Ropes Workshops with Tristan Binns, CIYT

By Published On: September 28th, 2023


Come to our new studio for an in-person yoga ropes workshop! Tristan Binns, CIYT wrote and published Yoga Kurunta: Learning the Ropes with the Boston Yoga Ropes Collective. She has years of experience teaching ropes classes and loves to help take ropes students to the next level in their practice.

9:30am – 10:30am – Intro to Ropes

Great for newcomers to the ropes or those who have a bit of experience. This session will include warming up and cover standing poses and focus on a specific family of poses.

10:45am – 12:30pm – Intermediate Ropes

The Intermediate Ropes session will include warming up and inversions, and will focus on a specific pose family to go further with. The sequence notes will be emailed after the workshop so you can use them in your own practice going forward and won’t have to stop and take notes as we go along. Tristan is assuming you have ropes experience to join this session.


Tristan Boyer Binns has been practicing yoga since she was 14, when she stumbled into an eye-opening Breath of Fire workshop. Yoga has been a big part of her life throughout her travels, office work and pregnancies, and in coping with a young family.

Tristan was a children’s book publisher and author and had reached the end of her patience with writing books on the Vikings. Deciding to become a yoga teacher was like a curtain lifting—it suddenly was the right thing to do, the only thing to do and was great fun as well as some of the hardest work she had ever done.

Tristan completed her Iyengar teacher training in London with Julie Hodges and is a Certified Iyengar Instructor. She enjoys helping students find new ways to see their challenges, embrace the incredible strength we all have–physical and emotional–and learn to relax and release into softness. She is known for her sense of humor, detailed instructions, and love of ropes and restorative classes. She loves questions! Tristan is also a regular contributor to Iyengar Yoga Association of New England blog.
