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.

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!

Eyal Shifroni is a world-renowned Iyengar yoga teacher, practitioner, and author. His creative and innovative work with yoga props is highly acclaimed by yoga practitioners and teachers of the Iyengar tradition. Eyal taught a seminar at our yoga center in 2018 and practitioners and teachers from across the country came to study with him. The seminar was very well received and successful.

Eyal is a very senior Iyengar Yoga teacher who has made a great contribution to the yoga community in large through the many books that he has written in which he so generously shares decades of his teaching notes and experience with everyone.
Eyal is an extraordinary teacher, who does this sharing with humility and compassion. Those who are fortunate to learn with him come away with a deeper and fuller understanding of their yoga practice.

I had the honor to meet and have classes with Eyal Shifroni. He is an excellent yoga teacher, known all over the world for his books and his teachings, something unique! Eyal has an extraordinary capability as an Iyengar yoga teacher renowned to be precise and creative in his teachings, he also knows so many ways to use props in the practice of Yoga. I highly recommend his classes to everyone interested in Yoga.

Eyal’s last book: “The Extended Chair for Yoga” is an essential book for yoga teachers and enthusiasts alike. This book encourages the exploration and creative use of the chair which leads to an exploration of different areas of the body and the effect this has on the mind. I appreciate Eyal’s books very much, they keep my personal practice sharp and fresh!

It is with much enthusiasm that I highly recommend Eyal, as he is a very special and dedicated teacher and also a very disciplined, sincere, and full of true knowledge and strong practice.
Eyal was my instructor a couple of times in classes I took around the world. In these classes, Eyal displayed a very high level of maturity, creativity, clarity, respect, and enthusiasm. He is one of those memorable teachers and I sure he can spread yoga and joy for lots of people.
His writing and research talents are also fantastic! – authored the books (in English): A Chair for Yoga (translated also to the Portuguese language), the series: Props for Yoga Vol. I, II, III, series of guides document standard and innovative usages of props during a yoga practice, The Psycho-Physical Lab: Yoga Practice and the Mind-Body Problem and The extended Chair for Yoga.

Eyal Shifroni is a yoga teacher with extraordinary capabilities in the field of Iyengar yoga. He combines decades of practice and teaching experience with a background as a scientist and university teacher and this combination makes him truly unique.
Eyal’s capacity to break down the techniques so specific for Iyengar yoga and his creativity in the use of yoga props are very special, and so is his view on yoga philosophy.
Eyal has written books that are well received and widely used by students the world over, both on the subject of prop use (Props for Yoga Vol. 1, 2 and 3, and The Extended Chair for Yoga) and on the philosophical background of the mind-body problem for which yoga may hold answers (The Psychophysical Lab).
The Psychophysical Lab presents a unique view on yoga combined with Western philosophy, and Eyal can make this tangible in his honest and modest way of teaching. He has done so in our yoga studio to full rooms on 2 previous occasions and I can safely say that he will be able to bring something new to the table wherever he goes.
