This class is aimed at beginners and advanced Yogis alike who are looking to take their yoga practise to the next level. We will be exploring the transformation of grounded Vinyasa Yoga to a Flying Flow. Aerial Yoga uses a hammock to support traditional yoga postures (asanas) along with suspended moves allowing you to feel more space and expansion.
The History of Aerial Yoga
Aerial Yoga was developed by acrobat and Circus performer Christopher Harrison around 10 years ago. Harrison was in a troupe named Antigravity and began using the hammock to stretch before shows. He realised its potential whilst experimenting with inversions noticing how dangling upside-down for one minute would decompress his spine allowing any discomfort to soon pass. These “zero-compression inversions” relieve pressure from the neck and spine increasing blood flow to the brain. The act of being upside down oxygenates the blood energising blood cells and creating feelings of bliss. Aerial/Antigravity Yoga has increased in popularity substantially since then and is an invigorating, strengthening, restorative practise.
