Yoga Trapeze / Yoga Swing – Setting & Hanging Instructions

1
00:00:08,450 –> 00:00:11,070
so hello this is Lucas Rockwood with

2
00:00:11,070 –> 00:00:12,960
Yoga body Naturals and the yoga trapeze

3
00:00:12,960 –> 00:00:15,389
I’m going to show you how to set up the

4
00:00:15,389 –> 00:00:17,609
yoga trapeze so it comes in a bag like

5
00:00:17,609 –> 00:00:20,400
this and you open up the bag and inside

6
00:00:20,400 –> 00:00:22,230
the bag the first thing you’ll find are

7
00:00:22,230 –> 00:00:24,240
the ropes now there’s lots of different

8
00:00:24,240 –> 00:00:26,820
ways to mount and hang the trapeze but

9
00:00:26,820 –> 00:00:28,470
these ropes are one of the more common

10
00:00:28,470 –> 00:00:31,019
ways to use it and you’ll see on one end

11
00:00:31,019 –> 00:00:33,270
of the rope there’s a metal clip and on

12
00:00:33,270 –> 00:00:34,649
the other end of the rope there’s just a

13
00:00:34,649 –> 00:00:37,290
knot the more classic way to hang this

14
00:00:37,290 –> 00:00:39,780
is over a beam or from a pole like we’ll

15
00:00:39,780 –> 00:00:41,940
show you and then one of the carabiners

16
00:00:41,940 –> 00:00:44,340
goes through the metal hook and one of

17
00:00:44,340 –> 00:00:45,989
them goes through the knotted rope but

18
00:00:45,989 –> 00:00:47,670
there’s many other ways and we’ll take a

19
00:00:47,670 –> 00:00:49,680
look at it so we have one rope for each

20
00:00:49,680 –> 00:00:53,190
sides of the trapeze so next let’s take

21
00:00:53,190 –> 00:00:58,410
a look at the main trapeze components so

22
00:00:58,410 –> 00:01:00,210
the first component are the trapeze

23
00:01:00,210 –> 00:01:02,399
handles so on each handle there’s a

24
00:01:02,399 –> 00:01:04,110
carabiner and sometimes you need to

25
00:01:04,110 –> 00:01:06,180
slide the material down on the carabiner

26
00:01:06,180 –> 00:01:07,560
and then what you need to do is adjust

27
00:01:07,560 –> 00:01:09,930
the handles just so they come flat down

28
00:01:09,930 –> 00:01:11,580
you do that just by sliding the fabric

29
00:01:11,580 –> 00:01:13,080
through so they’re kind of flattened out

30
00:01:13,080 –> 00:01:15,210
for shipping and then you slide the

31
00:01:15,210 –> 00:01:17,220
handle through and from here you’ll find

32
00:01:17,220 –> 00:01:19,710
a clip and this helps you adjust to make

33
00:01:19,710 –> 00:01:21,479
it more of a handle and less of a strap

34
00:01:21,479 –> 00:01:24,030
and then from here we also have the

35
00:01:24,030 –> 00:01:26,009
bottom handle and we’ll do exactly the

36
00:01:26,009 –> 00:01:27,540
same thing again sometimes from shipping

37
00:01:27,540 –> 00:01:29,159
they just need a little bit of adjusting

38
00:01:29,159 –> 00:01:30,689
because they’re flattened out we’re

39
00:01:30,689 –> 00:01:31,950
going to lower the clips down to make

40
00:01:31,950 –> 00:01:33,509
that into a handle and now we have one

41
00:01:33,509 –> 00:01:35,970
two three handles I’m going to lay this

42
00:01:35,970 –> 00:01:39,180
down on the side on the other side I

43
00:01:39,180 –> 00:01:40,590
have the same thing and again you see I

44
00:01:40,590 –> 00:01:42,450
have the carabiner here I’m going to

45
00:01:42,450 –> 00:01:43,680
hold at the top of the carabiner and

46
00:01:43,680 –> 00:01:46,320
pull down on the fabric and I’m going to

47
00:01:46,320 –> 00:01:47,939
again adjust these handles because

48
00:01:47,939 –> 00:01:51,079
they’re flattened for shipping

49
00:01:57,770 –> 00:01:59,700
good now I’m going to pull down the

50
00:01:59,700 –> 00:02:01,259
clips to make this into a nice little

51
00:02:01,259 –> 00:02:03,119
handle and I’m going to pull down the

52
00:02:03,119 –> 00:02:06,149
clips on this one adjust this handle

53
00:02:06,149 –> 00:02:11,280
here great and then again I’m going to

54
00:02:11,280 –> 00:02:13,349
lay this on the side so these are the

55
00:02:13,349 –> 00:02:15,150
two handles for the trapeze that go on

56
00:02:15,150 –> 00:02:22,019
either side of the main sling next I

57
00:02:22,019 –> 00:02:24,180
take the main sling of the yoga trapeze

58
00:02:24,180 –> 00:02:26,160
now something that sometimes confuses

59
00:02:26,160 –> 00:02:28,049
people as they see the the ring here

60
00:02:28,049 –> 00:02:29,730
they’re not sure what to do this is just

61
00:02:29,730 –> 00:02:32,099
for shipping and we can adjust this very

62
00:02:32,099 –> 00:02:34,349
very easily you just slide the fabric

63
00:02:34,349 –> 00:02:38,670
around the carabiner and again we want

64
00:02:38,670 –> 00:02:40,500
to find the top of the carabiner and we

65
00:02:40,500 –> 00:02:43,019
just slide the fabric around and down

66
00:02:43,019 –> 00:02:45,870
and when you hang the the trapeze it

67
00:02:45,870 –> 00:02:47,519
also finds its own way down into a

68
00:02:47,519 –> 00:02:50,340
comfortable place but essentially we’re

69
00:02:50,340 –> 00:02:52,680
just sliding the fabric around to fit on

70
00:02:52,680 –> 00:02:57,299
the base of the carabiner perfect so

71
00:02:57,299 –> 00:02:59,220
this is one side and again you can see

72
00:02:59,220 –> 00:03:01,079
it Clips open and this is what we use to

73
00:03:01,079 –> 00:03:04,230
clip then we’ll take the other side this

74
00:03:04,230 –> 00:03:06,530
is the other side of the main sling and

75
00:03:06,530 –> 00:03:09,030
then right here you’ll see I have the

76
00:03:09,030 –> 00:03:11,220
sling itself now when you see the tag

77
00:03:11,220 –> 00:03:14,310
this is the outside of the sling and on

78
00:03:14,310 –> 00:03:16,230
the inside there is a warning label so

79
00:03:16,230 –> 00:03:17,819
the tag goes on the outside warning

80
00:03:17,819 –> 00:03:20,010
label goes on the inside so this is our

81
00:03:20,010 –> 00:03:22,590
two-tone orange color and the two-tone

82
00:03:22,590 –> 00:03:25,530
Orange the lighter orange is on the

83
00:03:25,530 –> 00:03:27,120
inside and the darker orange is on the

84
00:03:27,120 –> 00:03:29,669
outside so I’m just going to lay this

85
00:03:29,669 –> 00:03:31,200
out on the ground so you can see what it

86
00:03:31,200 –> 00:03:33,810
looks like again you see the darker

87
00:03:33,810 –> 00:03:35,790
orange is on the outside of the sling

88
00:03:35,790 –> 00:03:38,790
seat I have my carabiner hooks right

89
00:03:38,790 –> 00:03:40,230
here that we’re going to use to clip in

90
00:03:40,230 –> 00:03:42,450
I have both my handles ready to go on

91
00:03:42,450 –> 00:03:44,430
the sides here and now we’re going to

92
00:03:44,430 –> 00:03:46,680
show you how to use these ropes to hang

93
00:03:46,680 –> 00:03:49,799
the trapeze from either your ceiling

94
00:03:49,799 –> 00:03:52,139
from an exposed beam from a metal pole

95
00:03:52,139 –> 00:03:54,780
like a children’s swing set or any other

96
00:03:54,780 –> 00:03:56,459
exposed beam that you might find in your

97
00:03:56,459 –> 00:03:59,269
house or in your garage

98
00:04:01,440 –> 00:04:04,090
so now I’m going to show you how to hang

99
00:04:04,090 –> 00:04:06,190
the ropes from a beam I’m going to hang

100
00:04:06,190 –> 00:04:07,900
them on a beam but the exact same thing

101
00:04:07,900 –> 00:04:09,670
applies whether you’re using a

102
00:04:09,670 –> 00:04:12,190
children’s swing set and exposed wooden

103
