What is Aerial Yoga?

Aerial Yoga expands the Yoga experience. Aerial yoga utilizes a silky hammock suspended from the ceiling that allows students to find their flow while floating in mid-air and performing Yoga postures that they may not ordinarily be able to attempt in Traditional Yoga. It expands traditional Yoga with moves inspired by pilates, dance and acrobatics. It offers additional benefits and enjoyments.

 

A full body yoga work-out catered to any individual shape or age, this class uses an aerial hammock in various ways including suspensions, inversions, core balance and floor assisted yoga postures.


This unique class is centered to work on body extremities and core to develop strength, flexibility,  motor dynamics, spinal alignment, endurance, reflex sharpness, balance  and somatic perceptions.



Some Benefits of Anti-Gravity Yoga


  • Reduced back pain and soreness in the muscles
  • Increased relaxation and improved mood
  • Anti-aging, due to the counter-gravitational effects on the body
  • Improved flexibility
  • Decompression of the joints and spinal discs
  • Improvement of symptoms in those with breathing conditions
  • Increased muscular strength
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Stress Relief


Is Aerial Yoga Safe?


If you are only suspended three or so feet from the ground as in Aerial Yoga, the risk of injuring yourself from falling is quite minimal. The student is responsible to follow the instruction of the teacher.  



Most people can engage in aerial yoga with few to no problems. However, if any of the following apply to you, you should consider a  different form of exercise or — at the very least — consult with your  doctor and yoga instructor before trying an aerial class:


  • Pregnancy
  • Eye diseases
  • Anyone with heart failure, defined spinal problems, or glaucoma.
  • Recent eye surgery
  • Vertigo
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Bone disorders
  • Extremely High/Low blood pressure
  • Prosthetic hips 
  • Colds/Flu/Any condition that blocks the nasal passage


How can Aerial Yoga practice support your Yoga journey?


Aerial Yoga, through the blending of traditional Asana and the use of  the Aerial Yoga Hammock, creates opportunities for Yogi’s new and  experienced to explore postures that counter the habits of modern life; using gravity as an ally in decompressing, releasing, and transforming  areas of habitual and circumstantial tension.
