Additional Information and FAQ
Aerial yoga is yoga practiced in a hammock suspended from the ceiling giving the practitioner ease of movement and safe accessibility to postures that normally could not be accessed from the floor.
Being in the fabric supports the spine/hips/Joints in a way that allows students to maneuver in ways that they couldn't do otherwise.
This safe and fun style of yoga has many benefits and can be practiced by anyone of any size, age and shape. You do not have to be an acrobat at all! In fact it's quite the opposite. Flexibility and strength are not required to attend an aerial yoga class.
In fact, the ACE (American Council of Exercise) found that women who did 350 minute aerial yoga classes Per week for six weeks Lost an average of 2 1/2 pounds and 2% body fat as well as an average of 1 inch off of their waist!
The benefits of aerial yoga include but are not limited to:
•Decompression of the spine
•Myofascial tissue release
•Greater muscle tone
•The ability to safely experience more challenging poses
•Greater calorie burn
•Increase in energy
•Lots of Fun!
Tips for a successful class:
•Hammocks can snag. Do not wear jewelry, belts, or clothing with rhinestones or anything that sticks out and could potentially snag the fabric. Please trim finger/toenails because they can snag the fabric too. If you have a ring that will not come off cover it with medical tape.
•do not wear perfumes, lotions, heavy makeup or essential oils to class as they may stain or eat away at the fabric.
•Please make sure your hands and feet are clean
•Let your instructor know of any injury or physical issues you have before class(pregnancy/injury/illness)
•Using the hammock while under the influence of alcohol or drugs will cause severe motion sickness.
•If you have had botox or other skin fillers, wait 24 hours before doing inversions
•Avoid acidic or spicy foods and heavy meals for at least 1-2 hours before class.
•please do not smoke/vape before class to avoid the fabric picking up the smells.
