About Our School

How we become 1st Iyengar Yogashala In Malaysia

BKS Iyengar Yogashala is a typical Iyengar yoga school that emphasizes the art, science and philosophy of yoga according to the teachings of Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar. It is designed to be an encouraging environment for students to learn and discover the essence of yoga practice. ~

The centre is headed by Nandakumar, a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher who has been studying with the Iyengar family from the early 1990’s.

Why Us?

With the yoga culture spreading rapidly and taking on many new forms, the centre provides a place where people could come to learn in a way that echoes the tradition of yoga. It is well equipped with yoga props to support a diverse student base to help them learn beyond self-limiting tendencies.


Different from a fitness centre, we aim to provide lifelong learning and experiential knowledge to our yoga practitioners through continuous support system from our ever growing Iyengar Yoga community and high profiled Certified Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers from the region.


We open daily, even on public holidays. The classes offered are varied and appeal to a wide range of students’ needs.

What’s the numbers

Modern yoga consists of a range of techniques including asanas (postures) and meditation derived from some of the philosophies, teachings and practices of the Yoga school, which is one of the six schools of traditional Hindu

  • I live in the USA but spend about 4-6 months a year in Kuala Lumpur. I have been going to practice at BKS Iyengaryoga for the past 5 years while I am in KL. I not only enjoy and gain considerable understanding from the guidance that the instructors provide at each practice session, but as importantly, the very pleasant community that is part of BKS Iyengar. Have yet to find a similar studio in the USA that is as engaging.

  • Yogashala is centrally located in Klang Valley, has ample parking spaces. Wonderful light-filled studio, very clean and well-ventilated classrooms with high ceilings. It really gives you peace of mind when you first walk in. All props and mats are provided. Shower facilities provided. They have Iyengar yoga classes for all levels from yoga beginners to advanced, including children’s and pregnancy yoga classes. Best place to learn yoga safely under the guidance of experienced and well-qualified Iyengar Yoga teachers. I would recommend this for anyone looking to unwind, strengthen, lengthen and learn.
