Yoga Karunta – Working With Wall Ropes

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 tthree 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. In session III we will explore intermediate backbends and special techniques in inverted, standing and forward bending postures. Permission of instructor required.
This workshop is open to practitioners with one year of yoga asana experience. Session III requires permission of the instructor. 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 $45 per session, $135 for the entire series. – Pre-registration is required.

Students will learn yoga practices that will help to release and align the neck and shoulders, manage stress, and promote good posture and relaxation.
