Iyengar yoga was developed by BKS Iyengar (1918-2014). His method emphasises precision and alignment in the asana (poses).
Simple props, such as blocks, belts and bolsters are used to maximise the openings and build awareness of the body. Props provide support to the less flexible, and extra extension to the more advanced student.
The teacher, Kathleen Powell is a certified Iyengar yoga instructor. She has been practicing Iyengar yoga for more than 20 years, and teaching at studios around Auckland since 2007.
At Yoga Phala class sizes are small (maximum of 6 students per class) offering students personal attention and instruction appropriate to his or her ability and experience.
