The goal of this workshop is to guide students to experience Sthirta (the stability of the body and mind) and Sukha (the serenity of the mind and intellect), which are the very essence and purpose of practicing yoga and the asanas. This workshop also aims to educate all practitioners on how one can practice to overcome various individual challenges relating to their body structure and occupation.
In this series of workshops, Bhanu’s teachings will focus on the usage of various essential Iyengar Yoga props such as belts and straps, blankets, yoga chairs, and blocks to bring about a holistic approach to practicing yoga to harmonise the body, mind, and soul. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of how using such props can help elevate their practice to gain even greater benefits from practicing yoga.
Guru Ji (B.K.S. Iyengar) once said that practicing yoga asanas without props is an egoistic (Rajasic) approach and using it transforms you to be humble (Sattvic). They are vehicles that allow you to deepen your awareness into a comprehensive understanding that can greatly elevate your practice.
The workshop will cover:
– Standing poses for stability
– Stretching to strengthen the back and spine
– Twists for shoulder strengthening
– Forward bends to relax the mind
– Backward extensions to stabilise the hips and pelvis
– Inversions to quieten and calm the brain
On each day and in each session, Bhanu will touch on different topics and might revisit content covered in the previous session where relevant. It is encouraged for students to enrol in the full programme to better appreciate how the practice can benefit them.
