Iyengar Yoga

Glenn and Margaret Ceresoli practise and teach the method of Iyengar yoga. It is an intelligent, systematic approach to the practice of yoga that requires the practitioner to deliberately replace unconscious habitual responses with deliberately implemented conscious ones.

Some features unique to the Iyengar method of yoga are:

  1. Alignment of the body is taught with technical precision and insightful understanding.
  2. Equipment, known as yoga props, is used to facilitate the poses (asanas). Props allow the practitioner to experience the benefits of an asana even if they cannot do it independently. They also help the less experienced practitioner to better understand an asana and how to better arrive at it independantly.
  3. The sequencing of the asanas is taught in order to be effective and safe whilst providing the best possible environment for learning.

Alignment of the body structure is a major feature in the practice of asana in the Iyengar method. As an international teacher, Glenn sees evidence all around the world that alignment has fast been adopted as an essential point of focus in many other styles of yoga, not only in the Iyengar method.

Thanks to Iyengar Yoga, alignment has been acknowledged as an essential ingredient to the process of practicing yoga worldwide.
