Aerial yoga is a new, exciting, and FUN form of fitness with the support of a silk hammock. The hammock is super strong and can hold the weight of a baby elephant – over 3,000 pounds! There are numerous benefits of taking an yoga class such as: increasing muscular flexibility, core strengthening, increasing joint mobility, and helping with flexibility by doing some of the work for us as well as giving us the resistance we need to tone the body. Aerial yoga uses moves and poses derived from dance, Pilates, yoga, and calisthenics with the hammock to increase strength, flexibility and decompression of the spinal column. Using a hammock also allows one to become more aware of the body’s alignment, and the body’s proprioceptors (sensory receptors) in other words, it allows you to have a “sense of self”.
