Benefits of Yoga Trapeze for Children
Suspending upside-down is inherently fun for most children (and adults who are still children at heart). Students are often attracted to the Yoga Trapeze because they want to do “tricks.” But the benefits are many:
- vestibular sensory input
- body awareness
- functional pulling and grip strength
- core strength and awarenes
A yoga practice or exercise routine that integrates The Yoga Trapeze, even if just once or twice per week, includes pushing, pulling, holding, twists, backbends, forward bends, hip opening and so much more. This variety of movement compliments a mat-based yoga practice to create a full-body fitness routine.
Benefits of Yoga Trapeze for Teens
As young children become tweens and teens, the lack of pulling, pushing, and core work in a typical school day creates weakness that limits athletic performance and health. Yoga trapeze practice builds strength and fitness and can also enhance confidence, support risk-taking and decision-making skills, and reduce stress.
Benefits of Yoga Trapeze for Adults
A huge number of adult yoga students suffer from discomfort or stiffness in the back, neck, or shoulders. Yoga Trapeze inversions counteract gravity, creating space and length in the spine though simple, gentle, bodyweight traction. Trapeze work also includes functional pulling and grip strength often missing in a mat-based yoga practice to create a full-body fitness routine.
