COME AND TRY A NEW WAY OF YOGA

Aerial Yoga

AERIAL YOGA

Aerial Yoga is quite a new form of yoga, that includes both traditional yoga and Pilates movements jazzed up with dance-inspired exercises and postures that defy gravity. True to its namesake, this sport is practiced by using a hammock or a swing of soft material that is fixed to the ceiling, making movements easier and providing support. Similar to traditional type, this activity also grants several benefits adding some unique ones that will definitely make you try this new way of working out.

Benefits of Aerial Yoga

The greatest thing about aerial yoga is that it releases tension thanks to the suspension and moves your entire body hence lengthening ligaments, strengthening core muscles and also improving spinal and shoulder flexibility. It not only tones and redefines the muscles of both the upper and lower body, but also regenerate and strengthens the joints. According to this, those who suffer from back pain, this is an excellent option too since it puts less stress on the back along with the decompression of the spine allowing it to lengthen.

There are numerous practices in traditional yoga that are hard to achieve and require a certain ability level. However, aerial yoga makes your stretches more effective while you are suspended against gravity, making you learn new skills and perform even difficult poses that you could not earlier.

Above all, we mustn’t forget about the effects that aerial yoga has on the internal body functioning. It includes the improvement of all the circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems as well as healing various digestion-related issues, such as constipation and indigestion. Thanks to the high amount of stretching, the abdomen gets relaxed and relieves from irritable bowel syndrome also.

Additionally, just like other activities, this is a perfect way to get rid of all your stress and frustrations and enhances your mood by rebuilding your emotional system. The spiritually uplifting experience of hanging free in the air has a strengthening power on neutral connections as well, which results better memory, concentration and better mental abilities, like intelligence.
