WHAT IS YOGA TRAPEZE?
Yoga Trapeze training which uses the Yoga Body Naturals Trapeze focuses on modified yoga postures allowing the participant to feel inverted suspension.

The trapeze is a swing-like contraption that allows you to hang from it in various ways You will experience benefits such as:
