Full Description

The Iyengar Method frequently incorporates the use of a chair as an effective yoga tool to deepen and enhance the experience and practice of all types of yoga poses. Iyengar yoga practitioners use these chairs in all sorts of poses ranging from simple seated twists, to standing poses, to supported inversions and backbends. Iyengar introduced props into the modern practice of yoga to allow all practitioners access to the benefits of the postures regardless of physical condition. Props help all practitioners (including the most advanced) gain sensitivity to the correct use of effort and receive the deep benefits of postures held over significant time periods. Props encourage students, bolster confidence, and create optimal body alignment. This workshop was inspired by Senior Iyengar Instructor, Eyal Shifroni’s book: A Chair for Yoga: A complete Guide to Iyengar Yoga Practice with a Chair.
