Workshop Details

Aerial yoga is an evolution of a new type of yoga that uses a hammock to enhance traditional yoga asana. With the support of a soft hammock, aerial yoga allows you to explore, refine and advance your traditional asana practice, both in the air and on the ground.

Aya Aerial yoga classes focus on building strength, balance, flexibility and creating challenges that will assist with your emotional growth both on and off the mat. Through the use of inversion therapy (hanging upside down) we stimulate the lymphatic system helping to reduce toxins in the body and allow the spine to decompress and lengthen.

Choose from two courses:

Aya Dymanic Aerial offers a strong class, packed with core strengthening, arm balances and plenty of time to get upside down. This class is suitable for all levels.

Saturdays @ 3.00pm – 4.30pm | 12th May – 2nd June

WEEK 1: Intro to your hammock

WEEK 2: Core strength

WEEK 3: Arm balances

WEEK 4: Length and strength

Aya Restorative Aerial offers a soft approach similar to Yin yoga, focusing on breath, gentle opening of the body and lengthening of the spine. This class is suitable for all levels, including during pregnancy.

Saturdays @ 5.00pm – 6.00pm | 12th May – 2nd June

WEEK 1: Intro to your hammock

WEEK 2: What do you hold in your hips

WEEK 3: Decompress the spine

WEEK 4: Soften and breathe

Although I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years, my “yoga journey” didn’t really start until after the birth of my first child. I was fairly unprepared for Motherhood and found that yoga was the only thing that really allowed me the space to breathe and connect with myself. 
I discovered Aerial yoga at a Yoga Festival in 2015 and the moment I lay back in that hammock I felt like I had come home. As a child I always loved hanging upside down and through aerial yoga I have found an outlet to allow my inner child to shine, while also benefiting from all that yoga has to offer.
Yoga challenges me, helps me find balance and brings me joy, both on and off the mat.
