Great Yoga Wall
A state-of-the-art system that focuses on using traction to support the pose (Yin), teaching the body how correct alignment should feel, serving as a complement to more active practice (Yang). The Wall allows for greater access to yoga postures and longer holds, increasing their therapeutic effect – a true gateway to transformation and healing.
The Yoga Wall System is based on BKS Iyengar’s original rope wall. Iyengar is considered the father of alignment-based, therapeutic, and restorative yoga. This type of yoga focuses on alignment and postural balance as a gateway to both inner and outer transformation and healing. BKS Iyengar invented most of the props typically found across various yoga settings today: mats, blankets, bolsters, straps, and more. His style of yoga integrates props to adapt traditional yoga postures for a Western body: helping us to truly start from where we are, taking our practice further and experiencing a greater depth to the practice.
The Great Yoga Wall is a system that replaces the traditional Iyengar ropes. The beautifully designed adjustable straps support different parts of the body, taking strain and pressure off unstable and/or overused joints. The Wall is ideal for students new to yoga as well as experienced students and teachers looking to enhance and refine their practice.
