Yoga is great and you can do it on the floor but if you have a yoga swing you will be able to to stretch in every conceivable position, vertically, horizontally and fully inverted. in the yoga swing you will utilize more brain neurons and muscle fibers than ANY ground or water exercise. The yoga swing allows you to hold yoga asana poses for longer supporting you so you don’t strain. It also relieves discomfort, can help you correct your breathing, assists you in developing stamina and will ensure your alignment in yoga asana is correct.


Fitness

Muscle strengthening exercises are counted in repetitions and sets. A repetition is 1 complete movement of an activity, like doing a sit-up. A set is a group of repetitions.

For each activity, try to do 8 to 12 repetitions in each set. Try to do at least 1 set of each muscle-strengthening activity. You’ll get even more benefits if you do 2 or 3 sets.

To get health benefits from muscle-strengthening activities, you should do them to the point where you struggle to complete another repetition.

Swing-fitness requires you to use more muscles than in a workout on the floor and is a lot more fun!

Because Swing fitness is free moving, while using it you challenge your balance and you really get in to the core muscles. The free movements in the air/feeling of flying adds a new dimension to the workout to which people come back to again and again as they have been challenged but it was still fun.

Swing fitness combines resistance training and yoga and could be used in conjunction with weights. The type of muscle strength exercises can include ones similar to those performed on other training systems such as the T.R.X only with the added advantages of inversion and its weight bearing ability.


Inversion

How many people suffer from back pain? It’s a very common complaint.
Sometimes if it is an old injury, damage to the spine can occur and you may not even know how or when you did it. It can be something you do everyday like driving, sitting at a desk, wearing high heels, lifting incorrectly, poor mattress, stress and many many more!

These types of activities and situations can cause weak muscles. Weak muscles become stiff, uncomfortable and restrict movement. Our lifestyle may not include the type of physical exercise we need to keep our back strong. It could be you just have occasional stiffness the type you live with, put to the back of your mind, ignore it, it’ll go away right? What can you do about it really anyway, who has the time and money to go to the chiropractor for every little twinge?
You might be unfortunate enough to suffer from more serious bouts of back pain.
Sciatica is caused by the spinal cord becoming compressed or trapped between vertebrae and is usually reoccurring. So painful are these times you find yourself at the doctors again and among other things, you’re probably prescribed some pretty strong painkillers. Sound familiar?

Gravity contributes to our back pain! Our back, hip and abdominal muscles hold us up and keep our spine and pelvis in line. Gravity pulls us down from the moment we sit up in the morning. We all know we wake up taller in the morning and seem to loose an inch or two during the day.
It is gravity that contributes to back pain in the first place but it also can be part of the cure.
Inversion therapy has been around for hundreds of years, hanging upside down allows gravity to realign your entire body, from your skeletal system to your organs.
Hanging upside down without a yoga swing would be difficult to say the least, however with a yoga swing, whatever age you are or level of flexibility you have, you can enjoy executing the various positions exercising and stretching virtually every muscle in the body!
