Welcome to the official website of the Belgian Iyengar Yoga Association (BIYAB non profit).
Our first and foremost goal is to make known, spread and extensively promote the teaching of B.K.S. Iyengar and his family.
Whether you are a beginner student of yoga, an experienced practitioner, a teacher or simply curious and wanting to know more, this website aims at providing information about the specificities of the yoga practice developed by B.K.S. Iyengar and how this practice is organised in Belgium.
The Association makes sure in particular that the principles and quality of teaching Iyengar Yoga in Belgium is well preserved. All the names of the Iyengar-certified teachers, as well as the classes and workshops they organise, are available through this website.
The Association equally organises on an annual basis specific events of national relevance, targeting either teachers or members at large.
Dédicated with love and respect to Sri BKS Iyengar.

Feed_back on the Teachers Convention in November 2019 in Brussels with Firooza Ali Razvi
“Any yoga iteacher that lacks a deep understanding of breath is not teaching at all!
The arms and the legs are organs of action. They are your supports for your practices. To focus too much on them is like constantly shining your vehicle and inflating tires without maintaining the engine!
It is the responsibility of a yoga teacher to see that what is taught leads to a more noble state of mind and not just a fit body.
There are more people suffering in this world today because of the mind rather than the body. So I like to explore how yoga practices transform states of mind or rather consciousness. “

In 2019 we were delighted to welcome Uday Bhosale who has led the 2019 Belgian National Iyengar Convention which took place in Gent. The first 2 days (May 30-31) were dedicated to teachers only (or practitioners with 5 years practice ) but June 1-2 were opened to all members of the BIYAB association.
You will find below the link to the photos of this convention as well as here a summary of these four days.
