The Iyengar Yoga Institutes of New York and Brooklyn were named the best yoga studios in New York City by TimeOut New York.
In our upcoming Kids Yoga Series, taught by Naghmeh Ahi and Michelle LaRue, children ages 7 to 12 will explore yoga postures from the most basic to the most challenging in a joyful, fun, supportive environment.
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.
The first in a year-long series of celebrations of the centenary of the birth of B.K.S. Iyengar took place Dec. 17-22 in Pune, when thousands of practitioners gathered for an intensive taught by Guruji’s son, Prashant S. Iyengar. Senior Teacher James Murphy shares his observations from the experience.

LEVEL THREE intensifies the standing poses, twists, forward bends, and back bends, and students hold inversions for longer periods. Not just about doing difficult poses or physical tricks, this stage incorporates a profound intelligence and transformative method integrating the body with the mind, senses, and breath to create equanimity
LEVEL TWO builds upon the standing poses and adds more revolved poses and twists, forward bends, inversions, and the beginnings of back bends. Students also begin learning seated pranayama.
“A regular Iyengar practice will certainly ensure proper alignment, but bet you never thought you could learn to smile too!”
