Yoga Kurunta on the Rope Wall
Kurunta means a puppet or doll made of wood in Sanskrit. By using the ropes attached to the wall to practice yoga asanas, we become like puppets suspended by ropes.
With Yoga Kurunta, you learn to manipulate yourself in the various yoga postures by means of suspended ropes as if you were a puppet. Here the puppeteer and the puppet are one, performing their own puppet show.
Yoga Kurunta is beneficial for those working deeper in poses, for those new to yoga, as well as for people recovering from injuries or illness.
Practicing yoga this way opens the body, releasing tension in the spine and pelvic area and allows easier access to even the most difficult poses. An effective way to work with the elderly or stiff practitioners. The ropes also help correct scoliosis. By aiding in the support of the body, the ropes act as a prop that allows the benefits of performing yoga asanas without strain.
Yoga Kurunta makes students more aware of postural alignment and helps to open areas of the body that might be difficult for them to reach. The system is also helpful for students with special needs (therapeutic) and for older people who may need extra support.
