TRX: An Effective Tool For Yoga

Fear of falling or getting injured can prevent performance of certain yoga poses but by balancing with the TRX, you’re somewhat supported—so it’s less scary.

 It’s time to add a new element of challenge to an old pose. After doing this for a while, you can build enough confidence to use the straps less and less and eventually come off them entirely.

TRX (short for total-body resistance exercise) suspension trainer is an effective tool for bodyweight moves. It 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.

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.

Getting into a pose with the TRX can help you learn to transfer your weight to the correct areas and get into each position correctly.

Yoga poses, like Crow, warrior III, headstand, handstand and backbends can be made easy with TRX.

Bakasana (Crow Pose)

  • Bending the knees slightly, bring your palms flat on the floor about shoulder distance apart.
  • Place the knees on the back of the upper arms.
  • Start to come forward, lifting the head as you go.
  • Take feet off the floor, one at a time, so you come to balance with both feet up.
  • Beginners: Try lifting one foot up at a time to get a feel for how far forward you need to bring yourself. Do not let your head drop. This will cause you to tip forward and lose balance.
