Feeling ready to occupy vertical space doing yoga? This class is for every body to benefit from the poses of yoga. The aerial hammock is here to be your friend, your balance, your support in this yoga class. Throughout this class, you find traditional yoga poses as well as some aerial variations. The silky, sling-like hammock, which hangs and swivels from the ceiling, acts as another yoga prop. It assists you with both balance and stability, wrapping around you to hold your full body’s weight so that you feel comfortable and completely supported. Inversions anyone? The hammock also serves as your very own spotter, allowing you to experience and feel benefits from yoga poses you did not think possible.
This aerial yoga class is extremely easy on the joints and will help you to feel proper core engagement, build full body strength, deepen any stretch to increase flexibility. You will correct misalignments within the body, strengthen your yoga mat practice, and bring about feelings of relaxation and bliss as you crawl into your hammock cocoon for savasana at the end of the practice.
