Trapeze Yoga Benefits
Instant Pain Relief
As much as 80% of the population live with back pain, but with the Yoga Trapeze, clients can use gravity to elongate their spine and find pain relief. No prior yoga experience is needed, and the pain relief provided is unmatched by any other treatment.
The Yoga Trapeze allows traditional mat yoga classes to meet functional fitness. Mat yoga classes do not offer pulling motions, which is a critical movement for neck, back, and upper body health. The Yoga Trapeze allows functional pulling movements in a fun and dynamic way.
Using the sling, suspension, and gravity, the yoga trapeze allows you to build flexibility in a whole new way. The Trapeze acts as a prop and allows for deeper, and supported hip & shoulder openers, backbends, and hamstring stretches that can only be done with the Trapeze.
Exercise has never been more fun! With the Yoga Trapeze, you are challenged to get into new, fun poses that encourage you to get stronger and more flexible WITHOUT forcing yourself into the gym. Having fun in the Trapeze is all the motivation you’ll need!
Traditional Yoga vs. the Yoga Trapeze
In order to have well-balanced, comprehensive strength in our bodies, we must use training that includes pushing, holding and pulling. Mat yoga offers an incredibly balanced practice, utilizing all muscle and skeletal systems in harmony with one another, which is one reason traditional yoga has become so popular.
The one movement that is missing from traditional yoga is a “pull” motion. There are no dumbbells and nothing to hold onto, so yogis who only use yoga as a form of fitness may have weaker wrists, shoulders and grip strength. This is why it is not uncommon for yoga students to suffer from wrist, shoulder, upper back and neck pain. It’s most often due to underdeveloped strength – rather than poor alignment that is often cited as the cause.<br><br>
The Yoga Trapeze, used in conjunction with traditional mat yoga, offers a truly comprehensive fitness modality. It allows pulling, pushing, holding, twisting, bending, and more! It is different than traditional mat yoga because it demands a great deal of upper body and core strength. It allows for deeper, passive back bends that can be held for longer periods of time.
