“By the practice of Yoga Kurunta, one gains agility, lightness of the body, speed in movements, and alertness in the brain.”
- Geeta Iyengar, Yoga: A Gem for Women
With support of the ropes, students develop courage to pursue poses that may seem challenging, if not impossible, to them. In this two-session weekend workshop, we will present ropes-supported variations of poses from all categories of asana: standing, forward and backward extensions, inversions and twists.
Benefits include: observation of asymmetries to address proper alignment; ability to target specific areas of the body, strengthening and increasing flexibility; finding support for poses that are difficult due to age, stiffness, injury or fear; improvement of balance and stamina; and the opportunity to remain longer in poses and thereby experience effects on a deeper level.
No drop-ins: Work is cumulative. Sessions may not be taken individually.
Pre-requisite: Intermediate Level Practice, at least one year of continuous Iyengar Yoga instruction
