Sri B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014) was one of the world’s leading and most influential exponents of yoga. Based in Pune, India, he had been teaching for over seventy years and devoted a lifetime to studying yoga. He has written key works on the philosophy and practice of yoga, of which the best known is "Light on Yoga". Today there are students and teachers trained in the Iyengar way all over the world, with nearly a thousand Iyengar yoga teachers in the UK.
The system of teaching is methodical and progressive, emphasising detailed correctness and absolute safety. When necessary, it uses supports called “props” that allow students to progress in their practice of postures safely at their own pace, to suit their own body. Beginners work in a basic way on simple postures according to their capabilities. As they develop they then move on to more refined ways of working as well as to more complex postures.
