BKS Iyengar on Stability —the Physical Body:
“We begin at the level of the physical body, the aspect of ourselves that is most concrete and accessible to all of us. It is here that yogasana practice and pranayama practice allow us to understand our body with ever greater insight and through the body to understand our mind and reach our soul. To a yogi, the body is a laboratory for life, a field of experimentation and perpetual research.“ ~~BKS Iyengar, “Light on Life”, p. 22,
In the Iyengar Yoga method, we begin with learning grounding standing poses as they help us learn to safely align our musculoskeletal body and correct how we walk, stand and move on our two feet.
