Welcome to Cambridge Iyengar yoga Institute
What is Iyengar Yoga?
Profound, intelligent and transformative, Iyengar Yoga is a complete approach to life that provides practical tools to create and maintain bodily health and vitality, mental clarity, emotional serenity, and spiritual well-being.
Developed by yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar during his more than 75 years of teaching, Iyengar Yoga is grounded in the ancient Indian tradition and philosophy of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
Our classes are taught by rigorously-trained, dedicated teachers who focus on strength and stamina, flexibility and balance, concentration and meditation. We offer a full slate of daily classes, workshops, special series, guest teacher and community events, and teacher training and continuing education for teachers.
