For safe and comfortable inversion sit in the middle of the Omgym sling and with the back edge of fabric placed at the sacrum which is located at the base of the spine just above the buttocks.
Keeping the back edge of the fabric against the sacrum, use the middle handles and spread your legs wide as you slowly lower your upper body. Remember to breath normally.
Keeping your legs spread wide lean back. The front of your thighs will push into the fabric of the sling which will support you during your inversion.
With your knees to the outside of the sling bend your knees (about 90 degrees) and wrap your lower legs around the fabric, hooking the sling under your calves. Place the soles of your feet together.
You can now release your hands to experience full inversion. Relax and indulge as your body decompresses. Inhale and exhale deeply. Remember to always listen to your body and rise up when it feels good.
