IYENGAR YOGA IN MADEIRA

Happy landing in spacious Yoga alignment! Here you will find the only Yoga studio that offers certified Iyengar Yoga in Madeira, Portugal. Yoga classes are taught in a private setting, one-on-one and small groups, to ensure individual attention and adjustment. Yoga postures are adapted to be accessible to each practitioner according to their ability. 

Iyengar Yoga is an aesthetic art and an extensively researched science that is focused on the alignment of our body, mind and breath. The practice is guided with clear verbal cues and hands on adjustments to inspire conscious integration of different body parts and elements of awareness. Props are used to make it possible to hold Yoga postures for longer and feel more accurately the alignment of our muscles, bones, fascia, skin and organs, thus increasing the health benefits of Yoga.

Through gross physical alignment our subtle inner intelligence is awakened, ultimately inspiring a feeling of ‘union’ (the meaning of Yoga) with all aspects of our self, all beings and the natural pulse of life that flows inside and around us.

Iyengar Yoga is attributed to BKS Iyengar, one of the most influential Yoga teachers in the evolution of Yoga in the west. This style of Yoga is grounded in the teachings of T Krishnamacharya, whom is seen as the father of modern Yoga. By adapting the original Ashtanga Yoga system to suit individual bodies, BKS Iyengar revolutionised dynamic Yoga and introduced a greater emphasis on the therapeutic application of Yoga.
