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. This 4 week course will introduce you to both restorative and dynamic aerial yoga.
WEEK 1: Dynamic – get to know your hammock while keeping your feet on the ground. An introductory class to using the hammock to enhance movement and strength. Get comfortable being upside down while getting the full benefits of inversions.
WEEK 2: Restorative – Lengthen, soften and allow the hammock to open your body and soften your mind.
WEEK 3: Dynamic – Get upside down and work into the core and arm balances.
WEEK 4: Restorative – Focus on breath, and lengthen the spine, this class will leave you feeling nourished and balanced (and maybe a little taller)
