Elongating the Spine – Will FlyHighYoga™ Make me Taller?

Actually, it will. With use of a FHY™ Belt your spine will decompress, elongate and therefore you will be by the end of FHY Practice taller that you’ve been when you started. FHY™ isn’t working like a pill for growth, so don’t expect you will suddenly gain extra 20cm, but it will stretch your spine and muscles around it so you will be your tallest natural version of yourself. 😉

Since there is virtually no pressure placed on the joints throughout the body when practicing aerial or anti-gravity yoga, muscles throughout the body stretch and strengthen making you taller. After just one session, you will “grow” a couple of centimetres. When naturally going about your day, gravity compresses the spine. This means that you are actually shorter later in the day than in the morning. The hanging yoga belt takes advantage of gravity and decompresses the spine making you taller and more relaxed. FHY™ works to restore length to the spine for healthy alignment and energy flow.

What Should I Wear?

Dress not to impress, dress to do yoga. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow a full range of movement, such as yoga pants and tops. Wear clothing that covers your armpit area, backs of the knees, and entire midriff. Try to avoid extremely loose clothing for the extra fabric may get in the way.

In addition, you should not wear any jewelry, necklaces, bracelets, rings, watches, hair clips, or earrings, that may get caught on the belt.

Why Should I Get the Hanging Belt Over Other Yoga Swings and Hammocks?

Available yoga swings, silks and hammocks are more cumbersome and complicated than FHY™ Hanging Belt. The hanging belt is all about practicing yoga with simplicity while sustaining functionality. The FlyHighYoga™ Hanging Belt has simple, sleek design functions at the same level as its complex competitor. However it’s a much better price. Yoga is about simplifying your life. 😉
