Full Description

Buddha Retreats Iyengar Yoga Program in Portugal

Iyengar yoga is a dynamic and physically intensive form of yoga in which correct alignment of the asanas (postures) is important. This practice allows the energy to flow freely through the body. The practice of yoga will give strength and flexibility to the body and more peace in our mind.

The roots of Iyengar yoga originated in India and were founded by BKS Iyengar (1918) who was a student of Sri T. Krishnamacharya. All our Iyengar yoga teachers are fully qualified and have done several years of teacher training.

Iyengar yoga is suitable for all levels. In addition to yoga workshops, we also give weekly classes. Asana practice is a big part of each yoga class. By practicing asanas, the body develops flexibility, strength and stamina; and by cultivating the body, the mind can become clear and quiet.
