For yoga teachers and practitioners alike, learn how to use this fun, multi-faceted, powerful prop to help students – and yourself – go deeper in their yoga practice.
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.
In this weekend workshop, Letitia – directly trained by Aadil and Bryan – will help teachers and 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.
Topics covered: Standing Poses and Hip Openers; Neck and Shoulder work; Inversions; Twists and Backbends; and Aadil Palkhivala’s Spinal Rejuvenation Series. See workshop schedule below. An extensive manual is included with the training, available only to participants of the weekend workshop.
