Iyengar Yoga Massage Condesa
Iyengar Yoga is a purist style of yoga developed by and named after B.K.S Iyengar in the 1960s. Iyengar Yoga is a very meticulous style of yoga, placing the emphasis on precision and alignment. The practice is all about the details of your breath control (pranayama) and posture (asana) and is excellent for building strength and flexibility. Iyengar yoga is great for learning the subtleties of correct alignment for all ages and abilities.
Like all forms of yoga, Iyengar yoga combines physical poses, deep breathing, and meditation. A unique feature of Iyengar yoga is the use of props (such as blocks, pillows, chairs, straps, and bolsters), which provide support and help students balance, stretch, and attain perfect alignment in each pose.
Iyengar yoga also involves performing poses in a specific sequence in order to maximize their beneficial effects. The poses can be standing, seated, or lying and may involve bends, twists, or inversions.
Research suggests that practicing Iyengar yoga may yield specific health benefits. Iyengar targeted multiple ailments and disorders. High blood pressure, depression, chronic neck and back pain, and immunodeficiency are just some conditions that he aimed to heal with his practice.
With regular guided practice, effects can include a general feeling of physical health and psychological and mental well-being.
As with many types of yoga, limberness is one of the major pluses. One of the great appeals with it is that you don’t need to be super stretchy before you can join in as its structure, based on gradual development, means that you can go at an easy pace that suits you while simultaneously gaining major improvements to your flexibility.
Thanks to the benefits of each asana (pose) and the ability of Yoga Massage Therapy to tailor poses to each individual's needs, the combination of massage therapy with Iyengar yoga can provide therapeutic benefits to tight, unstable or injured areas.
