Since the beginning of yoga, it has been understood that the human body is constantly under the stress of gravity. Compression of the spine, the joints, and the nervous system, leads to pain, loss of mobility, and aging of the body. The effects of gravity can be reversed, though, by using traction to create space and alignment in the body.
Ancient yogis used vines, tree branches, and whatever was at hand to add traction to their practice. In the late 1960s and early 70s, B. K. S. Iyengar started working with ropes attached to the wall. In the 1980s, Kedric Wolfe, Aadil Palkhivala, and Bryan Legere created The Great Yoga Wall™, an infinitely adjustable version of the Iyengar rope wall that took traction to the next level.
When the pandemic shifted yoga practice to home-study, former studio students started creating dedicated yoga spaces at home, and for some, that meant installing Great Yoga Wall panels. Having a cool prop, though, doesn’t mean you always use it to its full potential, and Letitia found that home practitioners wanted more guidance on how to get the most out of a home wall system. In this weekend workshop, Letitia – directly trained by Aadil and Bryan – will help teachers and home practitioners alike discover how to use this fun, multi-faceted, powerful prop to help students and themselves go deeper into their yoga practice. Learn a new way to make asana accessible to a wider variety of students with this unique tool.
