"my ending should be your beginning"

B.K.S. Iyengar 

THE METHOD

The emphasis is on detail, precision, alignment and breath control "pranayama". We use props such as bricks, belts, bolsters, chairs, ropes and blankets to help assist the student to move into the asanas properly and to accommodate injuries, tightness and imbalances.

 

Asanas are held longer and there is diversity in the practice, different sequences help improve injuries, improve health and prevent overuse. 

KURUNTA YOGA

Yoga asanas with the aid of WALL ROPES. The word Kurunta means puppet in Sanskrit (ancient Indian), using the wall ropes, we become like puppets suspended in ropes.

 

 

Dr Geeta S. Iyengar refers to ropes: "for the physical benefit of our practice with the deeper philosophical meaning of using the yogic practice to progression on the path of freedom from bondage"

 

This is one of the most therapeutic yoga practices. It is a great way to open the body and release tension in the spine and pelvis. All major muscle groups are stretched and strengthened and has lengthening and relaxing effects on the body and nervous system.

 

Yoga Kurunta is supportive, beneficial and restorative for all levels and ages.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative Yoga is helpful when recovering for illness and injuries, also in those days when feeling weak, fatigued, or stressed from daily routines.

 

This yoga is focused on restorative poses, supported by props to assist and for a deep relaxation of the body and the mind.
