Over yoga en Iyengar yoga
With yoga you save energy.
You do this by consciously allowing yourself the time and space for this. That’s what you do with yoga. With yoga, you get moving in a healthy way so that you not only use energy but also get and keep it.
Why yoga, you may ask. While you make dozens of choices every day to give people and situations the attention they deserve. Your work, colleagues, family, friends, and relatives. And yourself? How do you make sure you still have energy left for yourself?
Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, and described in his bestselling 1966 book Light on Yoga, is a form of yoga as exercise that has an emphasis on detail, precision, and alignment in the performance of yoga postures (asanas).
The style often makes use of props, such as belts, blocks, and blankets, as aids in performing the asanas. The props enable beginning students, the elderly, or those with physical limitations to perform the asanas correctly, minimizing the risk of injury or strain. ( bron Wikipedia)
Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar (14 December 1918 – 20 August 2014) was an Indian teacher of yoga and author. He is founder of the style of yoga as exercise, known as “Iyengar Yoga“, and was considered one of the foremost yoga gurus in the world. He was the author of many books on yoga practice and philosophy including Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Light on Life. Iyengar was one of the earliest students of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who is often referred to as “the father of modern yoga”. He has been credited with popularizing yoga, first in India and then around the world.
The Indian government awarded Iyengar the Padma Shri in 1991, the Padma Bhushan in 2002, and the Padma Vibhushan in 2014. In 2004, Iyengar was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine. Read more
