Iyengar Yoga

 Yoga in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar



In this kind of teaching, special attention is paid to the anatomical orientation of the
body in the asana. Props such as blocks, blankets, rolls, chairs, belts, ropes and wall
can be used for various purposes: increase or diminish the intensity of an asana, to place
the focus of the asana, to compensate for physical flexibility or stiffness and practice
in a therapeutic approach. Also inverted postures like headstand and shoulder stand,  
passive poses and final relaxation (savasana) are essential  elements of the class structure.
In a sequence of a class relaxing and activating nervous systems are stimulated in a  balanced way.

Yoga classes with Alex are held in a fully equipped Iyengar yoga studio, "YoGoa", in Arambol Goa.
