Emayoga - Yoga Trapeze


The Yoga Trapeze is a powerful inversion tool, achieving deeper backbends, providing instant back and sciatica pain relief. The Yoga Trapeze is more effective than an 1-hour deep tissue massage or a multiple series of chiropractic adjustments.


It provides functional upper body and full body strength. It also strengthens and loosens the muscles surrounding the spine naturally - so you can eliminate the source of the pain both short

and long term.


A yoga trapeze is a swing-like apparatus that allows you to hang from it in various ways. It also acts as a tool in many other yoga postures and muscle strengthening techniques.

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.


A yoga practice that integrates the Yoga Trapeze, even if just once or twice per week, can include 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.

You’ll soon become addicted!



Common benefits reported by students:

• Instant traction on your spine (within minutes)

• Relief of back pain and possibly sciatica, inversion therapy is incredible for your back 

• Core strength development

• Deeper backbends, shoulder tension release

• Functional upper body and full body strength

• Improve your back bends: when you practice passive, inverted backbends on yoga trapeze,

you can hold yoga backbend poses much longer without fatigue.


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:


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 2-5x’s more injury prone than a flexible one. In this way, mobility and flexibility are essential for long-term spinal health.


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.


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.


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 up off the floor.


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. Most back pain specialists recommend a 3-pronged approach for long term back pain relief.

  • Traction:
    The yoga trapeze creates natural, body weight traction - the safest and most effective kind.


  • Back and Core Strengthening:
    For dynamic, deep core strength, nothing compares to inverted,
     gravity resistance training.


  • Flexibility: Just hang back, grab your ankles and chill out. This is the safest, deepest backbend you could ever do unassisted (and painless). You will make flexibility gains effortlessly.

What is Traction?

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

With age, inactivity, overuse, and imbalances from modern life, most adults have some degree of disk degeneration (osteoarthritis), and with each passing year, spinal care becomes more and more important


Which Vertebral Disks are Affected?

Your lower back is most susceptible to injury, with lumbar disks 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.

Spinal disk problems are so common, particularly as we age, that one needs to take action to reverse it. Your spine is like an accordion made up of vertebrae and disks, 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. Within minutes you can find remarkable relief.
