Yoga Wall™


Experience the postures from a different perspective

My lessons with the use of Yoga Wall™

In my lessons I use the adjustable straps hanging on the wall, so that the student understands deeper aspects of posture such as directionality and body alignment and can connect with previously unknown parts of the body.

The straps are securely and precisely attached to plates that are inserted into the wall. In certain postures, they hold the body so that it is suspended like a puppet. Their use in reversed postures causes gravity to lengthen and relieve the spine - instead of shortening and straining it - and thus develops greater mobility and flexibility of the spine - rejuvenating

The yoga wall can be used as an excellent support for people with temporary or permanent physical complaints that require special attention. It is also suitable for older people as an additional support in posture.

  • Ideal as additional support for problems in the neck, shoulders, hips, back, knees and feet
  • Easy to use
  • Safe and entertaining

History of Yoga Wall™

The "wall of yoga" has existed for decades. It was originally built by Shri. B.K.S. Iyengar in the form of ropes attached to hooks on the wall and intended as support for the postures.
In Iyengar Yoga working with ropes is known as Kurunta Yoga. In South Indian theatre a kurunta is a wooden puppet or marionette. By using the cords on the wall in the practice of the postures, we become marionettes suspended on strings.

In my yoga room I use a new, more modern and refined version called The Great Yoga Wall™, which consists of a system of adjustable straps and pelvic swings that can be adjusted to suit any body size and constitution.
