Yoga Wall ®
The Yoga Wall provides Sacramento with a modern enhancement of the traditional “rope wall” system, a method of yoga suspension which has its’ roots in the Iyengar tradition. Practice Yoga employs the advanced engineering of the Great Yoga Wall and takes Iyengar into the 21st Century!
The Yoga Wall has been thoughtfully engineered for safety and ease of use. It isn’t a toy, but rather, a tool for improving your overall health and yoga practice. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a whole lot of fun!
To make sure it always stays fun, we took the specifications of the Great Yoga Wall to an engineer and asked what we could do to make it even stronger and safer. She told us to put 2 x 4 blocking into the walls. We thought, “if 2 x 4’s are good, wouldn’t 4 x 4’s be better?”, so we put 5 rows of 2 x 4 blocking in front, and 5 rows of 4 x 4 blocking in back of the high gauge metal stud wall. Then, for added measure, we sunk 8 inch lag bolts into both the cement floor and the steel beam ceiling.
The original system called for 1 1/2 inch screws to attach the plywood sheets to the 2x4s. We decided to use 4 inch screws and tie directly into those massive 4 x4 blocks. Overkill, we know, but why skimp when it comes to safety?
Our studio features both Therapeutic and Power Wall classes, tailored to our Ashtanga program. so that our modern approach to work on the Wall supports traditional work on the floor. You’ll really want to try the Wall, so come and hang with us!!