00:04:12,190 –> 00:04:13,930
beam in your garage or even a tree

104
00:04:13,930 –> 00:04:15,850
branch so I have a ladder here because

105
00:04:15,850 –> 00:04:17,589
my beam is actually really really high

106
00:04:17,589 –> 00:04:19,450
in many cases they’re not that high

107
00:04:19,450 –> 00:04:21,339
they’re about six or nine feet off the

108
00:04:21,339 –> 00:04:23,350
ground really anything about six feet

109
00:04:23,350 –> 00:04:25,090
can work so I’m going to take these I’m

110
00:04:25,090 –> 00:04:30,730
going to go up my ladder and you’ll see

111
00:04:30,730 –> 00:04:32,919
I have two different ropes here and what

112
00:04:32,919 –> 00:04:34,510
I want to do is put the rope over the

113
00:04:34,510 –> 00:04:36,580
beam to start with I’m going to put the

114
00:04:36,580 –> 00:04:38,560
beam put the rope over the beam and I’m

115
00:04:38,560 –> 00:04:39,820
going to put the rear of the rope over

116
00:04:39,820 –> 00:04:42,340
the beam now again if you’re mounting

117
00:04:42,340 –> 00:04:44,800
into the ceiling perhaps with screwed

118
00:04:44,800 –> 00:04:47,169
hooks or a bolt the exact same thing

119
00:04:47,169 –> 00:04:48,730
applies just put your rope through the

120
00:04:48,730 –> 00:04:50,350
hook or through the bolt and you’ll get

121
00:04:50,350 –> 00:04:52,870
the exact same effect great now I have

122
00:04:52,870 –> 00:04:54,430
the option number one is right here

123
00:04:54,430 –> 00:04:56,830
where I can put one of my carabiners

124
00:04:56,830 –> 00:04:59,050
through the metal hook and one of them

125
00:04:59,050 –> 00:05:00,760
through the knotted rope and this is a

126
00:05:00,760 –> 00:05:02,860
very good way to hang and in most houses

127
00:05:02,860 –> 00:05:05,200
this is how we hang the trapeze we have

128
00:05:05,200 –> 00:05:07,419
one carabiner going through the hook one

129
00:05:07,419 –> 00:05:08,860
of them going through the knotted rope

130
00:05:08,860 –> 00:05:11,590
and then the trapeze hangs from here now

131
00:05:11,590 –> 00:05:13,479
in this case I have a very very high

132
00:05:13,479 –> 00:05:15,820
beam this beam is about three or

133
00:05:15,820 –> 00:05:18,010
three-plus meters off the ground so what

134
00:05:18,010 –> 00:05:19,479
I’m going to do here is I’m actually

135
00:05:19,479 –> 00:05:21,100
going to take the metal hook and I’m

136
00:05:21,100 –> 00:05:22,990
going to put it through the knot and I’m

137
00:05:22,990 –> 00:05:25,090
going to extend the robe this way let me

138
00:05:25,090 –> 00:05:26,950
show you again on this side so I’m going

139
00:05:26,950 –> 00:05:28,780
to take the metal hook I’m going to put

140
00:05:28,780 –> 00:05:30,700
it through the knot and I’m going to

141
00:05:30,700 –> 00:05:33,430
slide it down so now I have the two

142
00:05:33,430 –> 00:05:35,860
hooks hanging it’s just as strong either

143
00:05:35,860 –> 00:05:37,510
way whether you have a double rope or a

144
00:05:37,510 –> 00:05:39,790
single rope it’s just fine now what I’m

145
00:05:39,790 –> 00:05:41,020
going to do is figure out the distance

146
00:05:41,020 –> 00:05:42,820
they should be apart the easiest way to

147
00:05:42,820 –> 00:05:44,410
do this is put your arms at your sides

148
00:05:44,410 –> 00:05:46,330
like this with your arms facing down a

149
00:05:46,330 –> 00:05:48,430
ninety degree angle and then flip your

150
00:05:48,430 –> 00:05:50,380
arms up and right where your arms come

151
00:05:50,380 –> 00:05:52,930
that’s about how wide apart you want the

152
00:05:52,930 –> 00:05:55,360
trapeze ropes to be great now from here

153
00:05:55,360 –> 00:05:58,240
