An Introduction To Working With Wall Ropes  

Session I –  Saturday, November 22 – 2-4 PM                                             Session II – Saturday, December 13 – 2-4 PM

Karunta is a puppet. In Yoga Karunta one learns to manipulate oneself in the various yoga postures by means of belts and suspended ropes.  Working with wall ropes is one of the surest ways to enjoy effortless inversion, release the back, increase range of motion and develop strength and a sense of direction in difficult asanas. Working safely and knowledgeably, however, requires training and practice.

This two part workshop series will provide participants with a basic introduction to working with ropes. In session I we will develop the fundamental concepts of release, range of motion and strength, beginning with adho mukha svanasana (downward facing dog pose) and its variations, rope standing poses, and variations variations of rope sirsasana (headstand) and supported sarvangasana (shoulder balance) as appropriate. In session II we will review the the concepts covered in our first session and introduce basic backbends.

This workshop is for experienced practitioners, aspiring teachers and teachers.  Class size will be limited to 12.  Please tell us in advance if you have any injuries, so that we may determine if this workshop is appropriate for you. Cost $35 per session, $70 for the entire series. – Pre-registration and permission of the instructor is required.

Healthy Neck and Shoulders – Continuing

Saturday, December 6, 2-4 PM.

The feeling of carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders can create and build tension throughout the upper back and neck. Our modern lifestyle of being in a car, airplane, on the phone and spending long hours using a computer all contribute to the load on our neck and shoulders resulting in chronic pain and discomfort.

Come join us at a special workshop that will introduce tools and techniques for overcoming generalized neck and shoulder discomfort and build upon the techniques introduced in previous neck and shoulder workshops. Students will learn yoga practices that will help to release and align the neck and shoulders, manage stress, and promote good posture and relaxation.

Class size for this workshop will be limited to 12.This class is appropriate for beginners and experienced students. Cost $35.   Pre-registration required.
