How to Sync the Practice with the Aging Process

Eyal Shifroni

"In my view, the essence of the practice actually should not change with the aging process. The practice always remains: I apply myself (tapas), I study myself (Svadhyaya), I surrender myself (Ishvara Pranidhana).”

How to Sync the Practice with the Aging Process

Eyal Shifroni is a Senior level Iyengar Yoga teacher from Israel. He has studied and practiced yoga since 1978, and has thought, written, and taught yoga since 1985. Eyal is the author of six books on Yoga and known for his creative teaching and innovative use of props. Eyal enjoys exploring with students the connections between our mind and our body and how these can change our perspective. In 1988 Eyal first went to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India to study directly under Guruji, B.K.S. Iyengar. He still travels there often, to study with the Iyengars.

In this workshop, you will learn how to use props to adapt our practice to the changing capabilities of the body and how to stay longer in supported asanas that open the body and keep the mind fresh and alert. For Eyal, the essence of the practice doesn’t change, only the form in which it is done. 

The essence is: “I apply myself (Tapas); I study myself (Svadhyaya) and I surrender myself”. 

These principles do not depend on what you can or can’t do, and they should not change with aging. However, in the aging process, our bodies do change and we lose some capabilities, which is hard to accept. If we can develop sensitivity and wisdom into our practice, we will learn to sync our practice with the aging process without over-doing nor under-doing. 

Aging is not only about decline – we also refine our practice to bring more depth born from experience and wisdom.
