Practice and parinama
Prashant Iyengar has said that for an ongoing practitioner of yoga, the most important yoga sutras to think about in relation to practice are those that deal with parinama, transformation, Sutras 3.9-3.12. In this workshop we will begin by reviewing these sutras and reflecting on what transformation might mean for us in the context of our practice. We will spend the rest of the workshop in an asana practice focused on parts of the body where we often feel stuck, and on the different aspects of parinama discussed in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. For the morning session the focus will be on twisting poses, and in the afternoon we will focus on backward extensions and inversions.

Patanjali’s Yoga sutras tell us that the practice of yoga is a means to find our own true selves. According to the sutras we cause ourselves suffering because we identify ourselves only by our outer form or physical embodiment. Yoga is a means to find a deeper sense of ourselves that is not subject to nature or change. Iyengar yoga starts with the physical body as a means to hone steadiness of body and mind for this inward journey.
This workshop will present a well-rounded practice of asanas for continuing beginners to advanced practitioners of Iyengar yoga. Students should have one year of continuous practice of Iyengar yoga.
We hope you can come and experience Randy’s friendly and knowledgeable teaching.
Registration for the entire workshop is recommended and early pricing ends on October 11. You may register for single classes, space available.

Randy Just is a dedicated Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher from Dallas Texas. He is most recently known to the Iyengar community through his successful organization of the 2019 IYNAUS National Yoga Convention hosting Abhijata Iyengar this past April. One reason for the success of the convention were the many volunteers from the community of practitioners that Randy has grown through his teaching and leadership in Dallas and the Southwest region. His students find him friendly, funny, and credit him with helping them get past limitations in their yoga practice. We have included some quotes from his students below.
Randy has been studying with Senior Iyengar teachers in the US and with the Iyengar family continuously since 1992. He has served the Iyengar National Yoga Association (IYNAUS) in many capacities and will be the next President of IYNAUS.
I’ve been coming to Randy’s classes for about a month now, and I can’t recommend his glasses enough. He is so knowledgeable and is constantly making sure that no one is injured or causing themselves pain while being in a pose. This studio really cares about your body’s health and overall well being! Highly recommend.
Great class! As always Randy is precise with instructions and adjustments that help deepen the practice.
To say that Randy’s classes are a cut above the rest, is an gross understatement. His depth of knowledge and ability to convey concepts in an engaging way, challenges the practitioner, at any level, to go deeper and broader in the poses. The classes balance rigorous intensity with focus and refinement. Like a really good piece of chocolate, you won’t want to settle for anything less.
My first time attending a class EVER but it was an amazing experience. The instructor was knowledgeable and kind. I thought I would feel intimidated but I think no matter what level of experience the individual, it’s a constant learning process. I would definitely return and recommend this location to anyone no matter the experience level.
