We have included the activity of rebounding in our yoga weight loss programs as well as the Ultimate Detox Retreat as we
feel that a light rebounding session perfectly completes our holistic yogic approach to gaining more vitality and better
Yoga works on all levels of our being - physical, mental and emotional and so does rebounding. Light bouncing on a mini
trampoline has a potential to shape the body, clear the mind, release a flood of serotonin, the "happy hormone" into the
bloodstream as well as lift our spirits all at the same time. We get to access a childlike joy and a sense of carefreeness
when bouncing up and down on the mini trampoline and it doesn't feel like it requires any effort.
Besides being great fun, rebounding possesses a multitude of health benefits as proven by NASA. This form of exercise has
been studied extensively by NASA in their quest to find the best way to physically recover astronauts after their return to
earth from space.
NASA has discovered that rebounding is 68% more effective in exercising the whole body than running. Its secret lies in the
fact that it rapidly increases the g-force (from 2g to even 4g depending how fast you accelerate upward and downward) on the
entire body. Every single muscle, tissue, bone and cell in the body responds to an increased gravitational weight and
repeated acceleration and then deceleration which happen over and over again as you continue jumping up and down. This
exercise also has very low impact on the joints, much less so than running.
Rebounding tones up the entire body from head to toe, virtually every single cell gets engaged and nudged into renewal
during this exercise.
Here are some of the benefits of rebounding:
Improves lymph flow
Boosts the immune system
Tones every muscle in the body
Aids in weight loss
Rejuvenates every cell in the body
Aids in detoxification
Regulates blood pressure
Improves bone health
Increases circulation of oxygen in the body
Stimulates the endocrine glands (thyroid, adrenals)
