This dynamic series will accommodate any experience level, ages 7 – 12. Aerial yoga is a safe way to learn coordination and proprioception: where your body is in space. As the child twists, turns, balances, stretches and hangs upside down, supported by the aerial silk hammock, there is a great increase in body awareness. This series facilitates progressive learning – from basic to more advanced coordination, strength and balance skills.Aerial yoga uses a low-hanging hammock to support the weight of the body so the child can achieve proper postural alignment. The ending shavasana pose, cocooned and slightly swinging in the hammock, is deeply relaxing.
Clothing requirements: no zippers, Velcro, buttons, sequins, grommets or jewelry that could compromise the aerial fabric. Contradictions include heart conditions and glaucoma. Students with back or neck conditions should obtain doctor approval before attending – depending on the nature of the condition, the aerial practice could be very helpful or deleterious.
