A Rope Wall class will introduce this fun prop into your practice! Ropes Yoga can help to strengthen and open up new areas of your body and help you explore familiar poses in new ways. All levels are welcome in this class but you should have a basic understanding of yoga, of any lineage for this class. The pace is active and fun. In sanskrit, the language of yoga, ropes are called yoga kurunta; kurunta is translated as “puppet”, like a marionette puppet. You literally use the ropes as if you were a puppet on a string bringing playfulness into your practice. The ropes can help you by supporting postures so you gain greater mobility and flexibility, releasing tension and stiffness. Many students find that the wall ropes can help guide body alignment more clearly.
