Yoga is an art, science, philosophy & a way of life. Its origins are ancient and go back to India, 3000 years ago. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root YUJ, meaning to bring together, to combine, to join, to yoke or to unite. In another context yoga can be interpreted as “to use” or “to apply” and can also be translated as unity. Therefore yoga can be defined as a practice that in essence is meant to bring to connection, communion and union – between one and himself, between one and the world and between one and the highest, deepest aspects of existence. Yoga is a way to gather and recruit all our internal resources in aim of achieving internal and universal unity. Yoga is a system of physical practice that emphasizes the balance between flexibility, strength, endurance and coordination, out of complete involvement of the mind in the practice. Through a deep investigation of the actions that take place in the physical postures we learn how to enhance the connection between body & mind, as well as to improve the range & quality of movement, concentration and mental calmness.

iyengar yoga

Iyengar Yoga is named after Sri Yogācārya B.K.S Iyengar and offers a contemporary interpretation to the classical yoga that developed in India over thousands of years. The approach emphasizes an in-depth technical study of āsana – yogic postures – out of the understanding that the body is our first and most accessible tool of self-realization and transformation. Iyengar’s approach comes from the understanding that āsana practice holds within it all the aspects of philosophy, art and science of yoga, thus enabling them to integrate in one’s life in a whole and harmonic manner. The system emphasizes the correct location and positioning of limbs and organs in the posture in order to allow physical actions to penetrate deep into the organism, sequence of learning & practicing the āsana to allow safe progress, gradually increasing duration of time spent in each āsana and high levels of awareness to the details that form the āsana – physical, mental and emotional.

B.K.S Iyengar

Bellur Krishnamacar Sundararaja Iyengar 14.12.1918 – 20.8.2014

was a prominent teacher who practiced, studied and developed the field of yoga over more than 80 years from his residence in Pune, India. After studying with his Guru, T. Krishnamācarya, Iyengar turned to deepen and refine his understanding out of direct experience in daily practice that were an inseparable part of his life until his passing. He wrote dozens of books on yoga, taught and demonstrated for decades worldwide, developed props that made yoga accessible to any person of every age and in any physical condition, so that they can benefit from the healing powers of yoga practice. Guruji’s work contributed to the international spreading of yoga, without compromising its quality or diluting the rich heritage it relies on. Today, Guruji’s system continues to live and develop thanks to his children Geeta S. Iyengar and Prashant S. Iyengar, renowned teachers in their own right, his granddaughter Abhijata and the hundreds of teachers he has trained over the years.

The river Ganga (also known in English as The Ganges) has flown over 2,500 km for thousands of years, from its origin in the west Himalayas down to the Bengal Bay area. In addition to it being a source of life energy to millions of human and non-human sentient beings, in the Hindu tradition it is also known to be a bridge that connects the spiritual realm of the Gods with the physical realm of our world, as well as a bridge between the time of the ancestors and our time. The waters of the Ganga are considered to be the very embodiment of vitality and life-force on earth. Indian mythology tells the tale of the cosmic river Viṣṇupadī (‘of Visnu’s feet’), that flowed in an endless circle around the cosmic egg from which creation hatched. Lord Vishnu stubbed his toe against the corner of heaven's vault and cracked it; from the crack the waters leaked out of the heavens across the skies and created the milky way. Once the waters arrived at the moon, they poured down to the Himalayas. In another story, the waters of Ganga were pulled to earth by the austerities and ascetic practices of the old sages. The force of the flow threatened to destroy the earth, which was saved by Lord Shiva's grace, who stopped the stream with his matted locks, and directed the water’s flow for the sake of all earth-beings. Ganga is considered to be the tangible expression of life-giving energy, power, movement and transformation that characterize creation. These stories allow us to reflect on the role and place of Yoga in our lives. Yoga practice can deepen our sense of connection and infiltration with all dimensions of being. Yoga is a living, breathing vital force that enables us to cultivate sensitivity, clarity and strength - both within us, as well as in relation to the world we live in.


The word Sangha means “community” or “coming together”. Other then being a physical practice, yoga is all-life embracing. Out of recognition in the value and support of a community, we are happy to host cultural events that are connected to health, wellbeing, growth and development. We invite the practitioner-community to approach us with suggestions for meetings of this sort (lectures on philosophy, science, nutrition, poetry readings, musical performances or other arts & cultural events) and stay updated about upcoming events at the studio.
