Eyal Shifroni is a senior level Iyengar teacher who has been teaching since 1985. He is based in Israel and teaches workshops across the world.
Eyal first published 'A Chair for Yoga' and he has since published three volumes of 'Props for Yoga'.
In a recent blog published on his website he wrote.
'Alignment and ‘Iyengar Yoga’ are quite synonyms. Alignment is probably the most characterizing hallmark of Iyengar Yoga. The principle of Alignment is closely related to principles like: balance, symmetry, precision and harmony – all are fundamental principles in yoga practice.'
We are very pleased to have the opportunity to study the inter-relation of these two strong themes of Iyengar yoga with Eyal - alignment and props.
He will be running two sessions at IYISL.
