Please join us to celebrate the publication of Yoga Kurunta: Learning the Ropes on May 11 in Down Under Yoga’s Brookline studio.

This resource is a comprehensive guide to using wall ropes in your yoga practice. It features step-by-step instruction and over 100 pose variations, all in full color, with hundreds of photographs. There are two editions, both 244 pages long: a sturdily wire-bound book that lies flat and stays open, and a downloadable interactive PDF digital edition. Down Under teachers and assistants Tristan Boyer Binns, Donna Gross Javel, Val Leiter, Greg Sullivan, and Pam Toomey all worked together as the Boston Yoga Ropes Collective to create and publish this work. Patricia Walden wrote the foreword.

We will begin the evening’s festivities with a demonstration by the BYRC team of the step-by-step way we teach in the book, plus a show of some of our favorite poses. Patricia Walden will talk about the way ropes are used in Iyengar yoga. Tristan Boyer Binns will share how and why we created the book, and take any questions you may have. There will be celebratory cake and books for sale and signing. We can’t wait to see you there and celebrate this amazing achievement together!
