DO’S AND DON’TS

  • It is most comfortable to practice in the Trapeze with a well fitted, round/crew neck shirt or top paired with yoga pants/leggings or knee length shorts. This adds a layer of protection for your skin so it does not chafe as the fabric rubs against you.
  • Come on an empty stomach! We will be hanging upside down and moving in all sorts of directions as we practice. A full belly will not feel good at all.
  • Wait for the teacher before mounting the trapeze, or coming into the poses.
  • Don’t panic! The trapeze is weight tested to hold up to 600 pounds. It can hold you as long as you trust your weight in to it. Listen well to the leg locks your teacher will call out. This will hold you in the trapeze snugly.
  • Do not jump into the trapeze. Jumping causes the sling to swing, and you may miss your seat if you jump. Your teacher will show you how to get on the sling safely.
  • Should there be any problem with your trapeze, please inform the teacher immediately.
  • Please inform the teacher regarding any medical concerns or health issues you have BEFORE entering the room. This will give them a chance to inform you about your practice better.
