WHAT IS AERIAL YOGA?
Don’t let the “aerial” in aerial yoga intimidate you! Aerial yoga is simply a form of yoga that uses a fabric hammock or yoga swing as it’s primary prop allowing students to perform postures that they may not ordinarily be able to attempt on the yoga mat. The hammock, made of a super strong tricot weave nylon, is kept close to the ground, becoming a swing which can support the hips in both forward and back bends. Many students find that yoga postures that are difficult on the ground can be performed more easily and with less strain on the body in mid-air – plus it’s fun!
In addition to the emotional, physical and spiritual benefits of all yoga practice, Aerial yoga has particular benefits for strengthening and stretching the whole body, decompressing the spine, improving circulation, boosting digestion and lifting one’s mood. In particular, Aerial yoga strengthens the core as well as the arms and legs, to support the body in mid-air.
