The amazing thing is that I hadn’t got my husband ever interested in my yoga til this summer, when his doctor told him yoga is a key for balance, etc. The rope wall (along with the Boston Yoga Ropes Collective manual, Yoga Kurunta, which sits out at all times by our rope wall) has inspired him. He enjoys and benefits from exercises like Titanic from the book, and basic arm openings. He asked me to show him how to do Ropes Warm Up because he liked the photo of it on the cover of the book. He’s not quite there yet but we’re working on it. And the various stages shown in the book for poses like Vrksasana have inspired him to find his own level. I’m really excited for myself because the book has shown me how to progress on two poses I’ve been stuck on for ages: Adho Mukha Vrksasana worked into from Lollipop Ropes Sirsasana through Ardha Adho Mukha Vrksasana (a step forward for me as well as being so much fun!), and Chatturanga Dandasana from Low Ropes Plank. The Sunnyside Down Sling Cycle is my idea of a great time. There is so much in this book that I have already incorporated into my practice and even more to learn. I could not have a rope wall and be without it. It’s crazy being 60 years old and enjoying exercise like this but the ropes make it fun with no strain.
