The ropes wall is a prop just as a mat, block, bolster or a blanket is a prop. The ropes work by using gravity as a natural form of resistance, allowing the body to open much further than in regular yoga practice. They give the body feedback as you work to deepen the pose. At Root, we have a special ropes wall with handles where Alison West's signature orange slings can be attached for greater comfort and more creativity in poses for tractioning the neck and spine. We invite you to come to class to experience for yourself the freedom of spinal release!
