TRX – An Effective Tool for Yoga
Women Fitness|October 2021
Fear of falling or getting injured can prevent the 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 bodyweights 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.
