Due to limited space, we ask that you sign up ahead of time for aerial yoga classes. You may sign up online or call to register.
Also called “anti-gravity,” aerial yoga classes combine traditional yoga methodology and the alignment principles of Iyengar yoga with weightlessness for flexibility, strength and deep relaxation. The Yoga Swing serves as a prop, which makes it possible for all levels to experience fun and ease in a yoga practice. Classes are designed to modify the postures using the support of the swing. As with the use of any yoga prop, you will find that you can hold and balance in the pose longer to fully absorb the benefits of the yoga.
Before taking an Aerial Level 1 class ALL NEW Aerial students are required to attend the Aerial Basics class on Sunday or enroll in at least one private lesson to become familiar with the equipment, safety and terminology. This will build your level of comfort and ensure you get the most out of your Aerial Yoga practice.
