Just because we aren’t kids anymore doesn’t mean we don’t want to have fun while we workout right? According to ACSM – American College of Sports Medicine; “Group exercise offers a variety of benefits you might miss out on if you choose to work out on your own. Some of the benefits include exposure to a social and fun environment, a safe and effectively designed workout, a consistent exercise schedule, an accountability factor for participating in exercise, and a workout that requires no prior exercise knowledge or experience.”
This circuit style workout will improve all components of fitness while having fun with other like-minded people. No previous experience is necessary, all you need is a good pair of indoor shoes. Options will be given for each and every participant to work at their own level.
There are 7 basic movement patterns that we need for a healthy body. While we hit most of these in a regular yoga class, there is one element that is completely missing, and that is the element of pulling. The Yoga Trapeze allows us to add pulling motion into our repertoire to help create balanced bodies. Yoga Trapeze is a fantastic tool to help us build our strength, increase our flexibility, and work on our balance. Specifically, you will see an increase in grip strength, upper body strength and core strength, all while having fun. Yoga Trapeze also offers spinal traction. Explained simply, spinal traction helps to create space between our vertebrae, which can help relieve tension and pain in the back. With the trapeze we can invert safely, to find the benefits of spinal traction. Traction alone will not cure back pain, but traction in conjunction with the strengthening and flexibility poses on the Trapeze will help you along your journey.
