Iyengar Yoga is a complete system of classic hatha yoga with the focus on the structural alignment of the physical body through the practice of postures, also incorporating the practice of Ashtanga yoga (the eight principles, or limbs of yoga). It can differ from other styles of yoga in three ways: the focus on precision, sequence of postures and the occasional use of props.
BKS Iyengar pioneered the use of yoga props and equipment to help enable his students who were physically unable to achieve the various classic asanas (yoga postures) and help his students find means to achieve the health benefits given by the postures
About Bonar and Yogasarvasya
Bonar is a Certified Level 3 Iyengar Yoga Teacher. He first began to practice and study yoga over thirty years ago. Drawn to the physical and psychological benefits of yoga, his commitment to daily practice and exploration into yogic philosophy inspired him to become a yoga teacher. After qualifying as an Iyengar Yoga teacher in 2002, Bonar spent time in Pune, India, studying at the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute with the Iyengar family.
In August 2006, Bonar opened Yogasarvasya Studio in the West End of Glasgow and continued teaching there regularly for fifteen years. Yogasarvasya Studio offered classes taught by qualified Iyengar Yoga teachers for students with all levels of experience. Yoga workshops and other events were also available at the studio, often taught by respected and esteemed international senior Iyengar Yoga teachers. More recently Bonar has been teaching classes online and is now looking forward to teaching regular live classes, workshops and ‘One 2 One’ personal tuition again at The Movement Studio in the Westend of Glasgow. Bonar has also taught yoga weekend workshops in Scotland and Ireland and has also organised and taught yoga holidays in the South of Spain.
