Rope Workshop photos- Yoga Kurunta (puppet yoga)

Puppet yoga or Yoga Kurunta can be great fun and give you a real insight into how yoga postures can feel, which will revolutionise your practice.  Yoga ropes are fantastic for helping with any areas of stiffness too.

The workshop I held on 20th July was completed with some great comments, people felt great, improved their confidence and got rid of some long standing aches and pains, with one of my students Malcolm leaving the workshop saying ‘right, where do I get ropes!’

So I thought I would share the photos with you…..

The workshop was held at the Manchester and District Institute of Iyengar yoga as they have a rope wall as you can see from the photos, http://www.mdiiy.org.uk/

Yoga in the work place

If you sit at a desk or computer all day you may be aware of the aches and pains and rounded shoulders or stiff back that can occur.

Why not club together, or even persuade your boss or HR department to pay for a yoga class in your workplace.  You don’t need much space, maybe you could move some furniture in a meeting room and let me come to you.  I’ll teach you some great postures, asanas, to help with your posture at work and in day to day life.  Holding a class at work is the perfect solution to fitting in your excercise with your daily life. 

Remember that Iyengar yoga can help protect you from future injury and excercise in the day can boost productivity, you can read a study here.
