Learning the Ropes with Sandy Carmellini
November 6, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Saturday afternoon on Zoom
Learn new ways to work with this fun and innovative prop! You will enjoy how the resistance and gravity-defying assistance of wall ropes can help you experience asana in a very different way. On a basic level, the ropes create space in the body and can help make poses more accessible. On a deeper level, they can help us to bring more intelligence and awareness to our body and enhance possibilities for movement and freedom in our practice.
In this workshop we will explore the use of ropes in standing poses, inversions, back and forward extensions! You will have an opportunity to:
- Explore the ropes and change your relationship to gravity
- Learn how asana using ropes can affect the brain, endocrine system, and digestive systems
This course is best for those who have studied Iyengar Yoga for at least three months.
You must have a ropes installed in your home in order to attend this workshop. Some poses can be done by using a door with 2-4 straps. However, a rope wall will be optimal.
