Aerial yoga is a new kind of workout invented by aerial performer Christopher Harrison—a former gymnast and Broadway choreographer. It involves performing a series of exercises inspired by yoga, Pilates, calisthenics and aerial acrobatics in a hammock-like apparatus, in order to achieve a total-body workout.
Aerial Yoga is a new style of Yoga that uses a fabric hammock as a tool to help students achieve the traditional Yoga postures. Students can also explore more advanced postures with the support of the hammock. This is one of our speciality classes. Aerial Yoga invites students of All Levels.
Restorative Aerial Yoga
Restorative Yoga is a gentle, meditative flow that is perfect for those who are looking for a practice that will give you time to connect at a deep level. In this class, props are used to support the body so that you can hold poses for longer, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to eliminate unnecessary straining. Restorative Aerial Yoga focuses the mind as it floats the body through a series of gentle motions, deeply opening the entire spine, hips, and connective tissues of the body. It incorporates levitating meditations, and a floating savasana. The moving nature of this class requires that students be able to get to the floor and back up without assistance.
