PERCEPTION and MONITORING of our own body, not the perfectly performed asana, is the core. These two factors are the most important for a dancer and no dancing technique can substitute them. This is where I see the biggest benefit and unsubstitutability of yoga in dancing environment. Least but not last is definitely DISCIPLINE which yoga requires and is later beneficial in the dancer’s working process. This aspect is not granted and presumes a concentrated and conscious preparation based on self monitoring and perception of our own body as a working tool and its needs. I truly believe this work will enable to intermediate certain view on the topic – Yoga in the context of a dance – not only to laics, but even specialists might find it interesting. It is a reflection of many years of my experience and results of my research which made me enter the studies.
