to be a very individual question/answer.

Iyengar yoga can work as a therapeutic system,
a fitness program, and also as a spiritual springboard.
Asana can be everything one takes from it,
or the least of what one takes from it.
Really, it is difficult to isolate asana
from 'the rest', as the mind and breath
are integral to the body in the performance
of asana. In a pragmatic sense, one does not
perform asana effortlessly until one has mastered
the mind and breath to a degree. Iyengar yoga is one
style of hatha yoga, and as such, includes all that
hatha yoga includes, as well as all of its limits.