I have two hooks ready to get hooked up

154
00:05:58,240 –> 00:05:59,740
with a trapeze so let me show you how

155
00:05:59,740 –> 00:06:02,740
that looks good so here’s my yoga

156
00:06:02,740 –> 00:06:04,930
trapeze just like we set it up before I

157
00:06:04,930 –> 00:06:07,870
have one set of three handles on the

158
00:06:07,870 –> 00:06:09,400
right and I have one set of three

159
00:06:09,400 –> 00:06:10,729
handles on the left and

160
00:06:10,729 –> 00:06:12,710
I have my Maine sling here in the middle

161
00:06:12,710 –> 00:06:14,449
so the first thing that I’m going to do

162
00:06:14,449 –> 00:06:15,979
is I’m going to connect the Maine sling

163
00:06:15,979 –> 00:06:17,839
the main sling first I’m going to open

164
00:06:17,839 –> 00:06:20,300
up the carabiner and I’m going to put

165
00:06:20,300 –> 00:06:23,240
the carabiner through the hook and then

166
00:06:23,240 –> 00:06:25,099
I’m going to hook the handle on that

167
00:06:25,099 –> 00:06:25,969
side as well

168
00:06:25,969 –> 00:06:28,189
exact same process I just open up the

169
00:06:28,189 –> 00:06:30,669
carabiner and I put it through the hook

170
00:06:30,669 –> 00:06:32,870
and now what I want to do is just make

171
00:06:32,870 –> 00:06:35,870
sure that my sling the seeded part of

172
00:06:35,870 –> 00:06:38,509
the trapeze is open and it’s not twisted

173
00:06:38,509 –> 00:06:41,419
and this looks just fine and I’m going

174
00:06:41,419 –> 00:06:43,279
to open up the carabiner I’m going to

175
00:06:43,279 –> 00:06:47,180
put through the hook and I’m going to do

176
00:06:47,180 –> 00:06:48,620
the same thing with the handle I’m going

177
00:06:48,620 –> 00:06:50,240
to open up the carabiner I’m going to

178
00:06:50,240 –> 00:06:53,659
put through the hook and so it’s really

179
00:06:53,659 –> 00:06:54,469
that simple

180
00:06:54,469 –> 00:06:57,139
now I have both sets of hooks on the

181
00:06:57,139 –> 00:06:59,270
outside I have the Maine sling on the

182
00:06:59,270 –> 00:07:01,460
inside and their hooks securely with the

183
00:07:01,460 –> 00:07:03,800
carabiner to the metal ring now if you

184
00:07:03,800 –> 00:07:05,659
don’t have a metal ring it doesn’t

185
00:07:05,659 –> 00:07:07,610
matter at all if you just use a knotted

186
00:07:07,610 –> 00:07:09,710
rope that’s just fine we added the metal

187
00:07:09,710 –> 00:07:11,419
ring because it extends the life of the

188
00:07:11,419 –> 00:07:13,789
rope by many many years but if you don’t

189
00:07:13,789 –> 00:07:16,129
have a metal ring it’s perfectly safe to

190
00:07:16,129 –> 00:07:17,270
use the rope

191
00:07:17,270 –> 00:07:18,919
without the ring so if you’re using your

192
00:07:18,919 –> 00:07:20,539
own rope which I’ll show you in a moment

193
00:07:20,539 –> 00:07:22,819
feel free to use it without a metal ring

194
00:07:22,819 –> 00:07:25,810
it’s no problem at all

195
00:07:28,389 –> 00:07:31,000
so here you see the yoga trapeze fully

196
00:07:31,000 –> 00:07:33,669
mounted we have one set of handles on

197
00:07:33,669 –> 00:07:36,669
the side we have another set of handles

198
00:07:36,669 –> 00:07:39,129
on the other side we have the main sling

199
00:07:39,129 –> 00:07:41,169
in the center now here you can again

200
00:07:41,169 –> 00:07:42,729
just do a double check so you can open

201
00:07:42,729 –> 00:07:44,889
up the sling and make sure that there’s

202
00:07:44,889 –> 00:07:47,500
no twists if there’s any twists just

203
00:07:47,500 –> 00:07:49,840
unclick the carabiner and flip it around

204
00:07:49,840 –> 00:07:52,840
to relieve the twists now all throughout

205
00:07:52,840 –> 00:07:54,639
