TRX YOGA FLOW
The rare and exciting artform known as suspension yoga aka TRX yoga flow!
Make a huge contribution to your stability, durability and all-around movement.
WHAT IS TRX?
TRX was invented by a Navy SEAL to hone balance, flexibility, strength and core stability simultaneously. The TRX suspension trainer is a versatile, portable hanging strap that can be taken on the go, set up in the home, or used in a yoga studio. The strap gives you leverage against gravity to assist you in difficult yoga poses while also working the strength and flexibility you need to achieve the pose in your regular yoga flows.
TRX FOR YOGA?
TRX is a good tool to help both beginner to advanced practitioners get more closely in touch with their bodies and explore different types of yoga poses. “For someone who has never done yoga or is newer to yoga, there are a ton of ways to use the strap to learn how to engage in the right places,”
If you’re in a yoga class and the instructor always tells you to draw your shoulder blades down, you may not understand what that means or understand how to make that happen. You can use the strap as feedback.
For the more experienced yogi, a TRX strap can introduce more play into your practice, as it assists you in safely working toward challenging poses like inversions, arm balances and backbends that may seem scary or complex in a normal yoga studio setting. With your feet in the straps, you can learn which muscles you need to engage in a pose without supporting all of your bodyweight or worrying about falling. This kind of aid in alignment lets your body learn how a pose should feel, which can actually rewire your brain and tone muscles in an unexpected way.
Another added bonus to TRX training? A boost in confidence. Intermediate and advanced yoga poses like Crow, Handstand and backbends can be scary at first. The security of the anchored strap makes it easier to face those fears and feel the possibility.
