How Does it Work?

The Yoga Trapeze looks like a crazy torture device at first, but after you spend 7 minutes hanging upside down, you’ll become a convert.

Here’s the truth…

Dozens of activities can cause back pain, but the root problem is almost always the same: compression. When your vertebrae are squished into one another, it often irritates or pinches a nerve. So you can massage, sauna, and medicate yourself all day long, but you need to create more space in your vertebral column to relieve that pressure.


Benefits of Inversion Yoga


Common Benefits Reported by Students:

  • Instant traction on your spine (within minutes)

  • Relief of back pain and possibly sciatica

  • Core strength development

  • Deeper backbends, shoulder tension release

  • Functional upper body and full-body strength

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.

Enter: spinal traction.

Traction is a term used by orthopedic and chiropractic doctors to describe any treatment that pulls or lengthens the spine apart (as opposed to squishing it together). Strength and flexibility training are a crucial part of this process, but nothing is as immediate and obvious as hanging upside down.

Take a look at the illustration on the right.

In an ideal world, you’d have a healthy, shock-absorbing disc between each vertebra. But with age, inactivity, overuse, and imbalances from modern life, most adults have some degree of disc degeneration (osteoarthritis). So with each passing year, spinal care becomes increasingly important.

 Statistics show that 80% of the population will have a back pain issue at some point in their life, and here are the top reasons why:

Lack of Movement

Lack Of Flexibility in the shoulders, back muscles, hips, and tops of the legs can lead to injury and chronic pain. How does this happen? Working at a computer all day, commuting to work, lifting weights, and carrying children around the house all contribute to a “locked-up” spine. A locked-up spine is at least 2-5 times more injury-prone than a loose spine. In this way, mobility and flexibility are essential for long-term spinal health.

Lack Of Strength in your core leaves your spine unsupported and vulnerable. The abdominal muscles are actually spine supporting muscles, and a weak core means you’re at risk for injury. When you strengthen your core, you strengthening your spine—it’s that simple.

Stress & Tension in your muscles lead to dysfunctional movement patterns that cause back pain. Both physical and emotional stress often manifest as tension in your upper back, neck, and shoulders as you clench those muscles creating discomfort, pain and even injury.

Lack Of Movement in our day-to-day lives means that most of us simply do not twist, shake, rotate, or backbend nearly enough (if at all). As the saying goes, “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it,” and this is why people injure their back while doing simple things like lifting a box off the floor.


Which Vertebral Discs Are Affected?

Your lower back is most susceptible to injury, with lumbar discs 4 and 5 as typical “hot spots.” Still, injury can happen anywhere, as low down as the sacroiliac joint with pain that radiates into the bum and legs; or as high up as the cervical spine with neck pain that can be debilitating.

Maybe your discs are just inflamed; but maybe they’re bulging, herniated, thinning, compressed—or worse. This is not meant to scare you, but spinal disc problems are just so common, particularly as we age, that you need to take action to reverse it.

Remember this: Your spine is just like an accordion made up of vertebrae and discs, and the pain you experience is almost always the result of compression. If you release that compression, even just a millimeter, it can massively reduce your pain. Everyone’s body is different, of course, but I’m amazed at how many people find inversion therapy effective. In just seven minutes you can find remarkable relief.

What’s “Missing” from Mat-Based Yoga

Functional strength must include pushing, holding, and pulling. Mat-based yoga offers thousands of opportunities for both pushing and holding, but without lifting heavy things (like your body weight or a dumbbell), pull-motion is missing. As a result, many yoga students have poor grip strength, and weak wrists and shoulders.

It’s not uncommon for yoga students to suffer from wrist, shoulder, and upper back and neck pain, and it’s most often due to weakness, not poor alignment (as is often blamed by teachers).

So what does this have to do with the Yoga Trapeze? Everything. Most students initially get interested in the Yoga Trapeze for the spinal traction and passive backbends, but very quickly they learn that the functional pulling and grip strength is equally (if not more) valuable and truly “completes” yoga as a comprehensive fitness modality.
