Practice Sequences

Immune Sequence

This sequence, designed to support the immune system, was distributed to students at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India, when it was closed due to an outbreak of a virulent flu.

Emotional Stability

This sequence, which appears in B.K.S. Iyengar’s popular book Light on Life, offers a series of asana that calms the mind and cools the brain, balances the intellectual and emotional centers, stimulates positive thinking, and brings about inner silence.
