Yoga has always been celebrated for its ability to enhance physical and mental wellbeing, but let’s take yoga to new heights!
What is Aerial Yoga?
Aerial Yoga is a fusion of traditional yoga, acrobatics, and aerial arts. Aerial Yoga is a form of exercise combining yoga poses with the use of a fabric hammock suspended from the ceiling. The hammock is there to support your body, allowing you to perform various yoga poses, stretches, and inversions. The hammock allows many skills that would be very difficult on the ground and with support.
Benefits of Aerial Yoga:
1. Enhancing Strength and Flexibility
The hammock allows you to deepen into stretches enhancing your flexibility whilst engaging your muscles, especially your core, arms, and legs. Aerial yoga uses your strength and balance to allow you to increase your flexibility.
2. Stress Reduction
The gentle rocking and swaying sensation of the hammock creates a soothing and meditative experience. Aerial yoga allows you to escape from the demands of daily life, offering a sense of relaxation and stress relief.
3. Improved Balance and Coordination
Balancing on the ground is hard enough sometimes, but balancing in the air challenges your coordination and balance. Over time, this can lead to an improved sense of body awareness.
