In the Fall 2011/Winter 2012 blog for the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States (IYNAUS), one of America’s senior Iyengar Yoga teachers, Joan White, has written a wonderful review of the Three Minute Egg. Joan brings the conversation to the table by admitting that she “understand[s] the resistance to yoga props that are not yet being sold by the Institute in Pune,” however with careful and deliberate experimentation she has found a positive response amongst her introduction of the Eggs to students in her workshops around the world.
Joan writes that she has even given some Eggs to B.K.S. Iyengar for Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI), the heart and soul of Iyengar Yoga. RIMYI is located in Pune, Maharashtra, where Iyengar resides. Jason will be headed over to India on January 4th for a month-long hangout with the Iyengar community.
Joan writes that she specifically “love[s] using them in Adho Mukha Svanasana to support both my head and my forearms, and they support my back beautifully in Setu Bandha.” She also writes that these are just three of the asanas she prefers to use them with, as “there are so many more ways to use them…[and] my students, always my greatest teachers, keep coming up with new ideas.”
Endless gratitude to Joan, for her kind words, and to the IYNAUS, for including this review in their editorial content.
