Welcome to the Iyengar Yoga Center Of Ojai
In this serene and beautiful valley of Ojai there is no better place to practice and learn this ancient science, art, and philosophy of Yoga as it is taught by the lineage of the legendary B.K.S IYENGAR.
Everyone can do Yoga, from young to old, men, women or children, diseased or disabled remembering that each one of us is special, different, and unique. There are no blue prints in nature (prakriti) and so the yogic poses (asanas) have to be learned to fit each individual need. Yoga teaches us to find the potential energy that is hidden inside the body and how to bring it to the surface in order to utilize it properly. We invite you to join our classes and experience the benefits of this ancient art.
Invocation to sage Patanjali on B.K.S Iyengar 92nd birth anniversary in Pune, INDIA
(The video was filmed by Etahl)
Yogena cittasya padena vacam
malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena
yopakarottam pravaram muninam
sankha cakrasi dharinam
sahasra sirasam svetam
"To the noblest of sage, Patanjali,
Who Gave Yoga for serenity of mind,
Grammar for purity of speech,
And medicine for the health of the body, I bow.
I prostrate before Patanjali,
Whose upper body has a human form,
Whose arms hold a counch and disk,
Who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra,
O incarnation of Adisesa, My
salutation to thee
