Suru Fest Early Gathering

Posted on

In the year 2014, a journey began unlike any other. A group of young adults ventured into the Himalayan folds looking for adventure. It was within the lofty ranges of Kargil (Kashmir), where they found their oasis; the Suru Valley.   The Suru Fest started by Tenzing Jamyang and Sandeep Maity, has been held for the past two years. Now, for the third year running, a pre-event is taking place at Delhi Rock.   The event will include some insane bouldering sessions, a short film screening and a Q&A session with some influential climbers, fitness/outdoor enthusiasts, nature conservationists and much more!   There is no entry fee, as it aspires to bring like-minded individuals together!   If you’re interested to join and would like to […]

Back to Nainital!

Posted on

Hi everyone! It’s blistering hot, and we’ve finally found someone to spell Ganeshsir at the gym, so now he’s excited to start adding the outdoors back to our programming. We haven’t done a climbing trip in ages! Nainital is obviously super nice this time of year, and there are tonnes of great bolted routes now, thanks to climbers like Anil Belwal, and the other climbers in the area. Pretty awesome. There’s even a nice government outdoor wall, int’l spec, which will be a likely warmup during the trip. We’ll leave late on Thursday June 14th night, and get back early Monday June 18th morning, so it’s effectively one extra day off from work, and is also a holiday weekend. This trip is suitable to folks […]

Aerial Self Practice

Posted on

Hi everybody! I wanted to jot down some thoughts on how to organise aerial silks and hoop self-practice, so that students can still train with us following our permanent teacher’s departure. This is so that we can invite in strong teachers from all over the country, and sustain our aerial practice until we have someone awesome in Delhi to teach regularly at Delhi Rock. Hours, pricing & logistics ~ Students are welcome to come train during our open hours. The fees applicable for self-practice are the same as for climbing, and you can also purchase passes or a monthly, just like climbing. ~ We would like students to pair up with at least one more person, so that they have a “buddy” around both to […]

Handstand drills & ATB / Yoga in the park

Posted on

This session is good for beginners or even for people who have found the balance in handstand and want to work on their core strength and refine their line. The idea is to find a good form, develop core strength and shoulder mobility which can support posture like handstands. In partner acrobatics – acroyoga, handstand training is an essential part of the practice for everyone. However for participants these drills can be a good addition to personal practice / fitness regime as drills help in developing core strength and mobility espc in upper body. There will be partner drills involved so it’s safe and fun 🙂 The key elements taught will be: • 15 mins warm up – shoulders and wrist focus • Downward-facing dog […]

Qi Gong & Yoga / Prashant Tewatia

Posted on

Photo credit Sigismondi Photography. Sat & Sun May 26-27 4.00 – 7.00 pm Rs 1,000 / 1,600 Ancient qigong and yoga are essentially two branches of the same tree. Though umbrella terms for a wide range of practices, both yoga and qigong are concerned with unifying the body in order to refine ones ‘qi’ or ‘prana’ to achieve higher states of being. While much of modern yoga has become synonymous with ‘flexibility’, the Chinese systems are thought to have better maintained their roots. The simple movements of qigong allow the student to easily and effectively feel the internal flows of energy in the body.   Once connected with this energy, we can carry this sense in to our yoga asanas to correct obstructions in flow […]
