Bobby Clennell an Intermediate Senior II Iyengar Yoga teacher in New York created a beautiful video depicting geometrical patterns within each asana. Check it out!

“In India, sacred geometric patterns, known as yantra, are used as an aid to meditation and to call up aspects of divinity. B.K.S. Iyengar describes asana, each one of which also has it’s own precise geometrical shape, as meditation in action. This film combines images based on film footage of B.K.S. Iyengar in practice, traditional Vedic yantras and mandalas, and devotional Indian music.” -Bobby Clennell

Words from Guruji B.K.S Iyengar ”Yoga is firstly for individual growth, but through the individual, society and community develop.”

A recent article came out in the Huffington Post, titled Making Yoga Affordable to All interviewing Peggy Hong  who “became a certified Iyengar Yoga instructor in 2005, and currently holds an Intermediate Junior II certificate from the Iyengar Yoga National Association. She teaches “Community Gift” pay-what-you-can classes at Iyengar Yoga Detroit and New Work Field Street Collective in Detroit, Michigan”.

One of the beauties of yoga is to create a sense of community within the space we practice in. In offering a variety of access points to free or pay what you can classes, IYISF aims to spread the teachings of B.K.S Iyengar to anyone who comes in our doors no matter their situation. Take a look at our community pay what you can schedule where we offer 3 community classes per week. We also offer a free public philosophy talk each month that is open to anyone who would like to attend. There are also work-study and scholarship opportunities for access to public classes and workshops.
