Understanding Props – Hannah Lovegrove and Rachel Lovegrove
Following on from their popular series of articles commissioned by Yogamatters, Hannah and Rachel are holding a workshop for yoga students who want to learn more about yoga props: their purpose, when and how to use them effectively. Suitable for teachers, trainees and experienced students of all yoga styles, this workshop will give deeper understanding of the principles behind the use of props and the specific functions of each one. There is a great deal to learn, so bring a notebook!
Part 1: A 2 hour practice using the props – a practical session of asana work taking you through a variety of poses using props, showing how to both depend and enhance the effects of the asana and to help those who struggle with certain poses.
Part 2: Q&A – a 30 minute question and answer session for specific queries about prop usage, how to help students whether in class or in your own home practice.
Rachel and Hannah are sisters who learned yoga as teenagers from their mother. They later trained and qualified as certified Iyengar Yoga teachers and have both been teaching yoga for over 20 years. Rachel lives in Southampton and runs www.OrangeTreeYoga.com Hannah lives in Dorset where she runs yoga classes and workshops. She has her own natural skincare range – www.LovegroveEssentials.com Both sisters visit India regularily to study directly the family of BKS Iyengar, from where the in-depth knowledge and application of props was first developed.
