Iyengar Yoga Workshop
Iyengar Yoga - First Impressions
Join us in this challenging workshop, where you will be introduced to one of the most profound and influential approaches to yoga āsana. BKS Iyengar revolutionised the way students practice āsana by establishing an optimal alignment framework and by implementing a great variety of props to support this.
In this workshop, you will be taken through a classical sequence of intensive āsana practice in the first part and restorative āsana and prānāyāma in the second part on each day.
On Saturday, a comprehensive introduction to standing āsanas will prove that we can progress no further if the base is not stable. Standing āsanas, when practiced thoroughly, reveal the whole gamut of āsana. But what about the overall health of the practitioner? The other pillar of Iyengar Yoga is inversions. Inversions take care of the hormonal system of the body as well as our emotional and psychological states. Learn how to utilise inversions for perfect health in the entire human system. The second part will deeply restore us, as we give in to gravity and carefully placed props as per Guruji’s instructions.
On Sunday, backbending will be dealt with in a new light. To safely learn how to use one’s legs to support the spine, work each part of the spine differently and therefore go deeper, is a skill developed highly in Iyengar Yoga. Again we will restore in the afternoon, going full circle on our efforts.
