“Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul creates the symphony of life.”
Why do we use props in Iyengar Yoga? “…These props help [students of yoga] in monitoring and directing the right way to do the asana.”
“ Thank you so much for the bursary to attend the workshop. It was a big step for me. As the youngest and least experienced person there, I felt very privileged as well as challenged to my very core! I was deeply affected by the experience, and I’m looking forward to exploring it more in the coming days, weeks and months. You are all such a lovely group of people and I feel very lucky to be learning yoga with you!” – BG”
“It was really helpful to be around students of varying levels because everyone had their own unique strengths and weaknesses. I realized that yoga is not a competition and I don’t have to be the best at practicing all the poses or the most flexible person in the room to “succeed” at yoga.”
“Right before class began, I walked in and set up my mat then left to use the rest room. When I returned a fellow student was placing and folding blankets by my mat for me. This resonated with me because the practice of yoga is not only focused on yourself as an individual but also how we can practice together and find a sense of community.”
When stability becomes a habit, maturity and clarity follow.
