Iyengar Yoga for All BodiesVIEW EVENT DETAILS
International Day of Yoga 2017
Lecture Location: Miller Theatre
Online registration will close at 6 pm on June 17, 2017. Walk-ins on the day are welcome and subject to availability.
B. K. S. Iyengar has presented Yoga for all bodies — young, old, healthy, sick, injured, flexible and stiff. Not only does Iyengar Yoga cater for all types of physical bodies, it also offers ways of practicing Yoga for the differences in the subtle bodies (mental and emotional bodies). As people are of a different mental and emotional makeup, B. K. S. Iyengar has expertly prescribed Yoga taking into account these differences. This session will demonstrate how Yoga can truly be practiced by everyone.
