AERIAL YOGA NOW AT SBY

WHAT IS AERIAL YOGA ?

It is the practice of yoga poses incorporating a soft fabric hammock. It is suspended off the ground. The hammock is a prop, just like a strap or block, intended to assist alignment and provide the immediate benefit of spinal decompression. With the weight of the body partially or fully supported along with the help of gravity, we can explore and create space in the body. Without the compression of the joints and spine we can achieve proper posture and alignment.

IS IT DIFFICULT?

We accommodate all levels of difficulty in a progression format. The poses and movements start out fairly easy and do progress to more difficult movements. Melanie and Mary Ann will guide you through every step of the way. Some prior training in yoga is helpful.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR CLASS?

Do not use hand lotion, wear jewelry, belts, or clothing with gems, or anything that could snag the fabric. Avoid baggy clothing and wear a short sleeve shirt as deodorant stains the hammocks. Avoid eating or drinking acidic liquids an hour prior to class.

While practicing Aerial Yoga, students alternate between hammocks and mats to facilitate awareness of the body in all planes. Students move at their own pace.
