to learning specific breathing exercises (pranayama), and other aspects of Yoga.
