➒ It’s All About Proper Alignment and Form
Iyengar Yoga

The Deal:

Why We Love It:

  • Level I is a great class for those who are new to Iyengar yoga, a practice based on the teachings of the 91-year-old yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar, author of the classic yoga treatise Light on Yoga.
  • The airy, modern studio has large changing rooms and provides all necessary equipment, and there’s also a studio in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The class (and Iyengar Yoga in general) incorporates a lot of props —more advanced Iyengar classes may even involve suspension from ropes.
  • We love that they use props to adjust the posture to your own body type. It’s so amazing and intelligent. with practice, you will learn and eventually become more aware of your own body even outside of the studio.
