Iyengar Yoga Amsterdam Centre

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga is an active, “powerful” form of Hatha Yoga, focusing on accuracy, safety and aligning the body within each posture for a well balanced and strong body.

The lessons

A challenging, inspiring and varied curriculum with a balance between action and relaxation. After a yoga class, you will feel good, cheerful, and energetic. The classes are taught in Dutch and English. We offer various types of lessons and services: Beginners, advanced and people over age 50, healing lessons, morning, lunchtime, and evening classes, medical advice and private lessons.


The studio is equipped with many props and tools (mats, belts, ropes, blocks, and bolsters) so that all postures are open to everyone. This is possible through individual attention from the instructor.


The Iyengar Yoga classes are taught by certified teachers, guaranteeing integrity and quality. Iyengar Yoga is recommended by the physiotherapists at ProFysio.

Our beautiful studio is filled with natural daylight, lit by large windows on the canal in the heart of Amsterdam.

Iyengar Yoga is recommended by ProFysio physiotherapists

Recommended by the ProFysio physiotherapists, Iyengar Yoga improves posture, organs, blood circulation and nervous system. It provides protection, healing and improves health. Iyengar Yoga is a safe and effective choice to relieve work related injuries. You will learn to use muscles and to stretch to achieve a deep and healthy effect on the joints in your body. This is done by standing and sitting exercises, forward and backwards bends, reverse and turned postures as well as balancing exercises. The exercises work deep into each body part. Iyengar Yoga focuses the mind on different parts of the body for a structural balance. This study method is steadfast, reliable and progressive. The postures are corrected according to the physical condition and needs of the learner. The teachers of the Iyengar Yoga Darsana-program are knowledgeable about anatomy and health. At ProFysio we strongly believe that combining our treatments with the practice of Iyengar Yoga opens up new possibilities for the rehabilitation of injuries and improves overall health.
