The TRX Suspension Trainer provides an excellent tool to scale, complement and improve your yoga practice. We’ve partnered with Yoga and Fitness Instructor, and Under Armour Athlete Shauna Harrison to show you how to incorporate the TRX Suspension Trainer into your yoga practice.
Warrior II is a popular yoga pose that strengthens the legs, and opens up the hips and chest. The TRX Suspension Trainer assists in helping you open the chest by positioning the shoulders down and back while holding your arms and hands in a powerful extended position allowing you to go deeper into your pose.
Adjust the straps to mid-length. This may need to be adjusted higher or lower depending on your arm length. Stand beneath your anchor point with one hand on each handle. Step forward with one foot into a lunge position and then turn out your back foot so that it is perpendicular to the front heel. Place the weight in the outside of the back foot with your arms reaching out. Press down into the handles to engage under the shoulder blades. Turn your head so you are looking over the front fingertips. To return, bring the arms back to center and step back with the front leg.
In this progression, follow the similar set-up as progression 1, but grab both handles with the back hand. Maintain the front arm at even height and continue to engage through both arms evenly.
