Yoga Trapeze

Instant traction on your spine (within minutes)
Relief of back pain and possibly sciatica
Core strength development
Deeper Extension and 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.

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.

Enter: spinal traction.

Traction is a term used by orthopaedic 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. 


What is barre,

“Barre class is a workout technique inspired by elements of ballet, yoga, and Pilates, “It focuses on low-impact, high-intensity movements designed to strengthen your body in ways that few other workouts can.”

In addition to building strength, the full-body workout also develops agility and flexibility, You can just use just the Barre and your body weight to knock out rep after rep of muscle-burning moves, or incorporate resistance bands, sliders, ankle weights, free weights, exercise balls, and more.

What kind of workout is a barre class, then? 

Each barre class is designed to be a full-body workout, typically broken into different sections that focus on major muscle groups including the arms, legs, glutes, and core. 

“The muscles in each group are fatigued via small, targeted movements, high repetitions, and light weight or body resistance.

“Sections of class are also focused on stretching & flexibility

So, what are the benefits of barre class?

By now, you know that barre builds strength and muscle and does your flexibility a solid.

But the benefits don’t end there. Barre class also boosts endurance, improves balance, increases range of motion, and promotes better posture.

The result of many of these perks: It can support weight management, too.

So many of the moves you’ll work through in class get your abs and backfired up, you can bet you’ll sculpt a stronger, more defined core,

You don’t have to be a dancer to try barre,

That said, as with any type of fitness, don’t expect to master it after one go. You will utilize muscles you never knew you had “Barre is very beginner-friendly and adaptable to different skill sets and ability levels.”

What is Pilates?

The Pilates “method,” as it is now known, is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility, strength, and body awareness, without necessarily building bulk. The method is a series of controlled movements performed on specially designed spring-resistant exercise apparatus (the Reformer, the Cadillac, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, and the Wunda Chair) or on the floor (mat work), and the sessions are supervised by specially trained instructors. Pilates is resistance exercise, not aerobic (cardio), although the heart rate will certainly rise for a deconditioned individual. However, it’s closer to weight lifting than it is to jogging, biking, or other aerobic activities, and so you should consider it resistance exercise.

Two of the key elements of Pilates are core muscle strength and spinal alignment. The core musculature is loosely defined as the spine, abdomen, pelvis, hips, and the muscles that support these structures. Some of the main core muscles are the erector spinae (located in your back along your spine), the internal and external obliques (the sides of your abdomen), the transverse abdominis (located deep in your gut, this muscle pulls your belly button in toward your spine), the rectus abdominis (the “six-pack”), and hip flexors (in your pelvis and upper leg).

During a Pilates session you will continuously be prompted to concentrate deeply on your core muscles, as well as on your breath, the contraction of your muscles, and the quality (not quantity) of your movements. These are also key elements of Pilates, The objective is a coordination of mind, body, and spirit, something Joseph Pilates called “contrology.”


TRX training

TRX  is a form of full body workout involving suspension from specialised TRX training bands. 

One of the most celebrated benefits of TRX is its simplicity. Rather than relying on weights or other equipment, the exercises use your bodyweight as leverage,

TRX training is unique in the world of fitness because it allows you to change your centre of gravity at will, which is foremost on the list of advantages of suspension training.

*TRX is simple to perform*, and the exercises don’t place undue strain on the body. The benefit of using the body’s resistance to exercise is the most effective way to develop fitness, build muscle and work on flexibility.

*TRX evidently develops muscular strength,* but one of the primary advantages is how quickly and easily it conditions the muscles, An effective full-body workout, can be difficult to come by yet one of the major TRX benefits is that it will work the entire body with minimal fuss due to the system’s ability to shift the individual’s centre of gravity, especially when pendulum resistance is applied, and it therefore forces the muscles to work in tandem.  

The body becomes the object of resistance in any exercise, which means that even if you’re explicitly working on (for example) your core, you’ll also be providing other body parts with a workout too by enlisting the help of the stabilising muscles. 

*The TRX ensures that no area is excluded, which is one of the fundamental advantages of suspension training. * 

*Increased core strength is one of the main benefits of TRX training* TRX suspension training extends well beyond traditional core exercises because it forces your body to engage the area through every small movement.

*The biggest benefits* of this exercise method is the minimal impact that it has on your body.  Making TRX suitable for nearly everybody including beginners, the elderly and anyone who has suffered from an injury or has problems with their joints.
