Gravity Yoga Trapeze

With Lori Capra

Trapeze yoga is a flow of postures supported by a fabric swing with handles at three different heights. Some postures are performed entirely in the trapeze while others are performed with one or two feet on the ground, on hands and knees, or lying on the ground. 

While full inversion is not required to enjoy the benefits of this practice, there are opportunities to do so for those who are curious and comfortable. The trapeze is not high off the ground, so anyone with a fear of heights doesn’t need to worry!

Lori Capra is a Certified Yoga Instructor & Certified Yoga Trapeze Trainer. Lori has been doing yoga since she was 16. (now 55!) At the age of 20 Lori trained to become a Carpenter and then ran her own construction company for over 30 years, on the East Coast and here in Olympia WA. 

Around 15 years ago Lori discovered and began Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Yoga on the SUP! Lori has been instructing floor yoga and SUP Yoga for over 12 years at various school settings, gyms and the 8th ave Outdoor Yoga Garden.

 In 2017 she opened Gravity Yoga LLC. The first studio dedicated to Yoga Trapeze or Aerial Yoga here in the South Sound. 3 successful years passed, thousands of people were introduced to Yoga Trapeze, a new and exciting addition to the Yoga family.  

Each 50-minute trapeze yoga flow includes time for breathwork at the beginning and savasana at the end. Lori leads every class with demonstrations and dialogue. 

 

Classes are generally quiet and meditative, but the atmosphere is light. Students are supportive and encouraging of one another and Lori fosters a fun community vibe. 

 

All ages and experience levels are welcome in every class and students are encouraged to work within their own limits. Stay curious but stay safe!

Trapeze yoga builds strength and flexibility in the entire body. The nature of the body’s interaction with the trapeze puts special emphasis on core muscles, arm muscles, and grip strength.

Students with stubborn back pain or chronic hip and shoulder issues find therapeutic relief with trapeze yoga.
 
Anyone ready to invert will experience the blissful release of hanging with the head below the heart. Relax into gravity – your spine will thank you!

SATURDAY 10:45AM – 12:00PM

I began teaching yoga in 2004, after having shifted from studying dance to yoga in 1996. An asana practice feels something like dancing to me in the way it flows from one pose to the next. I found that when you really listen to your body, there’s wisdom there, right where it’s always been. The best thing about yoga, without a doubt, is that there’s always something to learn! I’ve completed two teacher trainings to attain a 500hr certification, as well as a nine month Anusara Intensive, and there will be more to come.

During my evolution as a yoga practitioner I’ve gotten to study Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar, Anusara, Yin, and Hatha yoga. As an Instructor, I try to celebrate all of us being exactly where we each need to be in our practice, respecting the process and choosing the journey over the destination. It’s definitely within the sangha/yoga community that we challenge, inspire, and support one another with a foundational understanding that we’re all made of the same stuff. Yoga is like coming home. 

Yoga for All

With Gabe Maddox

This dynamic flow is catered for all ages and skill levels. I’m keenly aware of the bodies in class and their specific needs.

My class is specifically suited to bodies 55+ and will be guided with care. Thank you for sharing the gift of your presence with me.

MONDAY 10AM-11AM 

I began teaching movement in 2007. For 15 years, I have enjoyed facilitating embodiment of all kinds. It started with gymnastics, evolved to classical ballet and furthered into daily yoga practice.

I studied movement theory, improvisation and kinesiology at Weber State University and University of Utah.
More recently I performed in the local Seattle area during the pandemic with Jerboa Dance.

I believe that ritual is the basis for coming home to yourself, within your body.
I’m a certified yoga alliance 200hr instructor, I studied with Yoga Farm Ithaca.
I’m elated to have the opportunity to build ritual with you here in the welcoming community that is Olympia.
