ROPES – 2 pairs of ropes (long and short) plus 2 pairs of eye bolt fixings and polyester mortar anchor (glue) – everything you need for ropes practice except the wall. Please read the ‘More information‘ section for advice about fitting ropes. Please seek guidance from your yoga teacher about ropes yoga.
On the Practice pages, you will see some of the many ways you can use yoga props. There are two benefits to using a prop – one is extension and the other is relaxation. In his search for alignment, Mr Iyengar designed and developed many of these to help his students achieve a better experience of the pose, whatever their difficulties might be. “In order to build up confidence in them, I thought that unless and until I innovate props for support to do the asana with ease, and also keep their mental frame stable, I felt quick recovery from ailments may not be possible without innovating props.”