the trapeze you’ll see these plastic

206
00:07:54,639 –> 00:07:57,460
Clips these are used to reduce the size

207
00:07:57,460 –> 00:08:00,939
of the seat and also to focus the

208
00:08:00,939 –> 00:08:03,279
handles and so you can lower down the

209
00:08:03,279 –> 00:08:05,889
clips to make a smaller handle or to

210
00:08:05,889 –> 00:08:08,800
make a smaller seat and in general we

211
00:08:08,800 –> 00:08:11,139
like to have a small seat and small

212
00:08:11,139 –> 00:08:12,849
handles because it makes it easier to

213
00:08:12,849 –> 00:08:14,590
grab the handles and when we’re doing

214
00:08:14,590 –> 00:08:15,969
the trappings it’ll make it much much

215
00:08:15,969 –> 00:08:17,610
easier and more comfortable on your bum

216
00:08:17,610 –> 00:08:19,960
so the most common question we get is

217
00:08:19,960 –> 00:08:22,960
how high should my trapeze be the truth

218
00:08:22,960 –> 00:08:24,669
is you can practice here you can

219
00:08:24,669 –> 00:08:26,710
practice way up in the air some people

220
00:08:26,710 –> 00:08:28,539
also practice just a few inches off the

221
00:08:28,539 –> 00:08:30,759
floor there’s lots of different ways but

222
00:08:30,759 –> 00:08:32,769
most people we want to be right about at

223
00:08:32,769 –> 00:08:35,320
the navel or the Beltline right at the

224
00:08:35,320 –> 00:08:36,880
base of the trapeze so if you look right

225
00:08:36,880 –> 00:08:39,039
now this one’s a little bit too high for

226
00:08:39,039 –> 00:08:41,110
me and I need to lower it down about six

227
00:08:41,110 –> 00:08:43,599
inches what happened is my beam that I’m

228
00:08:43,599 –> 00:08:45,910
using here is very very high in most

229
00:08:45,910 –> 00:08:48,070
homes is actually the opposite in most

230
00:08:48,070 –> 00:08:50,050
homes people need to actually shorten it

231
00:08:50,050 –> 00:08:52,180
to get a little more length but if you

232
00:08:52,180 –> 00:08:53,829
are hanging from a tree or a high

233
00:08:53,829 –> 00:08:55,899
exposed beam I’m going to show you how

234
00:08:55,899 –> 00:08:58,660
to extend the length of the trapeze very

235
00:08:58,660 –> 00:09:00,670
very quickly and easily so it’s right

236
00:09:00,670 –> 00:09:02,740
about that waist level or if you want to

237
00:09:02,740 –> 00:09:04,510
be even more conservative you can go

238
00:09:04,510 –> 00:09:06,160
even down to your knees so we’ll take a

239
00:09:06,160 –> 00:09:09,180
break and I’ll show you how that works

240
00:09:12,140 –> 00:09:15,120
so here I have some ropes that I bought

241
00:09:15,120 –> 00:09:16,920
from the hardware store now for most of

242
00:09:16,920 –> 00:09:18,810
you you’ll never need to do this but

243
00:09:18,810 –> 00:09:19,890
what I need to do is I have a really

244
00:09:19,890 –> 00:09:21,720
high beam and I’d actually like to lower

245
00:09:21,720 –> 00:09:24,120
my trapeze down about six inches so I

246
00:09:24,120 –> 00:09:25,740
went ahead and bought some rope at the

247
00:09:25,740 –> 00:09:27,810
hardware store everybody’s house is

248
00:09:27,810 –> 00:09:29,400
different so it’s impossible to know how

249
00:09:29,400 –> 00:09:31,170
much rope you’ll need but I went and

250
00:09:31,170 –> 00:09:32,940
bought one that would fit the space that

251
00:09:32,940 –> 00:09:34,740
I have and so what I did is I bought a

252
00:09:34,740 –> 00:09:36,750
big roll of really strong nylon rope

253
00:09:36,750 –> 00:09:38,880
it’s very inexpensive easy to find

254
00:09:38,880 –> 00:09:41,010
anywhere and then I doubled it up and

255
00:09:41,010 –> 00:09:43,320
tied knots at either end so I tied a

256
