WHAT IS AERIAL YOGA?
Aerial yoga is a practice that incorporates an aerial hammock (also referred to as silks or swing) to enhance a floor-based yoga practice, and adds the elements of suspension and decompression. The hammock provides support to the yoga practitioner so that they can perform poses that are normally difficult to accomplish, like back bends and inversions; the result is an innovative and challenging total body workout.
AERIAL YOGA FOR YOUR SPINE
Aerial yoga is safe inversion therapy with zero compression on the spine! Hanging upside down decompresses the vertebrate of your spine from the long-term effects of gravity. It will help create space between your vertebral discs for the nerves of your spinal cord. Realign and open up your physical body by using gravity!
AERIAL YOGA FOR STRENGTH & FLEXIBILITY
You do not need to be a circus star, lifelong yogi, or natural-born acrobat to come play! Students of all levels will build strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, coordination, and body awareness as you learn to flip, fly, and flow through aerial yoga sequences. Give yourself much deeper stretches, full back extensions because aerial yoga technique achieves more than a simple stretch. Our physical posture changes over time to increase our flexibility, develop strength, and forge deep, full breathing. Deep breathing reinforces a calm and serene attitude, which in turn increases our mental flexibility as well – the purpose of practicing Yoga.
AERIAL YOGA FOR HORMONES AND YOUR STATE OF MIND
Have trouble staying focused? Ready to enhance your performance in a natural way? When you turn upside down in aerial yoga, you increase blood flow to the head & increases the production of mood-boosting neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine plays a number of roles in physical and mental health: Dopamine deficiency is associated with attention deficient disorder, Parkinson’s disease, depression and substance abuse. It also increases blood flow to the kidneys and helps maintain proper kidney function. The reads below will help you explore using inversions in the case of adhd, anxiety, depression and hormone regulation.
