Yoga Trapeze

Yoga Trapeze is a Yoga inversion sling. Specifically, it’s a brand name for YOGABODY® yoga inversion slings. 

There are many differences between Yoga Trapezes and Aerial Yoga, and the small details make a huge difference. Aerial Yoga is amazing for someone with a performing arts background. For your average student with little-to-no movement background, it can be intimidating.


Students are often attracted to the Yoga Trapeze for spinal traction and passive backbends, but very quickly they learn that the functional pulling and grip strength offered compliments a mat-based yoga practice to create a

full-body fitness routine.

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. You can work your shoulders, calm your nerves, and leave class floating on air.
