Students are often attracted to the Yoga Trapeze for spinal traction and passive backbends, but very quickly they learn that the functional pulling and grip strength offered compliments a mat-based yoga practice to create a full-body fitness routine.
A yoga practice or exercise routine that integrates The Yoga Trapeze, even if just once or twice per week, includes 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.
80% of the World Has Back Pain?
As a novice yoga student, I pushed too hard too fast and suffered from lower back pain continuously for about two years. At one point, the pain was so bad I couldn’t get out of bed—and that’s when I had to admit I was acting like an idiot and causing myself harm. Like me, some people push too hard too fast—while many more are completely sedentary and spend all day sitting in chairs. Both extremes are problematic.
Chances are, you’re not as reckless with your spinal health as I was. But since you’re reading this now, I assume you either have a stiff back, a sore back—or both! And if that’s the case, I’m fairly certain I can help you.
The Yoga Trapeze is the most powerful at-home yoga inversion tool ever created. Hang it from a doorway inside your house or outside from a beam or swing set. Setup is fast and simple, and you’ll feel the results in minutes. 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:
Lack Of Flexibility 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 2-5 times more injury-prone than a loose spine. In this way, mobility and flexibility are essential for long-term spinal health.
Lack Of Strength 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.
Stress & Tension 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.
Lack Of Movement 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 off the floor.
The Yoga Trapeze looks like a crazy torture device at first, but after you spend 7 minutes hanging upside down, you’ll become a convert.
Here’s the truth…
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.
Enter: spinal traction.
Traction is a term used by orthopedic and chiropractic doctors to describe any treatment that pulls or lengthens the spine apart (as opposed to squishing it together). Strength and flexibility training are a crucial part of this process, but nothing is as immediate and obvious as hanging upside down.
Take a look at the illustration on the right.
In an ideal world, you’d have a healthy, shock-absorbing disc between each vertebra. But with age, inactivity, overuse, and imbalances from modern life, most adults have some degree of disc degeneration (osteoarthritis). So with each passing year, spinal care becomes increasingly important.
Which Vertebral Discs Are Affected?
Your lower back is most susceptible to injury, with lumbar discs 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.
Maybe your discs are just inflamed; but maybe they’re bulging, herniated, thinning, compressed—or worse. This is not meant to scare you, but spinal disc problems are just so common, particularly as we age, that you need to take action to reverse it.
Here’s a funny story…
When my back pain was at its worst, I was so desperate to get traction that I used to hang off the edge of my bed, drape my body over chairs, and hook my feet onto the edge of the door in a handstand pose in a pathetic attempt to get some opposing force between my head and my toes (aka traction!).
Remember this: Your spine is just like an accordion made up of vertebrae and discs, 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. In just seven minutes you can find remarkable relief.
3 Steps to Heal Your Spine
Any back specialist worth his or her credential will prescribe a 3-pronged approach for long term back pain relief: traction, strength, and flexibility.
You and I both know that you can pop two Advil and get rid of most pain—but that’s not natural, and that’s certainly not a long term, healthy solution (ulcers anyone?). So what do you do?
Hang for 7 minutes, do some flying press-up (awesome core and upper body workout), hang in an inverted full wheel, and then call it a day. With rehabilitation and physical therapy, a small time commitment daily is what makes the biggest difference, so commit to 10 minutes a day of practice, and you’ll quickly see results.
But I’ll warn you now, this thing is addicting!
It really does feel that good.
Q: “Do I Need Some Special Training to Use This?”
Getting started is so easy. I’ve put people of all ages, sizes and background into the Yoga Trapeze, and within 2 minutes, they’re totally hooked. Stiff people, old people, sore people—bring it on!
Along with your order, you’ll get a FREE Video Series and Pose Chart that will walk you through the basic poses along with variations and modifications for all levels. Most days, I just do 2-3 poses. That’s all I need. But at least once per week, I’ll do a 45-60 minute flowing sequence which is amazing. Of course, you can do all kinds of funky, crazy moves, but if you’re like me, you’re not trying to be in the circus—you just want your back to be limber and pain-free.
What’s “Missing” from Mat-Based Yoga
Functional strength must include pushing, holding, and pulling. Mat-based yoga offers thousands of opportunities for both pushing and holding, but without lifting heavy things (like your body weight or a dumbbell), pull-motion is missing. As a result, many yoga students have poor grip strength, and weak wrists and shoulders.
It’s not uncommon for yoga students to suffer from wrist, shoulder, and upper back and neck pain, and it’s most often due to weakness, not poor alignment (as is often blamed by teachers).
So what does this have to do with the Yoga Trapeze? Everything. 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.
Where Do I Hang My Yoga Trapeze?
I am not great with building or installing things around the house. I always break things and have to hire a handyman for just about everything, but I’ve successfully installed the Yoga Trapeze in two different apartments and in my office all by myself. So if I can install this thing, believe me, you can too.
Swing it over an exposed beam (in a lofted room, patio, or garage)
Hang from a swing set/playground (easiest of all)
Tie it to a tree branch
Hang from a piece of gym equipment (like a chin-up bar)
Believe me, the last thing I want is some DIY home improvement project; but honestly, this is a piece of cake. If you’re hooking into a doorframe or ceiling stud, you’ll need a drill and some heavyweight hooks (our ceiling hooks for example). Both are extremely affordable and easy to install.
And remember, if you’re hanging from a swing set or a tree, you don’t need any setup at all. You’ll be ready to swing like a monkey two minutes after your Yoga Trapeze arrives.
Can Kids Use This?
Yes, both my kids love The Yoga Trapeze, and my daughter had her 11th birthday party in my yoga studio (we have 20 Trapezes). She comes running home from school saying, “Daddy, swinging time!” And her friends were floored when they saw she had a giant swing inside the house. For the kids, The Yoga Trapeze is a dream come true, and the two sets of handles means your child holds onto the shorter set while you pull them with the longer set… it’s a lot of fun.

