The Story of the Yoga Trapeze

Reinventing the Wheel

The exact origins of inversion sling yoga are unclear, but most prop-based practices can be traced back to late yoga master, BKS Iyengar. In his studio in Pune, India, Iyengar pioneered the use of dozens of yoga props that are now commonplace: blocks, straps, ropes, yoga chairs, and improvised yoga slings.

Iyengar himself appears in some of the earliest photos documenting inversion sling yoga practices. In the photos, he uses a thick rope sling and a stack of mats to practice passive backbends just like we do today on the Yoga Trapeze.

YOGABODY founder, Lucas Rockwood, first discovered inversion slings in 2006 while living in Thailand. Frustrated by the design and durability of early models, Lucas spent three years in development and eventually created a studio-quality device now known as the Yoga Trapeze. Today, the Yoga Trapeze is the most-popular inversion sling in the world used by over 200,000 students in 81 countries.

Modern manufacturing and materials have improved the quality and comfort of the device, but the fundamental concept remains the same. These simple slings allow you to practice new and different poses that can transform your practice, and in particular, your spinal health, core and upper body strength.

Gravity

Gravity is our Yoga Trapeze Class taught in the style of Yogabody. We journey through blocks of exercises utilizing the trapeze in various ways. In this class we focus on Posterior chain, deep core and arm strengthening exercises in our TRX style blocks. You will be rewarded for your hard work with amazing, long hold inversions in your rig...Your back will thank you! Dynamic poses such as Warrior and Dancer lengthen and strengthen like never before in the Trapeze. Back-bending will now be accessible as you are supported and cradled in the sling while Gravity does the rest. This revolutionary practice will fill in the gaps of Mat Yoga, which include pulling, rowing and grip strength exercises.

Gravity Fusion

If you love your yoga practice and want to take it to the next level, this class is for you! Our staff of unique and talented teachers will guide you through postures on your mat and fuse the practice with postures in your rig. Experience accessible inversions and long, deep back-bends while you are safely cradled in your rig. Headstands, Forearm Stands and handstands could be something that you can now incorporate into your practice with the help of the Yoga Trapeze. Open up in ways you never dreamed possible and drift off to other universes in the most divine Savasana you've ever experienced, as your sling gently rocks you into pure tranquility.

Gravity Melt

For those who want the Yoga Trapeze experience without the "upside downs." This signature ZoMo Yoga class is a fusion of a slow Vinyasa Flow and long, restorative Yin holds, cradled in and supported by your sling, which is set low to the ground. This is also a perfect addition to your regular Gravity and Fusion practice.

Hot Fireside Flow

Flow, sweat, detoxify, align and connect with your practice like never before in our infrared fireplace heated Hot classes. This Vinyasa Flow will leave you feeling alive and invigorated. Every class will be a new experience, and the style and personality of each unique and talented teacher will shine and inspire! The room is heated to about 90 degrees, so bring a towel and water, and be sure to hydrate well before class. This is primarily a mat class, and you will not perform trapeze inversions in this class, but the Yoga Trapeze straps will be integrated as a prop for ultimate alignment, and deepened, supported postures.

Gravity Kids

Children have an innate passion for seeing the world from different viewpoints, a love for swinging, adventure and deep belly laughs. If we could only turn back time and remember how we felt before someone broke the news that we couldn't fly. 
Your child will gain confidence, self esteem, self love and acceptance, empathy, compassion and appreciation for their inner fire, and the independence to keep that fire burning bright.
This class is a Yoga Trapeze class for kids age 7-12. We build strength, flexibility, focus, relaxation and coping skills through a journey through transformative postures and guided imagery designed to lead them to themselves. We cannot authentically love another until we unconditionally love ourselves!

Getting in touch is the first step on the path towards a healthier and happier lifestyle.

I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done!
