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.
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.
An ASANA named IYENGARASANA
The Iyengar Comunity wishes to name an asana after Yogāchārya BKS Iyengar, which would be an opportunity to pay a wonderful tribute to the legacy left by Guruji on the centenary of his birth on December 14, 2018.
A recognition of his immense contribution to the universe of yoga!
We are confident that the introduction of Iyengarasana into practice will, over time, incorporate this asana into the Classical Tradition of Yoga, and Iyengarasana will be the eternal witness of BKS Iyengar’s teaching.
Whenever Iyengarasana is practiced, it will be a living tribute to one of the greatest yoga masters of the 21st century.
THANK YOU GEETA!
It is with the greatest sorrow that we let you know that Geeta S Iyengar, daughter of BKS Iyengar passed away this morning 16 december in her home in Pune, India. Shall her profound teachings stay with us for a long time.
“Yoga is not about being in a race with other people. It is,up to facing yourself. That is the hard thing.” Geeta Iyengar
