“Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life.” — B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Life
Iyengar Yoga for physical and mental well-being
The Fluent Yoga experience is based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014), the father of modern yoga, whose devoted practice and continuous innovation transformed the way we approach the subject today. Mr. Iyengar taught yoga as a wonderful and adaptable tool for holistic living and proper integration of body and mind. The most fundamental belief in Iyengar Yoga is that everyone — regardless of age and ability – can and should benefit from the practice of asana (postures) and pranayama (breath awareness/meditation) under the guidance of an experienced teacher.
Is Yoga Indian?
While yoga as a multifaceted and rich system of philosophy and practice was developed and refined in the Indus Valley, yoga is universal: You will benefit as long as you have a physical body because of its experiential nature.
In the preface to Mr. Iyengar’s 1966 masterpiece, Light on Yoga, considered the “Bible of modern yoga,” violin virtuoso, Yehudi Menhuin called Mr. Iyengar “the best violin teacher I have had.”
