WHAT IS TRAPEZE YOGA?

Backdive_edited_edited_edited_edited_edited.jpg

Trapeze Yoga is a unique holistic training that helps you decompress your spine, improve your flexibility, build up your balance and tone your core.

 

 

Key Benefits:

 

  • Relief and traction on your spine

  • Shoulder and neck tension release

  • Core strength development

  • Functional upper body and full-body strength

  • Accessibility of passive back bends

  • Promotion of blood circulation

 

 

While students are often attracted to the Trapeze for spinal traction and passive backbends, it’s often the functional pulling and grip strength they experience as a real compliment to their mat-based practice. 

 

A classic Trapeze routine includes pushing, pulling, holding, twists, backbends, forward bends, hip opening and much more. You can work your shoulders, release neck tension, increase your flexibility and relax your whole body, while gaining new perspectives at the same time. You do not need any prior knowledge or practice to attend your first class.

 

In my classes I include dynamic elements and relaxing parts, combined with breathing and short awareness exercises to create a holistic practice. The inversions make up a maximum of 20 minutes in a 60-minute class. I teach in German and English.

Spinal Traction

With the Trapeze, you can use gravity to your advantage while hanging upside down and elongating your spine. For many, this type of relaxation is unmatched by any other form of treatment and accessible without any prior yoga experience.

Flexibility

Beside inversions, there are numerous shoulder and neck openers, hip openers and other stretches that work just amazingly with the Trapeze. Using the leverage of the sling, suspension and gravity, you can take your flexibility training to a whole new level.

Suspension Training

Functional fitness requires the pushing, pulling, and holding of weight. In traditional mat-based yoga classes, you push and hold your body weight a lot, but you usually won’t find pulling motions. Pulling is a key movement for back, neck, and upper body health. The Trapeze adds functional pulling movements to your routine in a fun and energetic way.

Backbends

Backbends are some of the most challenging poses in yoga and the practice can be quite demanding. With the Trapeze, passive backbends become effectively accessible, and you can open the stiff and stuck areas of your shoulders and thoracic spine.
