WHAT IS YOGA TRAPEZE?
A yoga trapeze is a swing-like contraption that allows you to hang from it in various ways. It also acts as a tool in many other yoga postures and muscle strengthening techniques.
It’s the most natural form of inversion therapy that lengthens the space between each vertebra. Think of it as an all-natural spine traction system or in simpler terms – what you need to reduce chronic low back pain!
It supports and assists the body in deeper backbends that normally cannot be accessed.
Helps build core and upper body strength through various movements.
Allows you to get upside down, reverse your blood flow, send fresh oxygen to the brain, and be invigorated/inspired!
1 - Inversion Therapy - This one is first because it’s the BIGGEST benefit you can experience from the yoga trapeze!
Because we’re a culture of sitting, our poor spines are constantly compressed which leads to all sorts of back pain – lumbar pain, herniated discs, pinched nerves, etc. The yoga trapeze helps create natural traction within the spine allowing it to lengthen and pull apart (instead of squishing together like normal).
It’s basically a big breath of fresh air for your spine & it’s an all-natural method – what more could you ask for?
2. Assisted Backbends
The trapeze is a beautiful tool to aid in opening your heart, stretching the front side body, and accessing backbends that are either inaccessible or too intense for you. You might be wondering – how the hell am I going to get into that & why is it so helpful?
The answer is simple – the yoga trapeze allows the posture to be passive, versus active. Yes – it will take effort to come into the posture, but then it’s all about relaxing, opening, and making space.
You feel me? I know you do – so let’s open that beautiful heart of yours!
3. Core Strengthening
Ummm….. did I say the word core?
Yes, yes I did. Don’t run away friends, it’ll be over in no time!
4. Assisted Stretching
Lastly – the yoga trapeze helps assist in a plethora of standing postures that allow us to go a bit deeper than normal, but still with a hella lot of support!
