Aerial Yoga

What is Aerial Yoga?

Aerial Yoga is a type of yoga which uses a hammock or yoga swing suspended from the ceiling allowing students to perform postures that they may not ordinarily be able to attempt on the yoga mat. With your body weight being partially or fully supported by the hammock, students are able to expand their flexibility allowing for you to explore new and traditional asanas.
