About the event
❗ Limited Space❗
Aerial yoga combines traditional asana (the physical postures of yoga) and yoga wisdoms with the aerial arts. Silk fabrics and/or ropes are hung from above to aid practitioners in forming shapes.
You can be fully supported by the silks — even lying down entirely, like in a hammock — or wrap the silks around particular body parts, keeping other parts on the floor.
Hanging fully or suspending individual body parts is believed to create traction and open your body more gently and intuitively than when you’re on the floor. The silks and ropes can also be helpful for balance.
BENEFITS of Aerial Yoga:
✔️ Improves flexibility, stability, and balance.
✔️ Traction and joint decompression. Hanging upside down and inverting are said to decompress the joints, which can compress over time due to gravity and age.
✔️ Reduced risk factors for heart disease.
✔️ Improved mental health.
✔️ Aerial yoga is not recommended for people who are pregnant or for whom hanging upside down is not medically advised.
✔️ This includes, but is not limited to, people with eye conditions such as cataracts or detached retina, as well as people with unregulated blood pressure.
✔️ Check with a healthcare professional before signing up for your first class.
