The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means union. Yoga is the union of body, mind and soul. Yoga is a science, a philosophy and a art.
The treatise on yoga par excellence, Yoga Sutras, composed by the wise Patañjali between the 5th and 2nd centuries BC.C., systematizes the science of Yoga for the first time in 196 aphorisms, in which the path that the practicioner must follow to achieve the goal of Yoga is exposed.
The practice and teaching of the Iyengar master are based on the purest tradition of the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali. “IYENGAR® Yoga" is the name used by its own students to differentiate it from other styles of yoga.
IYENGAR® Yoga is one of the most practiced yoga methods in the world, with associations, centers and teachers spred all over the world.
