Shoot for the stars with Aerial Yoga
Introduction to Aerial Yoga
Aerial yoga involves performing a series of exercises inspired by yoga, pilates and aerial acrobatics in a silk hammock-like apparatus in order to acheive a total body work out. Think Cirque du Soleil for gym-goers and yoga practitioners. It's also incredibly fun with plenty of benefits that your body would thank you for!
What to expect
So how do you prepare to have your work turned upside down? Drop all expectations! Like any brand new experience, it is important to have an open mind. Listen to your instructor and most importantly, trust the hammock. It may ease your mind to know that each hammock can actully support up to 2,000 lbs (970kg). As for the hardware that attaches the hammocks to the ceiling, it is all mountain climbing rated. Once you are able to overcome that initial fear, brace yourself for a life changing experience!
"I had the privilege to take a private session with one of your instructors Anya. I wanted to thank you so very much for the experience. I truly loved every minute of the practice and the ending savasana within the cocoon that I had worked so hard for was pure bliss! When my foot hit the sidewalk out side your studio I felt taller and every step was effortless. My upper body was so light and lifted that my step felt so easy I almost bounced with each step!

Aerial Yoga for the modern day practitioner
Let go and let gravity do the work for you. For regular yoga practioners, inversions might not be new to you. Experience the full benefits of inversion with a silk hammock. Let your spine freely decompress. This method of anti gravity yoga provides not only a comprehensive total body workout, it also soothes the nervous system and quiets the mind through floating mediation and savasana.
Why we encourage private aerial yoga classes
In short, the whole experience is low-pressure but THRILLING, and an unusual way to explore the limits of your comfort zone. If you’ve not yet mastered inversions/headstands in floor-work yoga, there’s no better place to get a foretaste of the sublime state of being upside-down! I for one now want hang there all day like a serene, surreptitious Bat.
