Yoga on a rope wall

With its health benefits, rope wall yoga has become a choice for many women after a long stressful day of work. 
Yoga Kurunta, or rope wall yoga, is a series of Lyengar yoga styles that originated in India. This type of yoga offers practitioners new experiences and an adventurous feeling.

In Yoga Kurunta, trainees practice a variety of poses with the help of a rope, which can withstand a force of 300kg. In order to do difficult poses, trainees have to practice every day.

With the rope hung on a wall and placed 1 meter above the floor, yoga Kurunta enables people to attain accuracy, agility and balance as the exercises focus on the upper-body muscles. Practitioners therefore have to focus their efforts and direct their mind toward themselves.

Rope wall yoga poses are designed to promote total body flexibility with stretching poses and challenging movements, in which the hanging pose helps boost the practitioners’ blood circulation and makes them feel younger in body and in mind.
