|Balancing Strength and Flexibility:Deepen Your Wall Rope Experience with Michael|
5 & 6 November iapm mall
|About the Workshop|
|An Iyengar style practice, Wall Rope Yoga (Yoga Karunta, meaning "yoga puppetry") makes use of the ropes and the wall as props to aim for better alignment in yoga postures. Alignment is emphasised in yoga postures to protect the student from possible injury and to offer a stable foundation for the path of deeper exploration.|
Wall ropes are an important tool that offers each practitioner the proper fundamentals with which to open the pathway to expression in each asana. Ropes provide balance and stability, whilst strengthening the body and opening space within each posture.
• Strengthen hard-to-build muscles with proper alignment
• Enhance flexibility and mobility by using the wall rope system to create traction and lengthen the body
• Conquer the fear of being upside down and get the benefits of anti-gravity
Taught in Mandarin.

|Michael was born into a family of martial artists, so he has been exposed to various martial arts since childhood. He first stepped on the mat to improve his flexibility for his martial arts training, but after his first practice, he found that yoga, just like martial arts, is as much a physical as it is a mental practice. Yoga's emphasis on a balanced and disciplined lifestyle really speaks to Michael and he has grown tremendously after embarking on his yoga path.|
Michael graduated in dramatic literature from the Shanghai Theatre Academy. He's also had 15 years of personal training experience and has been teaching yoga full time since 2002. He is very grateful to his hot yoga teacher Bill Arce for his guidance and teachings. Bill's dedication, professionalism and integrity have greatly influenced Michael on and off the mat and how he teaches.
Michael's classes are lively with a good dose of humour, so his classroom is often filled with laughter. However, his classes are also challenging; with a background in personal training, he hopes to raise the fitness level of his students through yoga practice. He is particularly skilled in showing students how to get into a pose with good alignment. With a heart to inspire, Michael is also known for sharing verses and affirmations that he likes in his class.
