More Information

Why are ropes used for yoga practice?
Yoga practice with ropes can develop agility, confidence and alertness; variations of movement can bring freedom to joints; some more intense stretches can be safely experienced; ropes can be used for remedial (therapeutic) and restorative yoga.
In Section VIII of Geeta Iyengar's Yoga: A Gem For Women on 'Yoga Kurunta' she explains:
'Kuranti is a puppet, a doll made of wood". In Yoga Kurunta one learns to manipulate oneself in the various Yoga postures by means of a suspended rope as if one were a puppet. Here the puppeteer and the puppet are one, performing their own puppet show.'
How can I learn more about Yoga Kurunta?
There is very little written information on yoga with ropes. Try to find an experienced teacher. Yoga Kurunta is often associated with the Iyengar school of yoga. In Yoga: A Gem For Women Geeta gives specific instruction on seven ropes techniques. Chris Saudek, a Senior Iyengar teacher in North America has produced an illustrated guide, call Yoga Kurunta.
Which kind of ropes system should I use?
There are several kinds of system for ropes yoga practice on the market, including eyebolts fixed into the wall, tracks along which the ropes fixings slide, and even entire wall units developed to hold various fixtures and fittings. The type we offer is static ropes hang from pairs of eyebolts fixed into the wall. Two pairs of ropes, a long pair higher up and a shorter pair lower down, are attached to large 'eyebolts' embedded in the wall. This is the classic approach used in many studios and yoga Institutes.
How are the ropes attached to the walls?
The ropes are threaded through eyebolts. Installing eyebolts requires a 20mm drill bit - larger than is to be found in most domestic toolboxes. There is more detailed fixing advice below.
Can I make my own yoga ropes?
Yes - if you are confident about tying knots! The equipment we sell for fixing eyebolts to the wall is not always easy to find but is available from specialist hardware suppliers.
What kind of wall do I need?
At this stage we have to advice you to seek advice from a professional builder or other appropriately qualified person. You need to be certain that the wall you will be fixing to is strong enough to bear the full force of your weight being forcefully pulled away from the wall. Eyebolts can be fixed into a non-deleterious (ie non-crumbly) brick, concrete or stone wall. Plasterboard walls and breeze blocks are not suitable.
Fittings can also be attached to wooden uprights if they are strong enough. You may be able to find eyebolts attached to large screws ('coach bolts') to use in wood (we do not supply these). There is some useful information about fixing to timber walls at www.iyogaprops.com.au
Can I put up the rope fixings myself?
At this stage we have to advise you to use a professional builder or other appropriately qualified person to put up your ropes. Having said that - many experienced/competent 'diy-ers' have put up ropes safely. We do not offer a ropes fixing service. Whoever is putting up the ropes should read the tips below.
How wide apart should the ropes be?
There is no definitive answer. The best way to decide is to measure the distance apart of some ropes you are already using comfortably and replicate that. About half a metre or a little wider than shoulder width apart is often suggested. In Yoga: A Gem For Women Geeta suggests two to two-and-a-half feet apart.
How high should the ropes be?
Again, there is no definitive answer. The best way to decide is to measure the height(s) of some ropes you are already using comfortably and replicate that. Variable factors include the length of the ropes and your height. Don't get too hung about this (excuse the pun): In Yoga: A Gem For Women Geeta suggests hanging the ropes from the window bars - so this is not a precise science. One suggestion is this: Reach up on tiptoes; fix the top pair of ropes where you can touch with fingertips. They should hang down to about hip height. The lower pair of ropes should be fixed to the wall at about hip height.
Remember - if the top ropes are too long (ie hanging too low for you) a simple knot can be tied in the rope to make them shorter.
Use a spirit level to make sure that the positions you have marked on the wall are level. Decide if you want yo
