Yoga kurunta & macramé workshop with Claire & Alison

Sat 5th August 10am-12.30pm at Maitri Studio, 4 The Mount, Belfast BT5 4NA

Join Claire and Alison for a morning of rope work - explore the wall ropes for yoga and then try mindful macrame to create a beautiful knot design you can take home. This is part of the wonderful East Belfast Arts Festival 2023.

Yoga kurunta with Claire of Claire Ferry Yoga & Maitri Studio

Yoga kurunta is the name given to using wall ropes as a prop to help explore your asana practice. Kurunta refers to a wooden doll or puppet mobilised by string, so in this practice we let the ropes take some of the strain and find the extra length and freedom that allows us to cultivate. We'll have an hour's practice with Claire's instruction, your yoga practice guiding the mind within and ending with a relaxation. This prepares you for part two.....

Mindful Knotting with Alison of ASTRL Fibres

Join Alison from ASTRL Fibres and explore the mindful practice of knotting. Knots are a powerful tool that represent principles of connection, balance, unity and release with a simple strand of cord. Alison will guide you through the fundamentals of tension and opposition to allow your knot to take shape, a practice that will reward you with a decorative knot to take home. We love the connection between Alison's macrame and the knots we use at the studio to tie the yoga ropes in place!
