Aerial Yoga

We offer Aerial Yoga and a variety of traditional Mat Yoga Classes

Aerial Yoga is a young practice and it differs from aerial fitness. In aerial yoga the focus is on using the fabric as an integral prop rather than on the "flips and tricks" of aerial fitness. Using the support of the aerial hammock in traditional yoga poses enhances the ability to increase stretching and strengthening in the body.

Gravity stresses our bodies by compressing the spine and joints, aerial yoga counteracts those effects by allowing decompression, releases muscle tension, and improves circulation. Unlike traditional yoga, aerial yoga allows for a deepened overall practice.

Benefits of Aerial Yoga:

  • Develop upper body and core strength
  • Intermediate and advanced poses become better accessible
  • Some poses become more challenging
  • Inversion therapy enforces proper posture and helps ease back pain
  • Conquer fear and build self esteem
  • Decompression of the spine through inversions
  • Pressure provides myo-fascial release
  • Inversion therapy can help treat varicose veins and increase circulation
  • Compression provides sensory feedback
  • Myofascial release to improve muscle function, enhance circulation, movement, flexibility, and release/reduce knots/pains.
  • relieve joint pressure and spinal decompression that floor workouts can aggravate.

Contraindications for Aerial Yoga:

  • Pregnancy
  • Glaucoma
  • Recent surgery
  • Heart disease, very high or very low blood pressure
  • Easy onset of vertigo
  • Recent head injury or concussion
  • Hiatal Hernia
  • Disc Herniation
  • Recent stroke
  • Artificial or Re-surfaced hips
  • Botox (within 24 hours)
  • Brittle or weak bones such as in osteoporosis

Notice:We highly recommend, especially if you have had a spinal injury or any other medical condition, you check with your doctor before participating in an aerial yoga class.

A Note from the Owner: I want to assure my students (both present and future) that I take your safety and well being with the utmost importance and respect. The studio is cleaned and sanitized before and after every class. We pride ourselves on being a small, intimate studio keeping class sizes small and creating a safe, welcoming space to practice.
