Learn to Defy Gravity with Aerial Yoga!
What is Aerial Yoga?
Aerial Yoga is a relatively new approach to a traditional yoga practice. We use a silk-like fabric called a ‘hammock’ or ‘swing’ to support the weight of our bodies, helping us achieve various postures with more depth, ease and excitement. By relieving 20-80% of body weight, the hammock allows individuals to rapidly increase their flexibility while improving balance and core strength. In doing so, individuals are able to reach more advanced yoga poses if desired, like inversions, offering drastic improvements in health and vitality in a short amount of time. In addition, the swings are used as “wraps” on our bodies that gently massage and stimulate various acupressure meridians of the body. An overall detox effect can be experienced and felt by practitioners.
Who can take Aerial Yoga?
This class is designed for beginners through advanced exercisers. No yoga experience is needed. Our instructors enjoy sharing the benefits of aerial yoga and creating a comfortable atmosphere for new people to experience yoga. No yoga experience is needed.
Is it safe and what is the weight limit?
We take the safety of our clients and instructors very seriously. Our yoga hammocks, steel carabiners & structure are rigged to hold over 1,000 pounds worth of dynamic movement weight. Weight limit is not an issue, we welcome clients of all shapes and sizes. All hammocks and rigging equipment are inspected for wear and/or damage on a regular basis.
Can I eat or drink before class?
Because you will be inverting (going upside down) during class, we advise clients not to eat or drink anything acidic for at least an hour before class starts. This is especially important during the early stages of your aerial practice, as your body won’t be used to inverting yet. Please arrive with a very light stomach.
What should I wear to class?
You should wear form-fitting clothing, to avoid bunching and allow you to move comfortably. For safety concerns as well as to protect the hammock fabric, what not to wear is more of a concern. Please dont wear clothing with gems, sequins, glitter, You may be asked to remove all the following items before class as they will damage the swings: Shoes, jewelry (including earrings), or other sharp or abrasive surfaces.
