Aerial Yoga is a form of Yoga that is done using soft, fabric hammocks that hang from the ceiling. This can be a great way to work on your fitness, flexibility, muscle strength, and more. It's a unique form of Yoga that allows you to get deeper into poses with a low impact approach. It's beginner-friendly, it's unique, And it's super fun!
This Aerial Yoga class is not about flips & tricks (there'll be some if you wish to give them a try, but don't worry, it's not an acrobatics led class!). This class is an escape from your stressful week/day, a time for you to curl up, hang out and get super strong, unwind while you restore body, mind & soul.
The hammock offers a unique feeling of being 'weightless' and supported - perfect if you have stiffness/aches or pains. It's ideal for Yoga beginners to advanced! Whether you are a long-time Yogi or dreaming about trying Yoga for the first time, this is a fun and unique way to discover Yoga from a new perspective. Here you can access asanas beyond your reach in a traditional yoga class – true inversions, deeper supported backbends, attainable handstands, and cocoon-like savasana.
