National Iyengar Yoga Convention on the 10th (teachers), 11th & 12th (for all) with guest teacher Gulnaz Dashti , in Oostduinkerke. 

Our special guest on 1-2 June is Chiara Travisi

Willy Bok and Rita Poelvoorde opened this centre in July 2017 in Ixelles in a back house located near Place Flagey. The center had been inaugurated in Etterbeek in 2008. Eight certified teachers have now joined them. The classes are given in two rooms with the props at the students’ disposal.

 

The yoga method which  follows the teachings of Mr. BKS Iyengar (deceased 20.08.2014), an Indian yoga master living in Pune, India, where his daughter Geeta taught until her demise on 16.12.2018 and where his son Prashant and grand daughter Abhijata Sridhar teach in the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute.

Mr. BKS Iyengar has reinforced the alignment in the postures, developed the intensity and duration of each posture as well as the art of sequencing to enhance the benefits on the physical, physiological, nervous, mental and spiritual components of health. In order to practice the postures (asanas) with proper alignment and safely, props such as blankets, wood blocks, belts, ropes, chairs, benches, suspensions … are used and put at the students’ disposal.

The method is systematic and progressive: it aims to first reinforce the student’s self confidence. The practitioner rediscovers his own body potential while limbering his joints and toning his muscles. The digestive, urogenital, respiratory, cardiac, nervous and hormonal systems are irrigated. The class closes with a deep relaxation; the student is freshened and revivified, ready to face the ups and downs of daily life.