00:09:43,320 –> 00:09:45,360
knot down here and then I tied a knot

257
00:09:45,360 –> 00:09:47,220
the other end I made a loop at the other

258
00:09:47,220 –> 00:09:50,220
end now inside that loop I went and took

259
00:09:50,220 –> 00:09:52,680
the metal ring that was in my black rope

260
00:09:52,680 –> 00:09:55,350
and I inserted it here you don’t have to

261
00:09:55,350 –> 00:09:57,090
do this this just extends the life of

262
00:09:57,090 –> 00:09:58,920
your rope it’ll last for years and years

263
00:09:58,920 –> 00:10:01,170
without the metal ring but I had one so

264
00:10:01,170 –> 00:10:03,060
I went ahead and did it so now I have a

265
00:10:03,060 –> 00:10:06,030
place to hook my carabiner when I put it

266
00:10:06,030 –> 00:10:07,830
up I did the exact same thing with this

267
00:10:07,830 –> 00:10:09,900
one and now let me show you how I hang

268
00:10:09,900 –> 00:10:12,030
it right next to my black ropes good so

269
00:10:12,030 –> 00:10:13,620
in this case I’m just going to go over

270
00:10:13,620 –> 00:10:17,070
the pipe here or over your beam or over

271
00:10:17,070 –> 00:10:19,050
your pole whatever you’re using and now

272
00:10:19,050 –> 00:10:21,750
I have a place to hook my carabiner so

273
00:10:21,750 –> 00:10:24,930
I’m going to go ahead and unhook from my

274
00:10:24,930 –> 00:10:27,060
original setup and I’m going to hook the

275
00:10:27,060 –> 00:10:29,970
main sling into my new setup so first I

276
00:10:29,970 –> 00:10:32,580
go through the loop and then I go

277
00:10:32,580 –> 00:10:34,560
through the knotted rope so now it’s

278
00:10:34,560 –> 00:10:35,880
hanging here like this and now I’m going

279
00:10:35,880 –> 00:10:38,010
to take the handle off on this side and

280
00:10:38,010 –> 00:10:39,960
again I’m going to go first through the

281
00:10:39,960 –> 00:10:41,970
hook and then I’m going to go through

282
00:10:41,970 –> 00:10:45,210
the knotted rope second and what I have

283
00:10:45,210 –> 00:10:47,460
here now is I’ve effectively lowered the

284
00:10:47,460 –> 00:10:49,650
swing height very very easily now while

285
00:10:49,650 –> 00:10:50,910
I’m up here I’ll go ahead and throw this

286
00:10:50,910 –> 00:10:53,280
other one over great so again you can

287
00:10:53,280 –> 00:10:54,540
just see this from another angle it’s

288
00:10:54,540 –> 00:10:56,100
the exact same setup but I have my rope

289
00:10:56,100 –> 00:10:57,930
doubled I’m going to put the carabiner

290
00:10:57,930 –> 00:10:59,610
through the metal hook and then through

291
00:10:59,610 –> 00:11:03,110
the knot I’m going to hold on here

292
00:11:05,950 –> 00:11:08,390
so I put the carabiner through the hook

293
00:11:08,390 –> 00:11:10,640
and then I put the carabiner through the

294
00:11:10,640 –> 00:11:16,880
rope I put my carabiner through the hook

295
00:11:16,880 –> 00:11:18,800
and I put my carabiner through the rope

296
00:11:18,800 –> 00:11:20,870
and again I want to check again to see

297
00:11:20,870 –> 00:11:22,940
if my trapeze got a little bit twisted

298
00:11:22,940 –> 00:11:25,010
sometimes it gets twisted when you’re

299
00:11:25,010 –> 00:11:27,110
mounting and mine did so now I’m going

300
00:11:27,110 –> 00:11:29,870
to untwist it so it untwist it I’m just

301
00:11:29,870 –> 00:11:36,350
going to unclick I’m going to unclick

302
00:11:36,350 –> 00:11:38,030
and from here I’m just going to hang it

303
00:11:38,030 –> 00:11:39,770
and take a look at the seat so I needed

304
00:11:39,770 –> 00:11:41,690
to give it a little twist and now what

305
00:11:41,690 –> 00:11:42,710
I’m going to do is I’m going to go back

306
00:11:42,710 –> 00:11:44,510
