"Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured." B.K.S. Iyengar
Iyengar Yoga Therapy
Iyengar yoga therapeutics is a world renowned approach to yoga therapy that addresses each person’s ailments within a holistic and highly personalized framework. Iyengar yoga therapy has been scientifically shown to improve patients’ overall wellbeing and quality of life. Iyengar yoga is effective at improving musculoskeletal pain (including back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles), mobility, strength, depressive symptoms, mood, physical function, body image, balance, anxiety, dysmenorrhea, and gastrointestinal disorders. Iyengar Yoga is at the forefront of medical research into the efficacy of yoga on a variety of conditions as it is known for its precision in addressing root problems as well as co-occuring conditions, individualized actions with the support of props, and skillful sequencing. It is a process that is not a quick fix, but rather one that seeks to investigate layers of one’s being to help bring clarity and integration.
