aerial yoga

Aerial Yoga is a unique technique which uses a  fabric hammock to support the the body into deep stretches and inversions.
With the weight of the body supported, students learn how to achieve proper postural alignment through relaxation rather than effort, enhancing a relaxed and peaceful state of mind as well.
Aerial Yoga will enhance other sporting activities and your traditional Yoga practice in numerous ways.
Challenging traditional Yoga postures such as inversions and deep backbends can be achieved without effort and without strain with the use of the Aerial Yoga hammock, it lengthens muscles, increases flexibility and decompresses the spine, and its great fun!
Deep muscle releases achieved in the air allow students to explore much deeper stretches in their traditional Yoga postures on the floor.
Common injuries caused by over-stretching the shoulders and compression in the lower back are addressed through exercises that strengthen shoulders without compromising flexibility, and by strengthening core abdominal muscles without compression of the spine.
The benefits of Aerial Yoga include: decompression of joints, relieving pressure while aligning the vertebrae of the spine without strain and increased overall agility, strength and flexibility.
hmmm, what do you think?
