A comprehensive guide to Iyengar Yoga with the use of blocks

 

 

.Blocks for a Yoga Practice

 

An  e-guide to Iyengar Yoga practice with blocks

by David Jacobs & Jürgen Meusel

 

This guide is dedicated to Yogacharya Shri B.K.S. Iyengar

in honour and appreciation of his Life and Work.

 

About the Guide

 

Blocks for a yoga practice  compiled by David Jacobs and Jürgen Meusel

is a  guide, with photographs and basic instructions of the many uses

of  blocks in a yoga practice.

The e-book is a pdf.file and has 200 pages with more than 440 photographs.

(The pdf.file is 281MB also as WORD.doc 68.4MB)

 

The block is used on its own, in pairs or even sets and sometimes

enhances the use of other props, such as benches, chairs and the wall.

 

We have selected some of the most practised asanas.  

There are many more sub-poses and advanced asanas, 

where the blocks can be used.

 

It is our hope that this guide based on our 
experience and ideas, will be of some value.
