Each pose is typically held for a longer period of time, allowing for greater relaxation. To enable the students to find comfort in each pose a variety of props are used, including straps, blocks, bolsters and chairs. B.K.S. Iyengar founded this style of yoga with the idea that the poses should be accessible to everybody. We are all beginners for the first 20 years. B.K.S. Iyengar died at 94 and is our inspiration that with an aligned body and mind we too can still be doing headstands until the end.
