Iyengar Yoga is now practiced in 85 countries around the world. He created a unique synthesis of classical yoga and western medical science by refining the yoga practice through correct anatomical positioning, physiological functioning, proper sequencing and timing in the practice of asanas and pranayama. He also developed the therapeutic applications of yoga, making it accessible to all.
The workshops range from Introduction to yoga, yoga for men, Yoga for over 60s, yoga for sleep problems, Introduction to Iyengar method, yoga for office workers, yoga philosophy, restorative yoga.
