Iyengar Yoga Practice by Michele Bohbot

Our founder having some fun on the ropes!

Iyengar Yoga is a form of yoga that holds the tremendous powers to benefit and heal the body. Its main features are alignment, timing and sequencing. Poses are held for long periods of time and often modified with props like bolster, blocks, ropes, as well as chairs to accommodate any body type. There are countless reasons to do yoga and these are:

Increased flexibility

Iyengar is a slow, gentle practice guiding you into stretches that are held for approximately one minute. The use of props is to enable any practitioner, from beginning to advanced, to hold postures without causing pain or injury.

Toned muscles

In addition to stretching your muscles, the physical demand of holding each pose will help you build strength as well as tone your body.

A calmer mind

Iyengar encourages you to focus on the alignment and ignore all other thoughts. You can think of it as a type of meditation, and like meditation, the more you practice it, the calmer your mind will be.

A Good Yoga Teacher

However, practicing yoga anywhere with anybody may not boast of the same benefits. Yoga cannot reap fruits without an efficient yoga teacher. Only an experienced and qualified teacher, well-versed with the principles and other essentials of yoga can impart the benefits to the practitioners.

Here’s what makes good yoga teachers.

  • Irrespective of the size of the class, the teacher must be able to develop a personal connect with all the students.

  • They must be passionate to share their knowledge and expertise.

  • They must have the patience and dedication to make a difference to each and every student in the class. Some students might have specific problems and issues. They must be ready to address and treat the unique issues of all students.

  • A good yoga teacher always works with the proper lesson plan for the yoga class. Only a well-planned yoga class can be completely beneficial.

  • Good yoga teachers are flexible, despite having a plan. They possess the capability to tweak their plans in tune with the student’s requirements.

  • Ultimately, the teacher must have a passion to teach, instruct and explain.

  • The teacher must be capable of commanding the students’ attention and ensure that they are attentive and participate in the class completely.
