Vocabulary of asana instructions (detailed): body parts – part 2 of 3 (FREE Resource)
This is a primer video for beginners or for those coming to Iyengar yoga from other traditions. Iyengar yoga is often recognised by the very detailed instructions in asanas. but this detailing is not just for the sake of reproducing perfect-looking asanas. It is to direct the attention of the mind ot specific parts of the body, and thereby to learn to channel our efforts. We use commonly-understood English words and phrases to describe these areas on our own bodies, and usually an instructor will also point out these areas on their own/ other students' bodies to ensure clarity. This set of 3 recordings was especially done for some of our students who are not very comfortable with the English language. It might also be useful for those not used to our Indian accent.
