USING PROPS FOR EXPANDING AWARENESS IN ASANA PRACTICE
The workshop is dedicated for people practising yoga for at least 2 years (ability to do Sirsasana and Salamba Sarvangasana is
required) and for advanced students, yoga teachers and people during teachers course.
Eyal Shifroni accepted Marek's Bednarski iviting and for the third time will run a workshop in Fabryka Energii Yoga Center in Wrocław. His last workshops in Poland took place in 2017 and in 2019. The second Eyal's visit coincided with publishing of polisth version of Eyal's book: „Chair for Yoga”
„There's no doubt that props are important characteristic of Iyangar Yoga, but they should not be confused with its essence. Props are means for acheving an end – such as alignment, stability, precision, and prolonged stays in asanas. Practicioners should be careful not to develop dependency on props; rather, props should be employed intelligently in pursuit of a mature and mindful practice of asanas.” - Eyal Shifroni
Iyengar Yoga is known for its precision and attention to detail in asana implementation. Proved as a powerful method for achieving wellness and creating positive mental change, enables greater peace, concentration and joy. Using props in Iyengar Yoga helps us to do advanced asana and let us stay longer in them. It also creates more space for expanding awareness in our practice. Props for yoga let us see different faces of yoga. Once we use props to open chest the other time to open hips. One position has a lot to offer. When we practice for a long time, we sometimes think, that we know about yoga everything and there's nothing more we can learn. It's a mistake. Eyal shows us new ways of using props, many of which we have never seen before. The usage of props is intended to direct awareness to different aspects of the asanas as well as different parts of the body in order to deepen and enhance the understanding of them.
Attantion: we want to keep the dynamism of Eyal's teaching, that's why the workshop would be in english (not translated to polish) which will help us to feel his message deeper.
