Why Should You Try Aerial Yoga?

the benefits of ariel yogaAerial Yoga takes traditional Yoga off the mat and suspends students in soft fabric hammocks. It allows for floating, flowing movements that challenge the body, without compressing the spine or joints. With practice, it can take your Yoga to new heights, literally. Besides being very cool, here are some other reasons you should try Aerial Yoga.

  • Aerial Yoga Is a Total Body Workout

    The nature of the movements engages just about every muscle in your body. It will serve to help tone and define your muscles and regenerate your joints.

  • Aerial Yoga Offers Psychological Benefits

    As with any other workout, it improves your mental state by increasing the happy hormones released during exercise. It can serve to clear the mind and eliminate stress through movement and meditation.

  • Aerial Yoga Improves Flexibility

    The suspension allows students to be supported by the hammocks; this may help free up movement, and release tight muscles and joints. It will also safely increase spinal and shoulder flexibility. The result is a deepened practice.

  • Aerial Yoga Increases Strength

    Being suspended actively engages the core as students stabilize themselves in postures in the hammock. The entire body will work in coordination for every pose, thus increasing stamina and strengthening muscles you never knew existed!

  • Aerial Yoga Boosts Your Mood

    Performing the traditional Yoga poses while suspended is empowering and will release happy hormones like serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin, dopamine. These hormones boost your mood and help you feel energetic.

  • Aerial Yoga Heals You

    The different types of stretches and twists will improve digestion-related issues like constipation and indigestion. The inverted poses improve circulation and help to detoxify the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Moving the body in challenging ways can fortify your neural connections by sharpening your focus and enhancing memory.

  • Aerial Yoga is Fun

    Let’s be honest: being suspended performing yoga poses above the ground is a thrill. It encourages students to step out of their safe zone and achieve things never imaginable. The nature of it forces you to let go of inhibitions and just enjoy life! All students love how it empowers them. Everyone who has tried it loves it!
