What is Trapeze Yoga?

Inversion Therapy and Suspension Strength Training

Why Practice Trapeze Yoga?

  • Spinal Traction - relieve back pain by naturally hanging upside down from your hips. Traction poses stretch and lengthen your spine after long days sitting or standing. 

  • Core Strength - build functional core strength in dozens of dynamic and fun postures.

  • Grip & Upper Body Strength - challenge your grip and upper body strength at your own level using just gravity and your own body weight.

  • Flexibility - Practice deep, passive backbends, splits, and hip openers. The Yoga Trapeze is used a supportive prop and gravity is used to safely pull you deeper into the pose.

  • Posterior Chain Strength - Strengthen and balance the muscles along the backside of your body that are used to support your spine.

Intro Trapeze Series

Join this series of 4 classes with the same small group. Introduction to Trapeze Yoga will start with the foundations of Trapeze and together we will build up to more advanced movements. Each session will be 60 minutes and will take place 4 consecutive weeks in a row. By the fourth class you will be more than ready to join any of the regularly scheduled Trapeze classes. 

*Note - you are not required to go through a series to join the regularly schedule Power Trapeze or Restorative Trapeze classes. The series is designed for those that prefer to learn in a small group setting with other beginners that are at the same level. 

This class can sometimes cause dizziness for those that are not used to being upside down or suffer from motion sickness. This class is not recommended for those that are pregnant, have high blood pressure, a heart condition, glaucoma, a recently fractured back or leg, osteoporosis, or hernias. Please consult with your doctor before joining a class if you have any health conditions or injuries that may put you at risk in this class. 

POWER TRAPEZE

In this 60 minute Total Trapeze experience, you can expect the first half of class to be a high intensity, low impact, full body strength training workout. The second half of class will be more relaxing as we move through body lengthening exercises and spinal traction inversions. Experience all the benefits of the Yoga Trapeze in this class. All levels of fitness are welcome to join, however if you are new to fitness or just getting back into working out, we recommend you start with the Intro Trapeze Series, Restorative Trapeze, or schedule a time to come in to try a couple inversions before committing to a full class.

Practice strength drills to build control in flips and how to transition between poses gracefully. Build strength and increase flexibility with body weight suspension training. Each week will have a "peak pose" theme with specific strength and stretch drills to prepare your body to achieve the pose. 

*Note - it is recommended that you have taken either an intro trapeze series or have been to 3 or more regularly scheduled trapeze classes. Please call, text or email if you have any questions.

RESTORATIVE TRAPEZE

Slow it down in this relaxing and restorative 60 minute class that uses gravity and the support of the Trapeze to safely and gently pull you into deep, full-body stretching and spinal traction with hanging inversions. Expect to hang upside down from your hips while practicing calming breathing exercises. This class ends with a 10 minute floating meditation in a Trapeze Cocoon. All levels of fitness are welcome to join, however if you are new to inversions or are not sure how your body will react to hanging upside down, we recommend you start with one of our Beginner Trapeze Classes, or schedule a time to come in to try a couple inversions before committing to a full class. Please contact us if you would like to schedule a free demo.
