The Ropes Basic Certification Weekend Program is open to students and teachers alike. It provides you with the tools to develop a meaningful Yoga practice incorporating the Ropes and prepares you to teach the basic forms on the ropes. If you've been taking classes and are still confused about how to set up for Rope Sirsasana (Headstand), or want to expand your understanding of how to work with the ropes in general, this is unique opportunity to get the hang of things! And you’ll learn how to adapt a door to this practice so that you can enjoy traction and other aspects of the ropes at home. Working with wall ropes is one of the surest ways to enjoy effortless inversion, release the back, increase range of motion and develop strength. But working safely and knowledgeably requires training and practice.
The three sessions develop the fundamental concepts of release, range of motion and strength, beginning with Adho Mukha Svanasana (Down Dog) and its variations, and encompassing both rope Sirsasana (Headstand) and rope Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand). Every other category of pose can be practiced on the ropes as well.
PREREQUISITES: You must have been practicing Yoga regularly for at least one full year. Please tell us in advance if you have any injuries, so that we can determine if this workshop is appropriate. Working with the ropes can help with injuries, but this may not be the right time.