through the rope and the carabiner and

307
00:11:44,510 –> 00:11:46,250
so now we’re I’ve done is I’ve lowered

308
00:11:46,250 –> 00:11:47,780
the trap he is right about to my

309
00:11:47,780 –> 00:11:49,490
bellybutton level so it’s much lower

310
00:11:49,490 –> 00:11:51,830
than it was before it falls right about

311
00:11:51,830 –> 00:11:53,540
at my waist this is the perfect height

312
00:11:53,540 –> 00:11:55,850
for most people and again if you’d like

313
00:11:55,850 –> 00:11:57,530
to you can go higher but it’s more

314
00:11:57,530 –> 00:11:59,300
challenging to get in and out if you’d

315
00:11:59,300 –> 00:12:00,980
like to even go lower that makes it much

316
00:12:00,980 –> 00:12:04,480
much easier to get in and out

317
00:12:06,890 –> 00:12:09,330
so another common question we get about

318
00:12:09,330 –> 00:12:11,340
the yoga trapeze is how far apart should

319
00:12:11,340 –> 00:12:13,860
the ropes be it’s a very simple question

320
00:12:13,860 –> 00:12:15,779
to answer but it depends on the person

321
00:12:15,779 –> 00:12:17,610
so I have very small shoulders for

322
00:12:17,610 –> 00:12:20,190
example so my width is very different

323
00:12:20,190 –> 00:12:21,870
than someone with very big shoulders the

324
00:12:21,870 –> 00:12:23,730
rule of thumb is make a letter V with

325
00:12:23,730 –> 00:12:25,980
your hands and wherever your hands point

326
00:12:25,980 –> 00:12:27,330
that’s how wide it should be so let me

327
00:12:27,330 –> 00:12:28,500
show you what it looks like I’m going to

328
00:12:28,500 –> 00:12:30,600
turn around stretch my arms up like a

329
00:12:30,600 –> 00:12:32,730
letter V pointed the ceiling and that’s

330
00:12:32,730 –> 00:12:34,770
how wide they should be so in this case

331
00:12:34,770 –> 00:12:36,360
this is set just right for me now if

332
00:12:36,360 –> 00:12:37,650
they’re a little bit wide a little bit

333
00:12:37,650 –> 00:12:39,570
small it doesn’t really matter you just

334
00:12:39,570 –> 00:12:41,040
want to get within that range so make a

335
00:12:41,040 –> 00:12:42,600
letter view with your hands and that’s

336
00:12:42,600 –> 00:12:49,080
where they go so to get into the trapeze

337
00:12:49,080 –> 00:12:51,210
it’s very simple you take your hands and

338
00:12:51,210 –> 00:12:54,150
you grab onto the top handles and you

339
00:12:54,150 –> 00:12:58,230
lift with your arms and you sit down in

340
00:12:58,230 –> 00:12:59,580
the seat now if that’s too challenging

341
00:12:59,580 –> 00:13:01,890
you can use a stool or you could even

342
00:13:01,890 –> 00:13:04,170
lower your trapeze even lower down and

343
00:13:04,170 –> 00:13:06,029
here’s the important part as I’m sitting

344
00:13:06,029 –> 00:13:08,430
here in the trapeze I want to adjust the

345
00:13:08,430 –> 00:13:09,060
seat

346
00:13:09,060 –> 00:13:11,160
by using these clips here on the sides

347
00:13:11,160 –> 00:13:14,370
so I can slide the clips up and I can

348
00:13:14,370 –> 00:13:16,589
slide the clips up and now we’re going

349
00:13:16,589 –> 00:13:18,089
to do is I’m going to adjust my bum in

350
00:13:18,089 –> 00:13:20,310
this seat what most people want to do is

351
00:13:20,310 –> 00:13:21,990
they want to extend this trapeze on

352
00:13:21,990 –> 00:13:23,730
their legs I’d like you to do the

353
00:13:23,730 –> 00:13:25,560
opposite pull the trapeze back and

354
00:13:25,560 –> 00:13:27,720
wiggle your legs like this and pull the

355
00:13:27,720 –> 00:13:29,460
trapeze down your back you want the

356
00:13:29,460 –> 00:13:32,550
trapeze sling to cradle your bum the

357
00:13:32,550 –> 00:13:34,650
