The patent pending TreeYoga Multi-Sling (TYMS) kit is a set of 2 red padded body slings and 1 or more blue unpadded Tree slings constructed of industrial strength sling material and heavy duty thread into interlocked loops. The red slings are padded with a thick, comfortable neoprene insert for maximum comfort, and together the kit weighs about 2 pounds, but can carry up to 7500 pounds of pressure.

Each kit comes in it’s own light-weight backpack and is set up and ready for use. Simply pull the blue loop around the trunk or limb of a healthy tree, pull the red padded slings through the loop and pull tightly.

TreeYoga and the TreeYoga Multi-Sling (TYMS) were created by Hal Pruessner in the summer of 2007 with the help of local yoga instructors based in Dallas, Texas.

Since the official launch of the product that fall, TreeYoga multi-slings are being used in more than 20 states, and 15 countries around the world.

Created as a means to provide a safe, effective and fun yoga practice out in nature, the TreeYoga Multi-Sling allows anyone to enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating outdoor experience.

They took all the trees

And put them in a tree museum

And they charged all the people

A dollar and a half just to see'em.

Don't it always seem to go

That you don't know what you've got

Till it's gone.

They paved paradise

And put up a parking lot.

Joni Mitchell, Big Yellow Taxi

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars...and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers - for no reason.  It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.
