Iyengar Yoga Encinitas

A Source Of Excellence in Yoga Learning


Yoga teaches to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.
— B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is for all, regardless of age or ailment. Iyengar Yoga Encintas is one of the select few Iyengar Centers in the country to provide an Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics Class. Yoga Therapeutics is for those who require specific guidance in practice in order to address an issue, and/or for those who cannot follow regular classes. Target sequences are offered to help individual needs. Commonly there are 3 phases of the Yoga Therapeutics process:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Recuperation
  • Re-education

Next follows re-entry into your practice and regular public class, along with the empowerment of the knowledge you gained in the therapeutic process. 

Pre-registration and a commitment to a "4 class series" is required.  No Drop-ins please.  Most cases will also require a private session/assessment prior to beginning Yoga Therapeutics. Call the Yoga Center for an appointment.  Therapeutics class meets Thursdays at 4pm.

The following are articles and research published about yoga therapeutics in resolving health issues for adults and seniors:
