What is IYENGAR YOGA?
The Iyengar Yoga is a method of posture (asana
) and breathing (pranayama
practices adapted by B. K. S. Iyengar
from classical Yoga teachings and as such it is considered as the most comprehensive
and consistent concept of Yoga training. One of the greatest benefits of Iyengar method
is its approach to the asana practice that is essential for achievement
of therapeutic and relaxation effects of Yoga. As the proper performance
of asana is very important, Mr. Iyengar has developed the use
of exercise props to help the body into the correct positions
that is important especially for beginners and for those who are not
able for any reason to master difficulty of asana without support.
This is a concept, which have no analogy in any other style of Yoga.
My name is Milena Raková (*1959)
My active interest in Yoga began long time before year 1978,
when I have started to attend regular lessons of Yoga.
Continuous focus and effort helped me to reach trainer certificate of the III. degree in 1988.
Seven years later I have reached trainer certificate of the II. degree.
In that time I met the Yoga techniques of Iyengar school that fully impressed
me because its training methods are in my opinion one of the most
consistent and comprehensive Yoga interpretations. I spent next two years
by training of Iyengar method of Yoga and preparation for 3-years teacher
training course conducted by internationally recognized trainers
from B. K. S. Iyengar - Yoga - Vereinigung Deutschland.
In 1999 I have been graduated and obtained Introductory teaching certificate
of Iyengar Yoga. Three years later I have been graduated to the next stage - Junior Intermediate Level I.
Best way to keep my knowledge and skills is continuous perfection;
Iyengar Yoga offers approach to the endless improvement.
