Yoga is an ancient, versatile exercise that can range from being deeply meditative to an intense workout. Trampoline Yoga falls into a happy place, somewhere in the middle of all the variations. After speaking with William Hedberg, contemporary dancer, California Institute for the Arts movement educator and founder of New York’s Shen Tao Studio, I began to understand that Trampoline Yoga is blossoming into a full blown trend for good reason.

If you are considering switching up your routine, I present you with five solid reasons to give Trampoline Yoga a go, courtesy of Mr. Hedberg.

Beginner Friendly

You don’t need yoga experience to start out. Hedberg notes that for one of his classes, you only need a sense of humor. “Pay attention to your weight,” he adds. Starting out is all about finding balance between gravity and levity, as well as exploring your curiosity.

Not only is the exercise beginner friendly, but it is great for all ages. “My mom just had a hip replacement; it’s been helpful for her. It has a massage quality,” says Hedberg.

The Challenge is Adjustable

Being just as versatile as basic yoga; you can add or take away things to make it more, or less, difficult. “It has its own unique challenges; it’s an hour of paying attention to that perfect bounce,” Hedberg explains. Poses range in difficulty and, of course, often consist of bouncing.
