Intro to Aerial Yoga : Strength, Flexibility, Balance
Introductory classes are designed to be invitational for the never ever aerial student. The class is a sampling of the flexibility, balance, strength and inversion opportunities in an aerial yoga practice. In Aerial yoga we use a silk hammock attached to the ceiling as a powerful and effective prop to practice yoga. This is similar to a traditional yoga class on the floor, where we may use any number of props such as a block, a blanket, a strap or a bolster to help assist in our practice. In aerial yoga we use the hammock throughout the entire class almost as a super-prop that assists us in varying ways across a multitude of postures, seamlessly transitioning from one position to the next. The hammock singularly supports, deepens and challenges each students’ yoga practice. And unlike a floor based yoga class, we also employ the hammock to allow us to safely swing, fly and invert. (wheeee!) The class experience feels lighter, more graceful, free and whimsical than a class on the ground, and appeals to both yogis and “I’m not a yoga person” people, while staying authentic to the ancient teachings of yoga.
