Well..... I'll tell ya! Let’s just say the hype is strong!
Without assuming you know what aerial yoga is, let’s start there. Imagine aerial arts & yoga had a baby…. Voila! Aerial Yoga was born! Together they have created a beautiful combination of fluidity, strength, flexibility, decompression & support. Imagine, once again, having a yoga strap throughout your entire practice, a yoga teacher adjusting you to the proper alignment getting you deeper into your practice or modifying it to be more supportive and gentle. That’s right, restorative aerial yoga is thing! It doesn’t have to be all flips and tricks, although those are very fun. Aerial Yoga sounds pretty great, ay?! Well… it is sure is!
Aerial yoga, makes the impossible, POSSIBLE! That’s what flying in the hammock will do for you! Fearless flips, backbends, and inversions might have only been a dream before the aerial hammock, but are now beyond feasible. Like anything else, consistency is the key to success. You will take your mat practice to the next level with some pretty badass supportive movements.
Practicing aerial yoga will provide you with benefits that you don’t receive from other practices out there.
Here are my top 5 Benefits to Practicing Aerial Yoga:
Decompression of the spine: Think of an inversion table but so much more fun & easier to get out of.
Less pressure on the hands, neck and shoulders
Enhancing your floor practice – Want to go deeper into a pose? No problem! Want to take it down 10 notches and have yourself a gentle practice? No problem. Using the aerial hammock allows the deepening of your practice and the support of all your poses.
Inversions without risk of injury to the neck or spine. Regardless if you are a novice or an advanced inverter, getting upside reversing the blood flow is incredibly beneficial, including anti-aging!! However, we know inversions aren’t for everyone. Take your time and modify as needed.
