Hang like a puppet on a string and reap the benefits that Yoga Kurunta has to offer. Yoga Kurunta (meaning "puppet") uses ropes or straps as a prop to assist in gaining length, strength, balance, alignment, and more ease in yoga postures than would be possible on your own. The yoga rope wall originated with B.K.S. Iyengar as a way to support and intensify asana practice through the use of ropes tied to a simple window frame, becoming common in homes throughout India.
There are numerous benefits to practicing yoga on the rope wall:
- Receive support in balancing poses
- Gain extension and length in standing poses
- Enjoy the benefits of inversions without weight on the hands, arms, or head
- Improve spine health by using traction to relieve pressure or compression of the vertebrae
- Practice difficult asanas safely and with ease
- Release tension in the joints, bringing more freedom of movement to the body
- Improve circulation and blood flow to the entire body
As Geeta Iyengar stated in A Gem for Women, "By the practice of Yoga Kurunta one gains agility, lightness of the body, speed in movements, and alertness in the brain." So what are you waiting for? Mark your calendars for our new class "Yoga on the Wall" starting Tuesday, October 4, 2016 from 5:15 - 6:30 pm.
