Basic Certification Program w/ recording

with Alison  


Sign up now

This unique Weekend Ropes Certification Program is open to both 200-Hour + Teachers and seasoned students. This is a rare opportunity to methodically discover the wonderful world of wall-ropes and wall-slings.  You will be able to do this work on a door as well.

Working with slings and ropes is one of the surest ways to enjoy effortless inversion, release the back and other joints, increase range of motion and develop strength, and practice restorative Yoga. But working safely and knowledgeably requires training and practice. 

  • Learn principles of practice and safety

  • Develop strength, range of motion, release, alignment awareness, and more.

Supplementary material

You will receive a link to a folder with extra material including how to set up a door as a rope wall. You are asked to review this material BEFORE the workshop. This is an ideal way to become familiar with door ropes/belts before we start.
