Aerial yoga is a type of yoga that uses a
low-hanging fabric trapeze, called a hammock or sling, to suspend, invert, and challenge
familiar yoga postures. The sling is hung at waist-height, and body
weight is shared between the sling and the floor, or suspended entirely in the sling.
Although every class is different, you can expect to explore familiar postures such as
downward facing dog, camel pose, tree pose, wheel pose, plow position, cobbler’s pose,
warrior 1 and 2, L-shaped handstand, spinal twists, and of course, deep relaxation.
The yoga sling takes stress off the joints, decompresses the spine, allows gravity to
ease you deeper into postures, and challenges your proprioceptive sense.
There is no aerial or yoga experience needed to take your first class. We recommend a weekly
practice, either in conjunction with, or without, a ground yoga practice as well. Please show
up at least 10 minutes early for your first class. Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing
that covers the armpits and knees, and remove all jewelry from your arms, hands, and fingers.
