Aerial Yoga and Aerial Hammock

In both Aerial Yoga and Aerial Hammock, you will be utilizing a fabric hammock (sling) for the practice of traditional yoga poses. Classes include floor exercises, standing exercises, balances and suspended postures. The fabric is used throughout the practice to help support and guide the body. Some postures are held to increase stamina while others are a flowing sequence that encourages attention to deep quality of breath. Aerial yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility. Inversions alleviate back and neck compression and help to align the spine. In addition to its therapeutic value, aerial work also infuses a yoga practice with a sense of playfulness and curiosity. A class may have you wrapped cocoon-like in the fabric or hanging like a bat. The main difference between Aerial Yoga and Aerial Hammock is that Aerial Hammock incorporates many yoga poses into the various tricks, poses and sequences. All levels welcome and encouraged!
