What are Rope Walls?
Rope yoga walls, invented by B.K.S. Iyengar, are an incredible tool for releasing chronic muscular tension and increasing awareness of our bodies in space (proprioception) and awareness of internal sensations (interoception).
“From steadiness comes ease”
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali II.46