The number one problem with our modern diet is, without a doubt, sugar in all its various forms. I’m talking about bread, cookies, crackers, corn chips, sweets, and even apple and orange juice. Our bodies need sugar to be healthy, but most people are eating 300-500 grams per day—way too much. When you eat too much sugar, you gain weight, you have hormonal problems, and all your best efforts in other areas of your health are wasted. The good news is that when you get your sugar under control, the cascade of health benefits is truly remarkable, and by focusing on this one point of high leverage, it makes it so much easier to succeed.

“I could use the Yoga Trapeze for hours.”
I borrowed a friend’s Yoga Trapeze and it was an awesome experience. It gave me such a feeling of lightness without being dizzy. Almost instant relief from backache and a feeling of the spine decompressing. I just wanted to stay upside down for hours it was so relaxing.
– Bryan Bender (yoga student)
“The Yoga Trapeze is amazing.”
Like many others, I started yoga as a treatment for a back injury and fell in love with it. When I moved to another town I continued classes but really missed hanging upside down. So I just had to have the Yoga Trapeze. I use it whenever my back becomes too painful to enjoy life. I have found an added bonus from hanging in the trapeze that I don’t get from other inversions. It completely stills my mind for hours afterwards. So now if the business in my head gets beyond control, upside down I go. It’s amazing.
– Heather (yoga student)
“I highly recommend the Yoga Trapeze.”
This product is really well made and worth the cost. It is not only fun to use, but very safe and effective to go deep into an asana. I highly recommend it.
– Stephen Jen (yoga student)
“Wonderful for practicing backbends!”
I (easily) installed the Yoga Trapeze in my studio and it’s so great for practicing inverted postures to release the spine. It allows me to stay longer in inverted postures than on the floor. It’s also been really wonderful for practicing supported backbends, and strength building for the upper body. And just plain fun to use!
The Yoga Trapeze has been featured in yoga magazines, newspapers, television news programs, and is endorsed by international yoga celebrities around the world.

Not Just Another Yoga Prop…
I’m the kind of guy who practices on an old, thin, worn-out mat. I don’t have any fancy yoga clothes—and I hardly ever practice with props. So honestly, I’m not the type of person to recommend a bunch of gizmos for your practices since they’re typically just distracting.
The Yoga Trapeze, however, is the one BIG exception. It’s a phenomenal, simple tool that every serious yoga student should have. Seven minutes upside down—decompress your spine, increase your flexibility, and tone your core.
Let’s get inverted!
