April Philosophy: Brahmacharya

This month we are continuing our celebration of B.K.S. Iyengar's Centennial with a new IYAGNY Philosophy Highlight.

This April, the theme is Brahmacharya or Continence. Patanjali defines Brahmacharya in Yoga Sutra II.38. In the translation found in Patanjala Yoga Sutra Paricaya, B.K.S. Iyengar writes: "Upon the establishment of chastity or self-control, knowledge, vigour, power and energy are attained, retained and maintained.”

In the video below, Nikki Costello, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and Faculty Member at the Iyengar Yoga Institutes of New York and Brooklyn, reflects on Brahmacharya.

March Philosophy: Asteya

2018 marks B.K.S. Iyengar's Centennial. We continue our celebration through our monthly philosophical insights. The theme for March is Asteya or Non-Stealing.

In Light on Life Guruji writes: "Non-stealing, or not misappropriating what rightly belongs to others (asteya), is the third Yama. As children, we learn not to take or steal other toys, but non-stealing has many implications. Do we not steal when we consume more than our share? Is it not stealing that a small portion of the world's population consumes the vast majority of its resources?"

In the video below, Tori Milner, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and Faculty Member at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York and Brooklyn, reflects on Asteya.

Why Study Iyengar Yoga?

B.K.S Iyengar was taught yoga in his youth by his brother-in-law, T. Krishnamacharya. B.K.S. Iyengar developed his innovative and inspired approach to yoga through intense practice and self-study. His seminal book, Light on Yoga, has been continuously in print since originally published in 1966. According to Mr. Iyengar, "The yoga I teach is purely Astanga yoga, known as the eight limbs of yoga. My pupils who follow me call it ‘Iyengar Yoga’ to distinguish it from the teachings of others." Iyengar Yoga is differentiated from other methods by a world-wide, standardized system of instruction. Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers (CIYTs) undergo rigorous training and evaluation to earn their certifications. Only CIYTs are permitted to describe their method of instruction as "Iyengar Yoga." CIYTs are trained to provide clear demonstrations of each posture and are skilled in the use of simple props to maximize the opening and awareness of the body, providing support to the less flexible, and extra extension to the more advanced student.

Teaching is oriented towards gradual but steady progress, rather than quick and fleeting results. Each Iyengar Yoga class is a unique sequence developed by the CIYT to guide students through a safe and systematic progression. Through skilled instruction and practice, students learn to penetrate beyond the physical body to the inner kosas (layers) of mind, energy and spirit, gaining vitality, clarity and calm through the practice.

Iyengar Yoga is a powerful and sophisticated discipline which can be practiced in all stages of life. The benefits are far-reaching and will assist the practitioner in every aspect of daily living.

Learn more about Iyengar Yoga by attending any of the Gentle, Level 1, or Level 2 classes at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York and Brooklyn.
