Default emacs: searching only for a variable


If I search for a text in emacs (CTRL+s), it matches all occurrences of
the search text. For example, I am trying to search a variable "i" in a
large block of code. How do I tell emacs to hit only that variable and
not for every 'i' that may occur in the file? I have tried regexp search
(SHIFT+CTRL+s for '[^a-z]i[^a-z$]'). It sort of works but perhaps there
is a shorter and faster way.
