Yoga Swing Safety & Usage Guidelines
Using your YogiGym®
Best inversion height is for the aerial yoga swing to be hanging around your pubic bone just below the crest of the hip bones so that your head is free of the floor.
Mid thigh height is great for standing leg stretches and supported Downward Dogs.
Mid shin is wonderful for stretching the lumbar spine in reclining positions and partial inversions with shoulders resting on the floor.
How often and for how long can I invert?
For noticeable benefits we recommend inverting daily: best times are first thing in the morning, before meals and before bed-time. The Rule of Thumb is that you may invert for as long as you are comfortable but, we suggest that to begin with, you invert for only 1 – 3 minutes. Once you have grown accustomed to hanging upside down you can gradually increase the time. *Always be sure to wait for a minimum of 5 breaths or longer after an inversion before dismounting the YogiGym® yoga swing.
It is recommended that you consult with your physician before using the YogiGym®, especially if you have any preexisting health concerns.
