Successful Weekend at Postures for Joan White’s Iyengar Yoga Weekend

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

The Eggs were a success with the very talented Joan White by their side at her most recent weekend of general and continuing education classes at Postures Yoga in Naples, Florida.  Students and teachers that attended the workshop reveled in the expertise that Joan offered in the Iyengar yoga studio, having returned by special request.

Those that attended adapted the Eggs in several different applications.  For Supta Sukhasana and Supta Baddha Konasana Joan demonstrated how using two Eggs on their side adjacent to each other as well as under the dorsal and thoracic spine provided immense support, along with additional Eggs and blankets to raise the head.

Studio owner Suzie Muchnick participated in the powerhouse Iyengar yoga weekend as well, teaching a variety of classes alongside Joan.  Suzie said that she enjoys “using them under the lower sacrum to the bottom of the shoulder blades for Setu Banha Sarvangasana.”  She used additional Eggs laid flat to change the geometry for individual bodies with taller or more open students.

Following Joan’s workshop weekend we took a minute to follow up with Suzie. She told us that “my students and I find working with the Eggs a lot of fun and in some ways, for some asanas, more efficient then blankets or blocks.  Another tool in our tool chest! or is it another toy in our toy chest?”

We appreciate the continued support from Suzie and Postures Yoga Studio.  This was just the first of Joan’s 2012 workshop tour; stay tuned to the 3ME Blog for continued updates!

Below are just a few moments captured from this amazing weekend.

Flat Egg under headSo you say you are having six Three Minute Eggs for Thanksgiving dinner?Well, whatever you have for this yearly feasting day, no doubt your belly will end up full.  Sometimes when our bellies get very full, we suffer from indigestion, or worse even, heartburn.  As one might expect, yoga offers relief.Most intermediate yogis will be able to perform full Supta Virasana (Reclined Hero’s Pose), the classic posture for moving food out of the belly.  However, that pose is not accessible to many people due to the deep fold of the knee, combined with short quadracep muscles, which then often puts strain on a our lower back.Enter the Three Minute Egg®.

My very favorite yoga pose to aid in digestion and restoration, I call Suspended Supta Baddha Konasana.  This pose uses all six of my Eggs and is so lovely that every joint, the diaphragm, and every major blood vessel are relaxed, open and flowing freely.

How to perform Suspended Supta Baddha Konasana:

1. Begin by placing two Eggs side by side under you mid-chest.  Place another egg flat under your head.  Check to be certain that (more…)
