Fun Weightless Aerial Yoga

April 1 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

£15
Aerial Yoga classes in South Lincolnshire

Aerial Yoga Class

Join us for this fun, weightless aerial yoga! Pre-booking is required.

In this class you experience yoga in a weightless way. The sling can help you achieve some postures you would find difficult on the floor. Other postures may be more challenging in this weightless environment. Everyone always has fun in these sessions, stretching limits of flexibility and strength.

WHAT IS AERIAL YOGA?

Rather than performing yoga poses on a yoga mat, aerial yoga uses a silk sling or hammock that is suspended from a frame or ceiling to perform those same movements so you have the feeling of being weightless. The hammock provides support through your yoga movements, while also improving flexibility and range of motion. The hammock also takes pressure off areas of the body such as the head and shoulders, letting you reach more challenging poses with greater ease. Some yoga poses may be fully suspended in the air, however, many aerial yoga poses simply require you to take one body part such as your foot or leg off the ground.

IS AERIAL YOGA SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?

Aerial yoga is an enjoyable and transformative experience, however, the practice can be challenging and your body may need some time to calibrate. It is not necessary to have prior yoga experience to take an aerial yoga class, but being familiar in floor yoga beforehand is advantageous.

TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST AERIAL YOGA CLASS

Trust the hammock. The hammock can hold up to 140 stone so no matter your shape, size or ability, you can enjoy aerial yoga.

Wear the right clothes. Wear tight yoga leggings and a top that that ideally covers the underarms rather, than loose trousers and a shirt. A sports bra is recommended.

Don’t wear jewellery. Jewellery can become snagged in the hammock so leave your jewellery at home.

Eat lightly beforehand. Avoid eating a large meal for at least an hour before class, a small snack like a banana beforehand should be fine and will keep your blood sugar up.

Speak up. If you are uncomfortable in a pose, or need help handling the hammock, don’t be afraid to speak up and ask your aerial yoga instructor for help. We want you to enjoy your aerial yoga class and teach in the best way possible.

Modify when necessary. Even though a movement may look difficult, there are lots of modifications that can be used to make aerial yoga classes accessible to all. Come to your class with an open mind and always speak with your instructor if you need assistance.

Relax. The more difficult moves can be daunting, so just breathe through the poses and go at your own pace.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AERIAL YOGA?

Of course, yoga of any kind aims to increase flexibility, particularly of the spine, increase awareness of mind and body and heighten sensitivity to energy. Aerial yoga, also termed weightless yoga, looks to increase full-body flexibility and strength. It is a full-body type of movement, that aims to strengthen all muscles. The sling allows you to go deeper into the stretches and poses, which further enhances full-body flexibility as you weightlessly stretch and lengthen muscles and find limitless ways to broaden your yoga practice. Weightless yoga is an exciting way to deepen your yoga practice, increase your flexibility and strength and explore new postures while floating!

Aerial yoga can also alleviate neck and back pressure. Standing or sitting all day long allows gravity to weigh down on the spine, by being upside down in certain aerial yoga movements it can help lengthen and decompress the spine.

Aerial yoga is great for promoting circulation throughout the body, as well as for aiding digestion.

Aerial yoga is a low-impact exercise and a good option for those with joint issues who want to move their bodies. Using suspension and gravity, aerial yoga allows participants to create space in the body without compacting joints.
