There was always a great connection between climbing and yoga. Yoga is the potentially most powerful tool for the climber. Climbing contains as main physical points for the full development of this activity, balance, elasticity, balance, focus, self-control, and fibrous strength. All these concepts are exposed in yoga. Through the asanas (the postures) of yoga, we also work in a specific and unique way the energetic flow that reverberates in every part of our body, but it shines by its monopoly in mental focus, so important that it becomes basic in climbing. This happened separately. Now the union has made strength and the Yoga Climb as a unique concept, has come to stay. There was always a great connection between climbing and yoga.

Climb Yoga is about yoga adapted to climbing. There are two types of ends in this new sport. The climber who practices it to improve his climbing, and on the other hand, as an activity in itself, people who after a day of stressful work, find their perfect activity to clear, exercise, shape and stretch in body working body and mind . The Climb Yoga must always be practiced in a climbing wall to guarantee the safety of vertical positions, and because it is thanks to the adhesion of the resin dams, that we can focus fully on the whole body. The postures are practiced both in soil and in dams. At the beginning it is practiced in low grip, and when the level of confidence is high, little by little it can be raised vertically and practiced in a more aerial way. The rope is always necessary because it is a fundamental pendular tool in verticality, and the physical differences between the activity of yoga and Climb Yoga focuses on two primary physical parts. The hands and the feet. The hands in yoga are worked in a natural and minimal way, while the Climb Yoga are stretched and strengthened in a powerful way. And as far as the feet are concerned, in yoga the bare feet are always barefoot, while in the Climb Yoga, there are combined breaks in the floor and with the foot of the cat in verticality. However, not every cat’s foot is valid for yoga. Tulson Tolf has been the first and the only brand to design specific cat feet for it. The use of the foot of cat is obligatory for two reasons. Yoga works give, and you need to trust your feet when you are stretching into prey. That means you need a specific grip with climbing rubber to feel safe while you stretch slowly. On the other hand, you need to go barefoot (without socks), justly lightening the pressures that are necessary for both yoga and climbing. The cat foot STEP 1 is the ideal cat foot for its more extensive practice. while STEP 2 cat foot becomes the ideal cat foot for the vertical inversions that are the highest level of this modality, thanks to the rear rubber. They are comfortable cat feet, without tension system direct applied stresses, focusing on releasing the necessary tip for the balance, the total release of the heel for the full work of the whole leg, muscles and tendons. Any cat foot will hurt you in the long term because it will impede the full movement that yoga requires, and in the short term it will prevent you from enjoying this activity as well as making you feel incredibly uncomfortable.

Every day more and more gyms accommodate a small space of verticality with dams of climbing wall for the practice of Climb Yoga. Climbing is no longer just a space for climbers and climbers, the climbing walls are no longer just training space for climbers, they are training spaces for many city people who find in their practice liberation, focus, strengthening, and perfect activity afterwards of a day of exhausting work. Free your mind, boost your mental power, your focus, oxygenates the whole body, and develops you as people. You come home feeling a new person having released hormones of happiness. Yoga is probably the most practiced activity in the world with centuries and acronyms of antiquity. It is the most powerful body and mental work that humanity has known. Together, Climb Yoga is unbeatable, unmatched, and its results are unmistakable. Climb Yoga is born to last. Have you already practiced it? Try it! You will fall in love.
