Aerial yoga will take your workout to the next level. You don't have to have any prior yoga experience to take an aerial yoga class, but being well versed in floor yoga beforehand can certainly be beneficial.
WHAT IS AERIAL YOGA?
Instead of performing yoga poses on a mat, aerial yoga utilizes a silk hammock or sling that is suspended from the ceiling to perform those same movements. The purpose of the hammock is to provide support through your yoga flow, while also improving flexibility and range of motion. The hammock also takes pressure off certain areas of the body like the head and shoulders, allowing you to reach those more challenging poses like headstands with greater ease. Although most aerial yoga photos you'll find seem to showcase a yogi fully suspended in air, many aerial yoga poses only require you to take one body part such as your foot or leg off the ground.
This class is designed to cover the basics of Aerial Yoga. Learning how to invert, fly, and flow, we will use the silk hammock to keep alignment, build strength in the body and improve flexibility. Appropriate for first time Aerial students as well as those who want to continue to learn or refine their basic Aerial practice.
