Five Reasons to Try Rope Wall Yoga (adapted from Mind Body Green)
Discover a new and exciting way to practice yoga.
The yoga rope wall can bring a fresh perspective to your understanding of yoga postures, from backbends to forward bends, twists or inversions.
One definition of yoga is “the harnessing of one’s physical and mental energies in order to revitalize oneself.” The actual physical harness of the ropes in their many configurations will help you direct your body and mind toward a state of equanimity and balance.
Reach places where your regular practice cannot take you.
The body is safely supported by the traction of the ropes, stretching and strengthening those hard to reach areas of the spine.
Reap the benefits of sustained asana.
Because the body is tethered by the ropes and anchored with the feet, a pose like Downward Facing Dog can be practiced for a longer period of time. This gives the practitioner an opportunity to refine their breathing and go deeper into the experience of asana.
With support of a rope wall, inversions become more accessible. The body is able to release, while simultaneously hanging upside down in suspension.
Anchor your pose and expand your movement.
There is increased mobility in the joints as the body is able to move beyond the range of its everyday motions.
You’re bound to get hooked!
After you feel the immediate results, you will want to get back to the wall! You’re bound to leave the studio walking taller and feeling more supple in your spine.
