BIOGRAPHY:

George DovasGeorge Dovas encountered Iyengar Yoga in Sydney, Australia in 1999 when he was working as a fitness instructor. At that time, George was keen to understand what it means to be "healthy" and “fit”. The teachings of BKS Iyengar revealed aspects of human health that George hadn’t encountered in any other modality or by any other “fitness expert”.

Not only was BKS Iyengar’s vision of human health profound, it was also his brilliance as a teacher that was noteworthy, and the skill with which he could convey the theoretical understanding of total “health” interwoven with the practices to achieve that.

In 2001 George relocated to Hong Kong at a time when fitness and Yoga were rapidly growing in Southeast and East Asia. Now, George is the Director of The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong. He teaches students of all levels and is a mentor for upcoming teachers. George is an assessor of teachers seeking Iyengar Yoga certification in South East Asia and China.

As well as teaching Yoga, he has given talks on Yoga, its benefits and how this ancient science is being verified by modern science.

Annually he studies at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India with the Iyengar family.

Formerly, as well as working in the fitness industry, he worked as a business consultant for a top tier professional-services firm.

List of George’s Sessions

Title:

Connections

Type:

Sat Brahma Middling

Length:

1.5 hour(s)

Description:

BKS Iyengar's sādhana revealed to him a matrix of connections between body, mind, breath, sense, psyche and consciousness.
These connections are revealed through the āsanas.

Furthermore, BKS Iyengar taught that Patañnjali's eight limbs are interlinked and interwoven - not separate.

When a practitioner witnesses these connections, and others too, the practice of āsana takes on greater depth and meaning.
