June 8th, 2015

As yogis and fitness fanatics, we are always looking for different ways to enhance our yoga practice. TRX Yoga is a great way to build strength, increase flexibility and mobility to help improve your regular practice. Think of it as the ultimate support, like a block or strap, that allows you to deepen and improve your practice by helping you get into more advanced poses.

 

Here are a few simple poses demonstrated by certified TRX Yoga Instructor Alexis King, to increase strength on the TRX.

 

1. Backbends:

 

Pigeon Pose (Kapotasana)

 

 Wheel Pose w/ one leg extended (Urdhva Dhanurasana)

 

Upward Plank (Purvottanasana)

The TRX will assist you in creating a solid foundation for your backbend from the ground up. It acts as a suspension trainer to build strength and increase flexibility.

 

2. Arm Balances:

 

Crow Pose (Bakasana)

Guide your body to better form with the TRX for this pose, it’s great for strengthening the core without the fear of falling forward.

 

3. Inversions:
