Aerial Yoga is a comprehensive fitness technique designed to increase one's overall health and physical agility while having fun and creating beauty. This combination of exercises, as a sequence, is intended to decompress one's spine and align the body from head to toe while stretching and strengthening one's muscles. The Aerial hammock is a structural fabric that is connected from two overhead points acting like a swing. This new yoga prop acts as a soft trapeze, supporting you as you master simple suspension techniques leading to advanced poses. This adaptable yoga prop enables students of all ages and levels to gain benefit. It can be used in passive, restorative classes through to physically active and technically advanced classes.

Aerial Yoga is not suitable if you have any of the following conditions: unmedicated high or low blood pressure, heart disease, any recent surgeries, glaucoma, vertigo and pregnancy. If you have any of these conditions you will need medical clearance before attending classes.
What to Wear
The hammock fabric is very strong but can snag easily on sharp objects. For this reason students must not wear any jewellery, hair clips/pins or clothing with zippers. Finger and toe nails must be cut short and filed smooth. For hygiene and cleanliness students must not wear any makeup, ensure your hands and feet are clean and wear tops or tee shirts with sleeves (no singlets).
