Yoga was developed to make it comfortable for practitioners to stay still in one positions (for meditation) for a long time. Getting bound up in rope also tends to cause people to stay still in one position for a long time, making yoga a great practice to help prepare for rope play. This class will be appropriate for people at all levels, and will focus on opening the muscles of the shoulders, back and hips to make binding more comfortable.
Have you ever considered learning yoga but were too chicken? Afraid you’d have to contort your body like a pretzel while standing on one leg? There is an easier way. Come learn about poses (asanas as they’re known in yoga) that will help you get in touch with your body & spirit, increase your flexibility and improve your balance all while connecting with the divine energy. (some mats will be available but please bring your own if you have one)
