While many of the yoga poses we do on the Trapeze look very similar to their mat-based counterparts, the dynamics are unique. The Yoga Trapeze, a therapeutic inversion device builds strength, flexibility and balance, while promoting a strong core and healthy back. Apart from being super fun hanging upside down, when the body is in an inverted position, more space opens between each vertebra. The trapeze is an amazing tool to strengthen and stretch your whole upper body, shoulders, arms and core. It adds in the missing ‘pull’ motion lacking in mat-based classes.

The trapeze is a fantastic prop that assists one to get deeper into passive backbends and hold them for longer periods of time, thus allowing for spinal decompression.

The beauty of this practice is that one can see the world from the “right side down”. It is suitable for everyone no matter your flexibility or yoga practice level.

Do take the opportunity to have a session…you will love it.
