Iyengar Yoga offers many tools and solutions for relieving chronic pain and health issues. If you have a health problem that you seek to manage naturally, one-on-one yoga with a qualified and experienced teacher can be especially beneficial.

For your private yoga session, your teacher will a create customized practice sequence, skillfully use props in simple to elaborate setups (to allow holding each pose to be comfortable), and provide helpful hands-on assistance as needed (with your consent only).

Some of the areas Iyengar Yoga can help with are:

  • Musculoskeletal: Joint problems of the knee, hip, ankle, wrist, and neck/shoulders. Back problems including scoliosis, spinal fusion, lower back pain, slipped disc, and sciatica.

  • Digestive: constipation, acid reflux, and IBS.

The pains which are yet to come can be and are to be avoided.
— Patanjali Yoga Sutra II.16, B.K.S. Iyengar's translation
Physical health is not a commodity to be bargained for. Nor can it be swallowed in the form of drugs and pills — it has to be earned through sweat. It is something that we must build up.
— B.K.S. Iyengar
