ABOUT IYENGAR YOGA

Iyengar Yoga is a holistic experience that benefits the body, mind and emotions. It is a form of Hatha yoga developed by renowned Yoga Master B.K.S. Iyengar.

While the practice is intense, poses are adapted with the use of props, so that everyone can manage to their ability. Even for students in a class of varying levels, the same pose can be done in a way that everyone can experience it to some degree, and everyone can be challenged.

Asanas or yogic poses are often held for longer in Iyengar Yoga than in many other forms of yoga. This allows the student to learn the posture with conscious awareness to correct alignment and to be able to go deeper into the pose. When doing postures fast the outer layers of the body are worked. When holding asanas for longer, it is not just the outer body that is reached but the inner body as well, especially where it concerns improving the health of the inner organs. Addressing the nervous system is also an important aspect of Iyengar yoga.

One of the many benefits of being so conscious of doing the pose correctly is that it keeps the mind engaged in the present moment, by anchoring it to the body and breath. So, while there is intense focus during a class, it is all about the here and now. This creates a kind of meditation in action and the mind is refreshed by having a break from constantly moving into the past and future.

Physically there is a balance in creating both strength and flexibility, and through improved alignment there is an increased flow of energy. Many of the asanas are physically and mentally challenging and yet one still learns to relax at the same time. This means that yoga is not about finding calm and balance in a perfectly calm and balanced situation but instead teaches the student to stay centred and calm in challenging situations. In time the aim is to take what you have learnt on the mat and apply that emotional balance into the rest of your life.

Dize, 1st October 2020:

"I started this initiative in November last year, excited that it was something practical that will have both a positive social and environmental impact. At first the idea was to provide school going girls with the menstrual cups.
The project has now evolved to providing as many women as possible from low to no income homes with the cups.
On or close to the full moon, I lead a class where the proceeds go to the initiative.
“My own cup”, a menstrual cup manufacturer in South Africa is supporting this cause allowing the initiative to purchase cups at their special project price. As we get money in, we continue to purchase more cups. So this is an ongoing project to reach more and more women over time.
At the beginning of the year together with "Yoga 4 Alex" we did a workshop with a wonderful group of young people and handed out our first lot of menstrual cups. The feedback has been very positive, with most girls using them and those who didn’t giving to a friend or family member who is using it.
This month I handed out to Anna and Dorcus from Limpopo who are taking it to the community around the Waterberg area where they believe many women will greatly benefit. They also told me that around the locations there are often dirty sanitary towels around the streets, whether from dogs pulling them out of rubbish heaps or women not having the ability to properly dispose of them. They are excited at the idea that if we get enough women using the cups this will not be such an issue anymore.
For now this project is based in South Africa, but who knows how it may grow in the future!
