|what is yoga?|
|Early documentation indicates that Yoga has been practiced for over 2000 years to advance spiritual growth. Today Hatha (physical) yoga is practiced by millions of people, mostly in the form of physical exercise, in order to promote physical and spiritual health. The exercises affect musculature, joints and organs, as well as the nervous and hormone systems. Strength, balance, co-ordination, endurance and body awareness are improved, resulting in an overall healthier state of being.|
|yoga practice - the method of b.k.s. iyengar|
Throughout its history, Yoga was influenced by
several masters. Today, the name B.K.S. Iyengar is among the best known.
The 83 year old lives in Puna, India, where he and his two children operate
the internationally known Iyengar Yoga Institute (RIMYI).
The Iyengar method focuses on physical exercises (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayama). Mr. Iyengar thoroughly re-worked the original exercises with western understanding of anatomy and physiology, so that today Yoga is instructed with a precise and understandable methodology.
