In swing yoga we use the swing, which most closely resembles a hammock, to provide support in the therapeutic applications of yoga. For students that have a casual yoga practice the swing can be a valuable tool in enjoying the benefits yoga forms that may be accessible to them. For seasoned students or teachers the swing is helpful in illuminating the parts of our practice that could benefit from a new perspective on how our bodies respond to the forms of yoga, asana, that we are familiar with.
For all students swing yoga helps fine tune alignment and build core strength/stability. One aspect specific to this is the therapeutic benefits of inverting the body. Inversion therapy:
-improves circulation and detoxifies the body
-decompresses joints and spine
-nourishes the nervous system
Combined, swing yoga provides huge benefits to spinal health, which benefits mental wellness, leaving you revitalized and resilient.
