Receptivity & Support: Wall Rope Workshop with Anjan Kundu
The Yoga Rope Wall is an Iyengar style (“Yoga Karunta”, meaning yoga puppetry) of practising yoga, implementing the use of the ropes and the wall as props for alignment in Yoga postures. Alignment is emphasised in yoga postures to protect the student from possible injury and to offer a stable foundation for the path of deeper exploration.
Wall Rope is an important tool that will equip each practitioner with the proper fundamentals for opening the pathway to expression in each asana. The yoga ropes are used to provide balance and stability, while strengthening the body and opening space within each posture.
- Lengthen your spine and open your joints. It allows your spine to extend much further than in normal yoga poses, which will make you feel taller and enable you to go deeper in poses like backbends.
- Strengthen hard-to-build muscles. As soon as you start to work with the ropes, you notice the amount of strength that’s required of your arms (e.g. forearms) and core in every pose.
- Improve your inversions. In addition to building arm strength, you’ll also be able to get upside down more easily than on the mat – especially students with a personal fear of flipping the head towards the ground.
Recommended for students with:
- Less than 1 month of yoga experience
- No prior experience of wall rope class
- A beginner’s mind
- Desire to reap the benefit of sustained yoga postures
- Desire for foundational practice by focusing on alignment
- Fear of inversions without wall support
Not recommended if you have the following health conditions:
- High blood pressure
- Recent post-natal surgery (past 12 months)
- Detached retina or any severe condition affected by inversions
The asana practice is just a portion of your yoga journey – the rope wall will deepen the awareness of breath and body, offering deeper release and integration of the practice of yoga. Come join us to reach the places where your regular practice cannot take you.
Day 1: 21 February (Sunday)
11:00am – 2:00pm
Lengthen & Invert: standing, forward fold, inversion and restorative postures
The ropes can be utilised as props to support standing postures and support the entire body weight for inversions, allowing the spinal column to lengthen and traction, eliminating back pain and compression.
Day 2: 28 February (Sunday)
2:30pm – 5:30pm
Align & Restore: backbend, twisting, inversion and restorative postures
The ropes provide support to open fully into a safe rotating twist with appropriate pelvic alignment and also allows for greater opening of the chest and intense release of the shoulders.
