What people are saying about Eyal’s teachings & books
I have been using A Chair for Yoga for years for my personal practices and for teaching. I find in practice with a chair something very special that the book sheds light on: it takes care of my body and it helps me to deepen my practice and learning.
Noga ChepelinskiDirector of Iyengar Yoga Center, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Studying yoga with Eyal is a lesson of love. His simplicity in explaining a subject at the beginning of each class reminds me how grateful I am to be part of this Sangam. With this feeling of love, my mind becomes calm and I can approach each asana “with a small brain and a big heart”. Joy comes!
