The Iyengar Institute of Yoga, established in the year 1975 was built for physical, mental and spiritual uplifting by one of the pioneers of Yoga, BK Iyengar popularly known as 'Guruji'. The moment you step into the institute, you feel relaxed by the tranquil surroundings The beautiful lush garden imparts freshness and serenity. The idol of Patanjali dominates the entrance of the main hall as also the statue of Guruji in the pose of Nataraja. An idol of Lord Hanuman can be seen at the apex of the building portraying wisdom, strength, vital energy, devotion and humility. Suffused with symbolism, the height of the structure is 71(7+1=8) feet representing the vertical growth of the eight limbs of Yoga. It also represents the eight letter (ashtakshari). The institute has eight steps leading up to its main entrance symbolising Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali. Eight beams radiate from the main column representing the sun and the planets of the zodiac. The eight columns represent the eight-fold path of Yoga as enunciated by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The main column represents the spinal cord.

More like a medical school than an institute, the classes here are grouped into various categories where students can enrol themselves. The various categories can be listed as the beginners', the general category, the advanced learners', the women's category and the children's. The institute conducts intensive training programmes in Yoga-vidya for teachers as well as for students. Its library has one of the best collection of books on Yoga, along with numerous books on a variety of topics like philosophy, medicine and arts. Books and newsletters are published regularly. A very innovative aspect of Iyengar Yoga is its use of props for beginners and patients who cannot perform the poses independently. With over 180 branches all over the country, the institute continues relentlessly in its quest serving as a Temple of Yoga and a pilgrimage centre for seekers of Yoga.
