Aerial yoga is a practice that combines already known yoga asanas (poses) with Aerial dance moves, to create a hybrid of hatha yoga and Aerial arts. Many of the same benefits and principles of yoga apply to Aerial yoga, and the use of Aerial hammock is mainly to enhance, deepen, and assist one’s practice. In that sense, the hammock can be viewed as just another yoga prop, like a strap or a block. The highlight of aerial yoga is the safe practice of inversions, that alleviate back pain without putting strain on shoulders or neck, or requiring great strength or balance.
Benefits of Aerial yoga:
- deeper stretches
- low back pain relief
- improved flexibility and joint mobility
- low impact exercise
- safe practice of inversions without compromising the neck or shoulders
- building tremendous core and upper body strength
- developing lean muscles and figure
- improving balance and focus
- mind-body connection
- shavasana (final relaxation) in the hammock is the best relaxation you’ve ever tried
- it’s uplifting, fun and adventurous!
Previous experience in Aerial yoga is preferred (20+ classes), but not necessary. If you would like to take this course, and even teach aerial yoga, but do not have prior experience, please contact us in order to advise you on how to prepare for the training.
If you are a registered/certified yoga and pilates instructor, you will receive a certification and yoga alliance credit for 35h that will allow you to teach aerial yoga.
