Iyengar Yoga with Nancy Kelley
Iyengar Yoga is known for its emphasis on precision and alignment in the postures and for making use of various props such as see blankets, blocks, straps, pillows, and bolsters . The use of these props is comparatively new in the history of yoga and comes directly from Iyengar. The purpose of the props is to assist the student in attaining ideal alignment, even if the body is not yet open enough.
Even though this style of practice is adaptable to different levels, Iyengar is also very appealing to more advanced yogis who want to work on their alignment. People who have an interest in anatomy, and an appreciation of subtle movements in the body may enjoy Iyengar-style practice.
