A LITTLE DELRAY BEACH HISTORY
iYoga Delray Beach, formerly known as Yoga Sol, has been an established Iyengar yoga studio, owned by Colleen Gallagher in Delray Beach since 2001. Previously, Colleen established The Yoga Room which resided above the Starbucks on Atlantic Avenue at Federal Highway from 1993-1999.
Colleen Gallagher was the first Iyengar instructor in Palm Beach County and has mentored numerous teachers in the process of becoming certified Iyengar yoga instructors in Florida and throughout the country.
Iyengar Yoga is based on the teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar, yoga master and the author of the classic yoga treatise, “Light on Yoga”. His dedicated personal practice and over 65 years of teaching have produced significant innovations in the teaching of yoga. These innovations have now become established and known as Iyengar Yoga.
On August 20, 2014, a New York Times article credited him with bringing yoga to the western world and making it accessible to every age and walk of life.
The use of props and attention to the individual’s needs is an important innovation of Iyengar yoga. At iYoga Delray Beach, this means that you will be introduced to a safe, systematic progression of yoga postures that will develop your abilities.
New students are introduced to standing poses first to develop strength, concentration, and body alignment and than proceed to more complex poses.
iYoga Delray Beach is fully equipped with mats, blocks, straps, and other props to help meet individual needs. This allows students to find ease and health in poses that might otherwise be inaccessible.
